Motorway Closures

Chilworth residents may be interested to know about some motorway closures that will take place soon to facilitate resurfacing and ‘smartening’ of the M27. As you’ll see from the letter here, diversions will push traffic onto the A27 through Chilworth. The poor standard of English grammar employed leaves the message open to interpretation. The first two closures are clearly overnight lane closures only.  It’s not entirely clear that the subsequent four week complete closure eastbound and four week complete closure westbound are also overnight only. We must hope so, or else February and March would be good months to be away on a cruise!

Police Security Session

For the benefit of residents concerned about the recent uptick in local petty crime Cllr Finlay has arranged for the police to visit us to give their current views and advice. The session will be in the Coach House at Chilworth Manor on Monday, 20th March at 7.30pm.  Several relevant companies have promised to attend so come along and see how to improve your security.

Better than Streetlife?

Today, Streetlife announced it had merged with Nextdoor. Several Chilworth residents use Streetlife, but there’s a problem. To try for a ‘critical mass’ Streetlife lumps us in with people from miles away, so many of the topics aired have no relevance.  Nextdoor, on the other hand looks to be much better thought out.  “Nextdoor Chilworth” is currently being piloted, and only needs a few more members to become permanent.  Because it allows geographic fine tuning, it should be a real asset for communication within the village.  Take a look, and sign up here.  There’s also a new service on this, the Chilworth website, that you may like to try although it may prove shortlived if Nextdoor lives up to its early promise.
