14th/15th September

Hickling Scarecrow Committee Traffic Control
We are hoping to increase the use of Main Street during Scarecrow Weekend this year
(September 14th/15th) as we are organizing more street entertainment. This means that
traffic flow and safety throughout the village is an even more important consideration than it would normally be. It is not possible to close the roads through the village, nor is that something that many of us would welcome. The best solution seems to be to restrict the parking along Main Street to give more room for pedestrians and limit other hazards. The usual free car parks will be available and by separating the sale of programmes from these we hope to encourage even more visitors to use them.

With the proposed scheme, residents of Main Street who have to park on the street would request a parking permit in advance. Keeping other cars off the road should also mean that residents will have better access to their drives and find it easier to get in and out. Please watch this space, tell us if you need a permit, discuss with us if you are not sure how the scheme will work. We hope it will be a big improvement for everyone – those enjoying Scarecrow Weekend and those needing to use the road for day to day business.
