Council’s current financial situation.
Accounts Accounts We have heard that in the next financial year 2016/17 the A338 will be re-surfaced between the Tipple Inn roundabout to the roundabout at Collingbourne Kingston. When we say resurfaced we mean a proper job and not just a patch up. More details of the re-surfacing of the A338 through the Collingbournes. The system has been changed and improved in the following ways:   	The old Clarence number has been replaced by 0300 456 0105.This feeds direct into the Customer Care Centre     and avoids problems that used to arise   for mobile phone callers. 	Reports may now be made online to          	It is now possible to track progress in real time on resolving road maintenance issues that have been reported online. 	Issues that can be reported include council signs, car parks, fly-tipping, potholes, playgrounds, street lighting, roads and drains and manholes, traffic lights, dead animals on a public road, trees and many others.   There is now a new procedure for Reporting  Highways Issues.            also an app is available for smart phone and pad users who can download it from the online reporting website.   www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywilts Road Notices and Updates None to report More details.

They have supported the community please support them.
The Parish Council with the support of local businesses held a Christmas Brunch at the village hall on the 12th December. There was a much bigger turn out than last year and all seemed to enjoy. To all who helped to make it happen a big thank you.
You may have wondered what the rubber hoses were crossing the A338 near Bourne Works before Christmas. They were the technology to monitor the speed of traffic through he village. The results of the metro count in both Ducis and Kingston are now known. This was undertaken to give accurate data of type and average speed through the villages. From the results it appears that speeding is not as bad as we perceive.
MetroCount results are now available.
