Middleton Parish Council – November Report; Middleton Remembers, Street Lighting, Bus Service Worries, Former Chairman Resigns

Following the Remembrance Service and the dedication of the Middleton Memorial centre stone, the Parish Council met on Monday 12th November. At a shorter meeting than usual, History Researcher Lucy Godfrey gave a report on her work into those connected with the Middleton who had fallen in World War One, and the next stages of the project.

Concerns have been raised that the 6.1 bus service in the village may be in jeopardy due to inconsiderately parked vehicles making it more and more difficult for the buses to get up and down Main Street. The issue of parking will be an item on the agenda of the December meeting of the Parish Council. Let us have your views.

Derbyshire County Council continues to refuse to switch several streetlights back on between Middleton and Wirksworth. The Parish Council remains concerned that this walk to school route is inadequately lit during the dark mornings and evenings of autumn and winter.

The siting of the Middleton Memorial on the Village Green was approved. Prices for the work are being sought.

Following the meeting the resignation of former Chairman Cllr Sandy Clark was received. The Parish Council would like to thank him for his work on behalf of the parish.
