Wereham News July

June Update from the Wereham Village Hall Committee
The new village hall is complete and now we are busy moving everything across from the old hall. It has been a massive effort to get to this point but what a reward to see its very first use for the Craft Fayre at the beginning of June – definitely worth the wait!!
We have an open weekend scheduled for the weekend of Saturday 30th June – Sunday 1st July. There will be an opportunity to tour the new facilities as well as an introduction to some of the new activities that will be on offer including taster sessions. Please do come along to learn about the exciting activities and opportunities coming to Wereham in the near future. This will also be the very last opportunity to donate to our Buy-a-brick campaign (we might have finished building but there are still bills to be paid and numerous fixtures and fittings that still require funding).
For more regular updates and photos, follow us on our Facebook page.

Wereham News – April

Dear Community Members,

I am a concerned parent of a child that must cross the A134 at Church road daily to arrive at his bus stop for school. I am reaching out to you to find out the best way to open up a new dialogue with you and our neighbourhood of concerned parents and community members. I fear for the life of my child and the lives of each individual that must cross this intersection, as I am sure others must also possess the same trepidation.
As many of you are already aware, a blind spot exists at the crossing on the Church road side of the crossing, as the road bends just before Church Rd. making the ability to safely navigate the crossing even more dangerous. The hazard of the crossing is increased, due to the speed and amount of continual traffic on this road. The posted speed limit is 30 mph, yet many vehicles vastly exceed this speed limit.
I would like to work together to make our community safer for our children. I strongly support the need for the installation of a lit crosswalk, stop sign, traffic light, and/or enforced reduction of speed at this intersection. If anyone has any ideas or information as to how to make this crossing safer for our community please contact me at brianna.bonner@rocketmail.com
