June 2018:The traffic mitigation works are ongoing and regular updates can be found on our website at http://www.bartonparishcouncil.org.uk/better-safer-barton-updates. We also have exhibitions in the Village Hall foyer, the Library and Holland Sports Club. Updates are also displayed on all our noticeboards. By the time you read this we hope work will have progressed well although July will see some weekend road closures.
It was with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Robert Spurrier who was bailiff at the Fish Pond for many years. He made a significant contribution to developing the site which is recognised as a great spot for fishing and recently was chosen by the Angling Trust to be the West Midlands flagship location for World Fishing Day which took place on 23rd June.
If you would be interested in being bailiff, please contact the Parish Office.
