Kegworth Bypass Signage update

Kegworth Bypass Signage update

Posted: Tue, 20 Nov 2018 12:06 by Alicia

There have been a number of issues regarding HGV lorries still coming through the Village of Kegworth due to lack of signage so we are pleased to report that the contractor has started changing signs beginning with the A453 from Nottingham. More »

Weight restriction signs are being put up around the old A6 splitter island at Junction 24 leading into Kegworth; along with a weight restriction sign as you come off the south bound carriageway of the M1.

They will then continue putting signs up from JNCT 24 south along the A453 towards the new bypass roundabout and then come back North along the A453 from Finger Farm roundabout.

Hopefully, this will help us to regain our Village.

Keep Safe Places

Keep Safe Places

Posted: Mon, 19 Nov 2018 12:37 by Alicia

As the frantic nature of Black Friday and Christmas shopping rapidly approaches, festive shoppers are reminded that "keep safe places" are available in busy retail areas across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. More »

With darker nights now upon us as well, Leicestershire County Council is reminding residents a number of venues are available for anyone who feels overwhelmed, vulnerable, scared or distressed.

Stickers can be seen at the front of "keep safe places" which include libraries and shops that have signed up to the scheme.

Staff of participating Keep Safe Places can offer basic support, including a place to sit down. They can also contact friends or relatives if necessary – or the emergency services if needed.

The initiative was developed by the county council in partnership with the police, city and district / borough councils, local community partnerships and Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland.

Council offices, police stations and libraries also provide Keep Safe cards which show the details of who to contact in an emergency, or medical assistance that may be needed.

Keep Safe Place users also have the option of being referred to First Contact, a multi-agency initiative that checks if people would benefit from a host of services and advice such as getting the right benefits, smoke alarms, help with their finances or support for carers.

To find your nearest Keep Safe Place or find out where to get a Keep Safe Card, look out for a window sticker/poster or visit http://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/find-a-keep-safe-place. » Less
