  • Saturday 20 January, I was walking out of the village towards Sleep Lane , it was extremely dark and a car came at speed from the village overtaking a vehicle on the left hand side of the road and passing them in the opposite lane, it was very dangerous and the lack of lighting added to the obvious danger. There is very little lighting in this stretch of the A37 and across the open space leading to Sleep Lane

  • Thieves have now stolen the benches in this area. I can only presume that the lack of lighting gave them the opportunity and cover. These benches were both bolted to the plinths and the matter has been reported to the police. Whitchurch Village council who fitted these benches are sadden by this and would like to claim recompense
