47 Hospital Road, Arlesey, Bedfordshire. SG15 6RH news It has been just over a year since the election and the new Council formed. It met 24 times, significantly more than in a typical year, this was so it could begin to deal with a number of legacy issues it inherited. Communications and accountability were an early priority. We trust that residents have benefitted from improved access to councillors, council meetings and information. As well as working on improvements to the way Council operates, we have been keen to get things done. A new Clerk (Susan Foulkes) was appointed in December. New Playground equipment, Street furniture and Christmas lights have been installed and maintained. We have also provided funding for a number of local projects and initiated high level engagement with CBC in relation to planning matters. We are not complacent and recognise there is much more we can and must do to support the best interests of Arlesey. In the near future that means exploring further the possibility of CCTV (a recent FUNDING application we made was declined), maintaining focus on ensuring Arlesey gets the best from current and forthcoming development and establishing funding to introduce a Lollipop person to make walking to school safer for our Children. We are looking for sponsorship. Can you or your business help ? One final plea that we can all help with – please drive and park safely and courteously throughout Arlesey. • Open from 7.00am to 6.15pm. No extra charge for starting at 7.00am • 2, 3 & 4 year old free childcare can be accessed at this nursery* *Subject to terms and conditions of Central Beds Council and Acre Wood Day Nursery (Arlesey) Ltd. 01462 835550 www.acrewooddaynursery.co.uk Prices on our website: BATHROOM & SHOWER INSTALLATIONS BOILER & COOKER INSTALLATIONS BOILER SERVICING UNDERFLOOR HEATING & HEATING UPGRADES ALL NEW PLUMBING & HEATING INSTALLATIONS POWER FLUSHING Andy Martini 01462 835617 / 07950 311963 208308 andy@almplumbingandheating.co.uk www.almplumbingandheating.co.uk 25 Marigold Way, Stotfold, SG5 4HQ Arlesey will be having a Music and Arts Festival this year, October 8th – 23rd.
