Celebrate! Update

What’s been going on since the end of March Public Meeting?

Here’s a quick update on progress since we held our public meeting at Romsey Mill:

We’ve got volunteers working on both Arts and Music themes, and we’ve had a couple of meetings with County Council Officers re highways issues.  There’s some good news and bad news re Highways:

  • Good news: we’re working with CCC Highways to get permission to shut a short stretch of Mill Road near the Bridge to all traffic each weekend, giving us an outdoor venue for events, not a done deal yet but we’re persisting 🙂
  • Good news: Stagecoach will be running a shuttle service to and from the bridge on both sides
  • Bad news: there’s a gas utility that wants to take the opportunity of Mill Rd being quiet to replace the gas main over the entire length of Mill Road, a project that may take up the whole period of the closure.  We’re awaiting a meeting with them.  We’re going to tell them we want a rolling program which will allow us to continue with events and activities for most of the closure period

We’re also meeting with Govia Thameslink again shortly and will give you an update with anything of interest which comes out of that.

Meantime please contact us if you can offer us any time, whether a little or a lot.   Celebrate! can only be a success with your help.
