MVAS Speed Sign - First report

The MVAS speed sign organised by your Parish Council was positioned in Moat Lane between 31st January 2016 to 20th March 2016. It looked first at traffic approaching the village and then at traffic leaving the village. It counts the total number of vehicles approaching the sign and flashes up the speed limit if they are exceeding 35 mph. Just over 15% of vehicles were recorded as exceeding 35 mph.

A brief report summarising the initial results has been compiled and this may be read or downloaded by clicking here.

The sign is being shared with Cheddington. At the moment it has been relocated in Wingrave Road, after which it will probably return to Cheddington for a while.

This sign produces valuable statistical information. It will be augmented soon by a Speed Watch operated by village volunteers that will record more precise information, including video-recording and logging the registrations of speeders.

Aston Abbotts Village Hall news – April 2016

Grant from Community Chest!

We’re delighted to say that we’ve been offered £14,000 from the Community Chest, a grants scheme for community projects run jointly by AVDC and VAHT (Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust). This is payable when our major funding application is confirmed (we’re hoping this will be end April).

The village hall trust’s annual general meeting – Tuesday 19 April, 8pm, Village Hall

The village hall trust’s AGM is on Tuesday 19 April.  Janet Blake, Council Member for Stewkley and Community Chest Grants Panel Member, will be joining us as a funder representative. Village residents are also very welcome. It will be a short meeting – chairman’s summary of what we’ve done over the last year, the treasurer’s report, election of officers (chair, treasurer, secretary) and 10 minutes for taking questions from the public.

If you can’t make 19 April, we’ll also be attending the Annual Parish Meeting on 13 April, so come along then if you want to hear a quick update from us and other village groups.
