Acomb busy today. Council gives start date for Askham Lane footpath repairs

Acomb car park very busy today. Market and Christmas Fair taking place on Front Street

Acomb market today (Saturday). Lots of stalls and already very busy.

The Council has announced that it will start footpath resurfacing works on Askham Lane near the junction with Ridgeway on 10th December.

The TalkTalk UFO contractors have been undertaking reinstatement work in the Ridgeway area this week. Pressure is growing for a more thorough refurbishment of paths and verges. Some verges badly need edging but the Council are being very coy about what they will do and when

Foxwood flowering as princesses descend on Front Street

Big effort today by Foxgloves volunteers to get the community garden spruced up.
The bee hotel is open and accepting guests!
Back again next Saturday morning if you can give a hand for a few minutes
Last year, Foxwood residents won a “gold” award in the Yorkshire in Bloom contest.
Part of this success was down to individual householders who provided some stunning displays.
The Residents Association is running a contest this year to find the best “plants in a container” display which can be seen from the street.
Judging will take place during the week commencing 17th July.
£100 worth of prizes are up for grabs.
If you think there is a good display at a home near you (which may be your own!) please get in touch.

Lots of movie characters at today’s Acomb Market.
