Lansdown Crescent Association Noticeboard
*Would you like to help this website to represent our Association, our community, and local activities in a positive and useful way?*(26 May 2018)
Do you enjoy editing and formatting information to produce an attractive result?
Do you perhaps have publishing, blogging, or social media experience? Or can you spot a typo, inconsistency, or grammatical error at 100 yards?
The LCA has a Content Team of committee members who are responsible for finding and posting the majority of website articles. We are now looking for a Website Editor (not necessarily on the committee) to take overall responsibility for the appearance and general usefulness of the LCA website.
Want to know more? Please contact the Membership Secretary in the first instance.
Earlier today a concrete delivery truck spilled a huge load of concrete on the turn of Sion hill into Cavendish Road, just outside Doric House, a historically significant house. The driver of the truck left the scene and left a hazard as cars were skidding in the spillage. The Council have responded very quickly as members of our association called their emergency service. A thirteen person crew arrived to clear up the mess left by the irresponsible driver. This highlights the need for the width restriction which will be introduced in the coming months, as it will enable us to seek enforcement to stop HGVs and coaches using the Crescent as a rat run and causing damage at this junction.
