If you are interested in the walks around Willington and the open space that is available to play, take your dog or simply enjoy then please come along and support this new group who are trying to protect these areas, make them safe to walk and use plus look at developing new walks. The first meeting was well attended but more support is needed.

The Parish Council have received the following email regarding the railway bridge in Willington:
Advance notice for Repton Road B5008 - Railway Bridge DBP1/15
I am a Structures Engineer with Network Rail and look after all Network Rail Structures in the Derby area.
I am emailing you to give you sight of the work which Network Rail are looking to undertake in the near future (January/February 2017) at this bridge to allow you to discuss it with any local residents who wish to contact yourself in regards to this. More »
Network Rail are in discussions with Derbyshire County Council with regards to installing a safety camera and Number Plate Recognition camera on each side of the bridge on a lamppost. The cameras will be looking directly at the bridge and not at local residents properties.
The sole purpose of this is for Bridge safety, to determine what actually happens just before a bridge strike occurs at this location & to obtain details of the offending vehicles. As this bridge is hit by vehicles on a regular basis (10 time is 2016 so far). The footage from the camera will only be viewed in the event of a bridge strike by Network Rail, Network Rail insurance and possibly the police.
When a bridge strike occurs Network Rail have to close the railway until a qualified examiner, visits site and examines with bridge to determine if the damage is significant or not. During this time the railway is closed and causing delays to the passengers.
Network Rail will be undertaking a letter drop to inform the local residents in the vicinity of the Railway Bridge. I will send you a copy of the letter as well prior to it being sent out to the local residents.
If you have any questions about the above please do not hesitate to contact myself on the numbers below.

The Parish Council in conjunction with the Parish Church are compiling a local directory for residents which details all local groups and businesses. However we are sure there are plenty of local self employed people who do not have a 'shop front' who would like to be included. Its free and for the benefit of the Parish so please can you contact the clerk to get your details included and hopefully keep business local. The directory, once printed will not be revised for another 12 months so its important to get included now. It will be delivered to each house in Willington.
