Re: Panshanger

Couple of days ago, I visited the west end of Panshanger. The lorries have gone, and there are new bridlepaths and tracks appearing. But it's a work in progress and hard work without a full suspension, electric mountain bike. And it's not hard to get a bit lost and end up on the wrong side of a fenc...

Is anything happening?

We've got local elections in under a week's time. And EU elections in under 4 weeks.

Ware Road

The parking, traffic and speed in Ware Road is hurting people. Especially between the A10 Viaduct and the Stanstead Road mini roundabout. Last week there was yet another accident requiring an Air Ambulance. What is to be done? https://www.facebook.com/kingsmeadresidentsactiongroup/posts/125945996423...
