Work to install the new water main in Epperstone is progressing well. Towards the end of January (W/C 22 Jan) we’ll need to move out of the field to install some connections and valves on Gonalston Lane.

Unfortunately to do this safely we’ll need to close Gonalston Lane, close to the village hall to through traffic for about 4 weeks – access will be maintained to properties and the village hall during this phase of work and traffic will be diverted along Lowdham Road.

Thank you once again for your patience while we carry out this work.
