Reminder to road users - speed limits

Plea to drivers during coronavirus outbreak:

Roads are quieter - the speed limit is the same - that’s the message from the county council’s road safety team.

With reduced traffic during the coronavirus outbreak, Sussex Police contacted the West Sussex Road Safety team to say some drivers had been tempted to drive too fast.

Roger Elkins, county council Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said: “As well as being against the law, speeding at any time involves unnecessary risks. “During the coronavirus outbreak, emergency services and the NHS are facing immense pressure – being tempted to speed now risks additional strain on services if there’s an accident.

“We urge all road users to follow Government guidance during the outbreak and stay at home: only travel if absolutely necessary. But if you do have to travel, always drive, or ride, within the speed limit and at a speed appropriate to road conditions at the time.”

Anyone witnessing anti-social driving is asked to report it via:

Skate Park Update

The Council very much understands that children may be bored now they are not in school. However, keeping in mind the number of "sightings" of children playing at the King George V skate park and the level of graffiti reported by the Open Space Warden this week it is obvious that the sign "The Skate park is closed" is ignored.

The Council asks for parents to ensure their children do not access play facilities. It is for the health and safety of all parishioners (and secondary, removing the graffiti is going to affect the council's budget adversely) .

Thank you for your co-operation.

On behalf of Rudgwick Parish Council,

Jonna Foote, Clerk

Waste from households with possible cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), or from cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths and tissues), should be dealt with as follows:

  • Place all waste in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it when full.
  • The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.
  • The bag should be put in a suitable and secure place, away from children, for 72 hours

Please do not put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.
