On Sunday 12th June the village of Glanton
paid tribute to HM The Queen by
holding a village tea party to
commemorate her 90th Birthday.  

It was a great success.

Out thanks go to the committee of
the Memorial Hall who organised
and hosted the event.

This new finger post sign
can be seen opposite the
end of Playwell Road.
The existing post has been
repainted and a new finger
has been created.

The project has been carried
out by the Glanton Heritage
Group with support and
funding from the
Parish Council.

Special thanks go to Richard
Verrill and Mike Mason who
did much of the work.

It is hoped that a similar
signpost may be installed
at the junction of Front
Street and West
Turnpike in the future.

New fence at A697

Improvements to the junction with the A697

The Parish Council with the co-operation of the land owner and the farmer have dug up a hedge at the junction of the Oak Avenue with the A697 on the northern side and replaced the hedge with a fence.  This follows a similar operation on the southern side which was done by the owners after various accidents had destroyed the hedge at that point.  The result has been a great improvement in visibility for cars joining the main road from Glanton on what is quite a dangerous junction owing to the fact that cars on the A697 are often overtaking on the straight section of road and hence travelling very fast on the opposite carriageway.  There was a near fatal accident at this point earlier this year, and the PC hopes that this work will make the junction safer for residents and visitors.


Many local residents are now benefitting from the OilCAN community oil buying scheme – if you’ve been hesitating, now would be a good time to jump in & join us, as September is likely to see the lowest price oil this year (subject to international turmoil of course).   Although there’s a small membership cost (£20 for individuals) it is highly likely that your savings on your first order will more than cover this – I saved £50 on my first order, and a Glanton resident was shocked to learn last winter that in the same week as one of the OilCAN deliveries, he had paid the same oil supplier £70 more for his delivery.  Plus the environmental benefits of fewer tanker deliveries, all you have to be is a little bit
organised, and the scheme makes that as easy as possible for you.  For more information ring me on 01665 578222, or OilCAN on 01670 500812, or see
