  1. Hello
    I live on the Leysholmes and wondered if there was any possibility that something could be done about the very dangerous mini roundabout at the bottom of the hill. I use it on a daliy basis and see lots of very near misses. I find it extremley dangerous and dread using it, especially pulling out from Greenhill Lane. In doing so when its clear, drivers coming along Lower Wortley Road, in front of the Ritz chip shop, if they see that Dixon Lane and Oldfield Lane are clear ecelerate onto the rounabout and if your coming off Greenhill Lane exit its very scary to have them coming at you at speed. I have 2 young children in back of the car too. I’m sure I’m not the only person to have concerns about this. Could anything be done about it, traffic lights maybe? I know it would take longer to filter every motorist through but at least it would be safe. Kind regards Mrs Hull

  2. sorry, also meant to say, that motorist coming from Greenhill Lane have a very restricted view. Traffic coming in front of the chip shop cannot be seen until on the roundabout. Thank you.

  3. Regarding the Fish / Duck Pond for Farnely Park Hall. I took my son down to the pond today for the first time and was horrified at the state it is in. It is full of rubbish and in dire need of cleaning. The poor ducks are sat on a bed of weeds rather than water. It is a real shame as it would be a lovely place to walk to in the summer months. Is there any possibility of the pond being cleaned up?
