Points of View

Comments from Landkey residents on matters of relevance to the village are shown here. If you have a matter that you would like to comment on, please feel free to submit it on the "Your Point of View" page.

From Deb Kelly on 29th December 2014:
I grew up in Landkey and am interested in its history, particularly the buildings. There was an old shop front along Blakes Hill Road (the property known as Dimora) that has recently been converted to 2 houses, not far from the current post office. Does anyone know what this shop once was?
Charles Waldron (Designer) sent this reply on 5th January 2015:
Ken Snell has posted this comment on the Points of View page in respect of your enquiry: "I think the converted shops used to be a co-op".
From Anita Murch on 15th December 2014:
Sadly the luncheon club has recently had to fold up after many successful years.I feel this might leave older people feeling isolated in their homes.If there was sufficient interest[and offers of help],I would be happy to try and set up a regular date once a month to hold a two hour session to include soup,roll and butter,tea or coffee,chat,and craft ,cards, scrabble,dominoes ,raffle etc.Perhaps an occasional speaker and a trip out once a year.Anyone interested ,can contact me either by email anita_murch@yahoo.co.uk or by phone 01271 831400.Anita Murch.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is what that the website is here to do, try and solve issues and bring our village together.
If there is anyone out there who feels they could spare a few hours to get involved and carry on a much needed facility within the village then please do get in touch with Anita. I will also add it to the agenda for the next Parish Council meeting. This will be on 7th January at the Old School Centre from 7.30pm.
Sadly, it is all too common for older people to feel isolated when they cannot just get up and go out for a stroll, and need to rely on others to assist them with things that we just take for granted. We need to look after each other.

From Betty Antell on 6th July 2014:
Could something be done about the visibility at the end of Tanners Road, and the South Hayes junction, on to the main road. At the moment its an accident waiting to happen - why not just cut the foilage right back with a strimmer or something similar.
From Vicky Bryan on 14th June 2014:
I cannot believe my eyes, This morning sadly someone lost their life on the Link road and two others were seriously injured and the road has been closed eversinse, So all the traffic is coming through the village, and some absolute idiots are absolutely charging through the village, I am absolutely fuming do they not know it is 30 miles per hour through the village. Get their number, they are going too blinking fast to get their number.
From Vicky Bryan on 7th May 2014:
Would like to add to the complaint about the speeding cars and motorbikes through the village, have just been stood in my garden and a motorbike raced up the road, even though there is a crossing and the children are walking home from school. This happens on a daily basis.

We were told years ago when the crossing was proposed that this would slow vehicles down, no chance, some don't even stop when you are stood waiting to cross the road. In fact I have even had people put their hands up and wave as they merrily drive through on the wrong side of the road.

So now we have a crossing and chicane designed to slow people down and neither works, last weekend whilst walking down to the shop I saw one car overtake another on the crossing.

Do we have to wait until someone, probably a child or elderly person get seriously hurt before something is done.
Emma Marshall (Councillor) sent this reply on 8th May 2014:
Glyn Lane, the Chair has asked if you would be able to take any vehicles registration number if possible and we can then on to the police.
The same thing has happened to me, but I dont always get the registration as they are going so fast.
I hope this works please let me know.
