News from Ward Councillor Mark Dobson

All Swillington councillors attended the summer judging and found the village to be immaculate. Well done to Swillington in Bloom. Unfortunately there has been more vandalism at the Skate Park and we are meeting with the Parish Council to determine its future. We are also looking at increasing safety measures on Astley Lane owing to the many complaints of speeding cars.  Just a reminder that our surgery is 6pm in the Village Hall on the first Wednesday of the month. We look forward to seeing you there. Below is the areas each councillor covers.
