We’re still open!

We’re still open and ready for business!

.

These were the words from Trish and Pat, who run the Post Office and Teashop. Despite the partial closure, businesses and other venues are open and accessible and interested parties should not be put off by the, possibly, ambiguous signage.

This is the second time in as many months that Queen Street has had to be closed to through traffic. In April, it was a gas main being installed and in May it’s a wall being rebuilt. (For more details on the whys and wherefores of the rebuilding of the wall, see our News post of 5 March – Tree Fellers at it again!)

.

It should be made plain that Queen Street is only closed to THROUGH traffic and access to the Post Office, the Teashop, Askew’s Hairdressers, the Chapel, the Recreation Field, the Tennis Club, the Bowls Club, the Cricket ground and the Village Hall, are all accessible by vehicle via West Street and Bridge Street (and if you are a visitor to Geddington), either over the bridge or through the ford to Queen Street.

.

Pedestrian access is still available for most residents, as can be seen in this image of a dog walker using the footway past the construction barriers.

However, given good weather, perhaps the work can be done in under the 10 weeks that’s advertised!
