Pump Track – Mention was made at the recent Parish Council meeting of a couple of accidents recently at the pump track.  It was also commented  that there are some bikers  seen not wearing helmets, which was regarded by the Councillors as a very serious matter, particularly since some involved were adults. If bikers persist in not conforming with the current requirement to always wear a helmet on the track,  closure of the track would be considered by the Parish Council.
