DEATH OF COLIN DENCHFIELD

It is with much sadness that I have to report the death of past Deputy Chairman Colin Denchfield.

Regular members to our meetings  will remember Colin,  a committee member who looked after potholes and pavements for EPAGRA  with enthusiasm and his sense of humour will be sorely missed.

Colin leaves behind  Gloria  his wife , and  children  David and Sally and our thoughts go out to them at this time .

Colin will be sorely missed by all that knew him.

On behalf of EPAGRA thank you Colin for all your work on behalf of local residents .

 

Geoff Lloyd.

MEETINGS CANCELLED FOR THE NEXT 2 MONTHS

Sadly, due to HM Government  advice regarding the Pandemic of COVID-19 ( coronavirus)

in the interests of members health the chairman has decided to cancel the April and Mays   meeting

The situation will be reviewed  later in the year.

On behalf of the committee EPAGRA hopes all members will stay safe and well.

We shall NOT be collecting subscriptions for the year 2020 – 2021 at present so your membership will carry over.

Closure of Hubbards Close from the A127

30 August 2018

 

 

Recently there have been several enquiries from members regarding the closure of Hubbards Close by the installation of a gate where the road joins the A127 by The Moorings Garage.

The main comments  has been ” This gate is blocking a public right of way and can we get it removed?”

In fact for several years , with the assistance of EPAGRA  and local councillor Roger Ramsey , the residents of Hubbards Close have been campaigning to have some form of restriction to stop this road being used as a rat run from the A127.

This have been mad worse by the work being carried out on the Ardleigh Green Bridge  and subsequent traffic congestion . Some mornings there have been over 300 vehicle using the road in less than an hour.

It has been determined that the area of the road that meets with the A127 is private and as such the owner has elected to have a gate fitted.

During my four year term as Chairman the matter was often discussed at our monthly meetings  and , as always, the meetings have been open to members to attend.

The answer to the question therefor is

It is not a public right of way and EPAGRA has no reason to campaign for its removal.
