Ruddington Resurfacing To Resume

Residents and businesses along Camelot Street, Woodhouse Gardens, Marl Close and the Brookside Road estate can breathe a sigh of relief at the news their sole access road will only be left ‘in limbo’ for a couple of weeks – after resurfacing work was suddenly and rather dramatically suspended last Saturday. Just hours into the long awaited scheme on Camelot Street, all road workers were pulled off the site “until further notice” with Shaun​ Faulkner of contractors Tarmac Highway Services, blaming a “lack of cooperation and abusive comments from the residents on…

Ruddington Resurfacing Suspended After Workers ‘Abused’

Just hours after the long awaited resurfacing work began on Camelot Street this morning, contractors called a halt and went home – citing dangerous behaviour and abuse from some motorists.

Team Artex Rally Last Minute Support

A Ruddington based business, perhaps best known for its swirly ceilings, will be expecting a great finish with its latest fundraiser! This week, a team of four from home improvement giant Artex on Pasture Lane take part in the Vado Rally – driving a “banger” from Dover to Copenhagen over five days. These include National Accounts Manager Amy Smith and Tony Wright (pictured top). The banger in question is a 13 year old Renault Scenic 1.4 – which they had to buy for under £500 to qualify. Not only that, all participants have…
