Please keep your speed down

Please keep your speed down

Residents are appealing to motorists to slow down on Souldrop High Street following an incident by the green on Saturday 30th July.
“Even though the speed limit is thirty miles per hour, considering the blind bend near the green, that doesn’t give much time to stop if there are kids or pets playing, or horse riders walkers or cyclists using the high street, especially during weekends and summer holidays” one resident commented. “Perhaps it’s time for traffic calming measures, maybe a 20 mile an hour limit or speed ramps” said another resident in discussion.

 

 

“A procession of at least four trial motorbikes tore through the village at a great speed last weekend, I estimate they were doing at least 45 miles per hour, had there have been a horse rider or child in the street coming the other way, they wouldn’t have stood a chance” added the resident (who didn’t wish to be named)

Pig Roast 2016

The Pig Roast on the Village Green saturday July 23rd 2016.
A fine summers day greeted the villagers on Saturday for the annual Pig Roast. At 6am the fire was lit and many villagers helped turn the spit during the morning. By the afternoon the green was crowded with many villagers bringing along cakes and drinks. The afternoon was rather warm and some villagers chilled to the music which was provided outside Lamb Cottage. Later some villagers admitted they had slightly overdone the beverages and with the heat had decided to receede for a nap! Overall a great time was had by all including hero, Jeremy who had saved the pig from biting the dust during an incident. The  roasting pig had slipped of the spit and Jeremy instinctively reached out with his bare hand to save the pig from falling into the fire! Oops, we hope he is alright! Anyway Souldrop.biz and I am sure most of the villagers would like to wish a big thanks to those that provided the pig and wood and set the afternoon up.
