Gigaclear Works Update 4 Jul 20

"Church Lane in Cold Higham is now complete there is however some tarmac reinstatement to take place which will be done early next week, but the village is mainly complete now.

We are also looking to get back onto Mill Lane and Penthorne close from the 13th July providing NCC highways allow us the road space this shouldn't be an issue, but I will let you know again once I have a confirmed date."
