Following on from the 2012 Stratford CleanUp campaign, the Town Council is again facilitating a 2013 Spring Clean-up. They will be tackling anything from litter, graffiti, signage clutter to road sign cleaning, chewing gum, river banks etc.
If you have any areas which could do with a clean then please send them to Ian Fradgley at firstname.lastname@example.org or better still register them direct on facebook
A full list will be published on facebook and if you would like to join in on the cleanup itself then you can also register on Facebook or just let Ian know.
Here is a good news message from Kate Rolfe
Kate has just been told that phases 1 and 2 (Wordsworth Avenue, Longfellow Road and part of Milton Road) have been officially adopted today. Notices from the County Council will be posted on the roads tomorrow informing all residents. Kate is delighted and is now pushing for phase 3 to be adopted by the end of the year.
You will all be aware that of the increased number of heavy lorries using Clopton Bridge and its impact on congestion in Stratford and so a petition has been launched in order to ask the county council to look at ways of preventing large lorries crossing Clopton Bridge.
Please could everyone consider signing this petition which you can find on the website
just click on the link on the home page
The petition will be presented to the county council by the Lib Dem county councillor, Kate Rolfe, and with 2000 signatures the issue will be debated at Cabinet at the County Council. Over 5000 signatures would ensure that a full debate takes place at a county council meeting.

Following a number of complaints Trinity Mead from residents, the Alveston ward councillors, led by Cllr Diane Walden, carried out a survey of the Trinity Mead area to try and identify the problems around parking. The results are clear cut – three quarters of the people replying to the survey said that poor parking had affected them directly.
The main problem is caused by parking on corners and bends, making it difficult to see past the parked vehicles. As several people put it, ‘accidents waiting to happen’. Some cars park with two wheels on the pavement, presumably trying to be helpful to other road users. However, it’s clear from the survey responses that this in turn is causing problems by partially blocking the pavement for pedestrians and pram and mobility scooter users.
