Streetlamps

Please report any faulty street lamps to lightsout@woodfordpc.co.uk. Woodford Parish Council owns all of the lamps in the village and repairs can only take place if we know about the fault and authorise the repair. Once the Parish Clerk is aware of the fault the contractor will normally repair the lamp in about a week. All you need to report is the lamp number (if known), or the location/address. Please don't assume someone else has reported the fault. We'd rather have two reports than none.

Potholes

Potholes, dangerous pavements and blocked drains/gullies within the village and all approach roads are handled by Street Doctor.

This County Council service can be reached on the County Council Website.

Weather in March 2018

The average temperature for March was 5C which is 1.5C under the normal average for the month compared to last March which was 2.5C above the average. The average overnight minimum was 2C and the average daytime maximum was 9C. There were 13 night frosts against a norm of just 8. By the end of March only 33 days this year had reached 10C compared to an average of number of 37 days. On 1st March the maximum temperature was minus 2C making it the coldest March day of the century. There were five days with laying snow (more than 50% coverage) which is the most for at least 10 years.

Precipitation totalled 66mm which is about 50% more than normal, making it the wettest March since 2016. There were 9 wet days which is less than the normal 12.

The total rainfall for the first three months of 2018 was 142mm which is just 7mm more than the 30 year average. The average temperature (January - March) was 4.7C (average 5.2C), and there were 39 air frosts compared to the average of 29 during the first three months of the year. So slightly colder than normal due to February conditions.

Rainfall for the six months to 31st March totalled 247mm, much drier than the average 299mm.

The twelve month rainfall amount to the end of March is 551mm compared to the annual long term average of 600mm. This low total is due to the dry conditions which prevailed in October and November last year

Think Before You Park Scheme

Vehicles parked in Woodford that are either causing obstructions to pedestrians or other motorists, or those parked on double yellow lines are to be monitored by Woodford Parish Council and reported to Northamptonshire Police, in a joint scheme now being implemented in a number of villages. In particular the offences causing concern are highlighted in the Highway Code.

Any such vehicles will be photographed and details will be forwarded to the Police. The motorists attention will be drawn to the fact by a yellow/orange coloured card placed on the windscreen. The Council is limited evidence gathering only.

The Police will decide how the matter is to be followed up: e.g. a warning letter, perhaps a visit from Police for repeat offenders etc.

If you need to contact the local Police regarding this scheme the email address is
