  • I have just driven out the village and was incensed to see that the " Unsuitable for HGVS" sign had been pushed over, face down in the grass and a pseudo-official looking sign directing traffic to Mickleton and Quinton has been erected! I can only assume that both acts have been done by someone with vested interests in assisting traffic to get to those locations. Who would that be? I would definitely say that it is housebuilding firms whose large HGVS full of building materials have been struggling to find a way to their building sites at those locations! Their interests are in direct opposition to our own. I am fuming!!! I put the HGV sign back up. The other one needs knocking down if it is indeed unofficial.
