Have Your Say on ‘A Right Good Yarn’

We’re being invited to share our views on the Framework Knitters’ Museum expansion proposals – for a chance to win £100.

It’s emerged that work to build Ruddington’s new roundabout was halted just days before it was due to begin because of a failure to consult properly with affected properties. Construction was due to start today (Tuesday 26th July) at the Wilford Road/Clifton Road junction and should have been completed by the end of August. However Nottinghamshire County Council has now belatedly issued a consultation document to explain its proposals to “ensure the safe operation of the junction”.  These include new double yellow lines in front of the Victoria Tavern Inn and adjacent houses on Wilford Road…
