  An email was sent out to all residents asking what they would like to happen in the village regarding traffic and roads.  Only 6 responses were received so another email will be sent as a reminder.
   As the traffic in Milton Lane has increased due to SAT navs, it was suggested that perhaps a sign could be erected at the top to read 'unsuitable for heavy vehicles' or 'No Access to caves'.
  Mike Pullin was asked about possible 20mph signs to be erected,  but as they have to be in a certain radius of a school, this might not be possible.  Sarah C will phone him and enquire.
