There is increasing concern about car parking at various points throughout the village.

The ERYC Highways Department does not perceive this to be a problem as there is no history of incidents or accidents occurring.

It is important therefore that any minor bump or scrape to vehicles or a near miss is reported to the Highways Authority. Contact:  Email:                                     

You should report incidents of speeding or other anti-social driving behaviour to the local police service using the 101 non-emergency number


Take Care – Stay vigilant. Scammers are not always on the internet or telephone
