From the 1st February a speed limit of 30 mph will be imposed on Forge Lane. This is set to last for one year. During this time Forge Lane will be used by the heavy traffic involved in the Environmental Agency’s flood defence work, soon to begin.

Just before the end of last year Mike Ixer came up with an idea for year listing I thought it was a good idea. But there's seems to be a lack of interest so what do people think about me putting a year list table on the forum people could text me there totals weekly or daily and like the life list League I would keep it up dated. If I get enough interest I will start it asap
