You may have noticed that the Speed Indicator signs have now been installed in Stramshall.
The Staffordshire Police Commissioners Grant provided a grant so that the Parish Council could purchase these signs for the village and working with Staffordshire County Council Highways the signs were purchased from Morelock Signs. www.morelock.co.uk
I hope that everyone agrees they will be a visual reminder to drivers to keep to the 30 mph speed limit within Stramshall and the Council is very grateful to the Police Commissioner, Staffordshire County Council and Morelock Signs for their help in ensuring this project has been successful.
NOTICE is hereby given that the Staffordshire County Council on 18 February 2020 made an Order the effect of which will be to prohibit any vehicle from proceeding in that length of B5027 Stone Road in Bramshall in so much as passes by and is in the vicinity of the level crossing for a distance of 25 metres either side unless the vehicle is being used in connection with the works.

We have been asked to pass on the following information from Staffordshire County Council.
The Staffordshire Warmer Homes initiative is due to launch in East Staffordshire next week. The initiative aims to install fully funded first time central heating systems into eligible homes across Staffordshire.
I hope you can help promote the scheme in your local area with residents.
The Staffordshire Warmer Homes initiative is funded by the £150m Warm Homes Fund, which has been established by National Grid to support local authorities to address some of the issues affecting fuel poor households.
We, Staffordshire County Council, are working in partnership with E.ON and East Staffordshire Borough Council to run this initiative in your area. We are also encouraging the local police, fire and health services to make referrals into the scheme.
We have identified a number of households across East Staffordshire that could be eligible to get fully funded central heating installed in their home and we are sending letters out to all of these homes in the coming weeks.
Residents can apply for this scheme if they do not already have gas central heating, claim benefits or tax credits, have low or no income, are disabled, elderly or have very young children.
