Councillor John Wilson worked hard with Cawthorne Parish Council, local children, BMBC and the local play group this Summer resulting in a play facility being built in Cawthorne. This is the first time in many years Cawthorne has seen such a playground. Your Penistone East Councillor team worked hard to support and secure the funding for this attractive play facility. There are plans and ongoing fund raising to develop and add further equipment to this playground during the next few months.

Community Arts Project

Fund raising

Councillor John Wilson supporting and helping the Hoylandswaine Art Group at one of their fundraising events at St Johns the Evangelist Church in Hoylandswaine raising money for the John Roddam Spencer Stanhope project. This is an ambitious project to uncover and restore a Victorian Church painting of significant importance. This project is engaging both young and old in the community.

Road safety issues.

Local road safety

Improving Road Safety.
Traffic speeding through our villages is a concern for many residents and your local Councillors are working with Parish Councils and the community to find ways of reducing speeds and improving road safety. New signs and a lower speed limit on Halifax Road should provide some relief to residents and businesses in Thurgoland. Your local Councillors have also been deploying the flashing Speed Indicator Devices to identified hot spots and you will have seen these as they are rotated around the area. We are pleased to report that whilst these cannot be used for prosecutions they have been effective in reducing overall average speeds.
