SERVERY & WC FACILITIES

Within ST. MARY’S CHURCH

Our aim is to provide the Kentford Community with a place that can be used by local

clubs, groups and organisations as an indoor meeting area to enhance, grow and

encourage the local community spirit as well as providing a more comfortable space

and facilities for those using the Church for worship.

This project gives all those living in Kentford the opportunity of having a local

meeting place that is easily accessible and within easy walking distance.

We will be applying for grants to help with the cost of this project as well as local

fund raising. If you have any experience in either of these tasks or feel you can help

in any way please contact us, we will be very pleased to hear from you - details

below.

Bury Rd, Kentford, Newmarket CB8, UK

The Parish Council has received the following notification from Suffolk Highways: "We are planning to carry out street lighting works on Bury Road, Kentford between the 2nd and 9th December 2019. This will require a temporary road closure so that we can carry out our works safely. Traffic cones may also be placed to prevent on-street parking so our work site is unobstructed. As we plan roadworks in advance, we schedule extra days to allow for bad weather or other delays beyond our control. If we need to make major changes to our work dates, we will update the information signs on site. When we close the road and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. We make our diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. More information about diversion routes can be found on our "Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” webpage. There may be times that essential emergency works are required to take place on the highway network without advanced notice – you can follow Suffolk Highways on Twitter for the latest emergency roadwork updates - Twitter. Please could you use any contacts within your division or parish to circulate this notification. If you have access to a website, it would be appreciated if you could publish these details online, including the above link to our temporary road works page.
