    MESSAGE FROM FINDON RESIDENT ABOUT SPEEDING

    Unfortunately the new 20mph speed limit and signs seem to be having no effect at all on some drivers. In Horsham Road, many drive at nearly twice the new speed limit.  It is particularly annoying when it has been raining as the trench repair left in the middle of the road by the gas contractors has sunk and collects in it and  speeding motorists send huge amounts of water over any unfortunate pedestrians who happen to be unlucky enough to be in range.

    GARAGE OR SHED REQUIRED

    A Findon resident is in need of outside storage. They wouldn't need access to it during unsociable hours and probably not more often than once a month if that. If anyone has a secure garage or shed with drive up access by car they would be happy to rent out, please ring 07736072945.
