The Blacksnape Community Group was formed around 2006 to campaign for road safety measures on the Roman Road
We were sucessful in that we managed to get a speed sensitive sign at the Red Lion, and a mini roundabout at the junction with Marsh House Lane.
In addition we held a carol concert at the Red Lion (which we hope to repeat) and led a walking party to the Strawbury Duck.
It is hoped the website will encourage further communtiy activities in the village.
Some suggestions for future activities:
Social: Barbecue, carol concert , other
Campaigns: Review road safety measures- follow up? Britain in Bloom; Amenities at Blacksnape Playing Fields; acquisition of grants; maintenance of drystone walls.
Community: History society; produce exchange; police / local authority iaison
Other suggestions welcome.
