The bean counters down at the Old Cock and Bull
aka Aughton Parish Council, might be in need of therapy when they realise what a dent they have put in the Parish cash reserves.
The July Agenda states, under Finance, “Solar Powered Speed Awareness Signs Project (Bold Lane (1), Prescot Road (1), Long Lane (2)): i) to receive and approve the recommendations of the Working Group in full consultation with Lancashire County Council Highways ii) to authorise payment to purchase (Part I).
The amount to be spent? Circa £16,000
Anti-speeding campaigners in the parish will be delighted, especially residents of “Wacky races” Long Lane.
