Events are taking place in Weaverham during November, to mark the Centenary of the Armistice at the end of the First World War. There will be the usual Remembrance Sunday event on the 11th at 2pm at St Mary's Weaverham. A document prepared by Bob Heaton, listing the "Fallen Lads" of Acton Bridge, can be downloaded from here. At 10:45 on Thursday the 15th there is an event at Thorn Wood (between Weaverham and Hartford, near the old railway bridge). You can download a poster about this here.
12. November 2018:
The Interactive Speed Indicating Devices (ISIDs) have been in place for two and a half months now, and the results are encouraging, though not quite as much as might have been hoped. The detailed analysis and summaries for both signs were presented to the Parish Council meeting on Monday 5. November. Following requests from residents, your Editor has carried out further analysis (emphasis on "anal") of the vast amount of data collected by the two signs in the two-and-a-half months following the installation and commissioning. In all, over half a million pieces of data have been collected and downloaded, being the Date and Time, Entry Speed, Average Speed, Exit Speed, Peak Speed, And Vehicle Count for every vehicle detected (95,641 in this period). These data sets have been converted into very large spreadsheets, and sorted to show the speeds which are being logged at the sites, and in particular the proportions of detected vehicles which were logged in various speed bands.

The signs were relocated on 9. November to the posts in Acton Lane and Milton Rough, and once commissioned will be showing speeds and logging data at those entrances to our village. These data and further commentary have been presented on a new page, abo_isid_data.htm and will be updated in the coming months.

August 2018:
Interactive Speed Indicator Displays have been installed in the village, and are already operational. This is the culmination of many years of work, dozens of meetings, three Requests-for-Quotation, 76 pages (yes, really) of compliance forms just to put the poles in; plus hundreds of e-mails, and endless time spent by our Parish Councillors. And not forgetting several thousand pounds from the Parish Precept, plus grants from Cheshire West Borough Councillors and the Police & Crime Commissioner's Office. Well done to all who have helped to make this a reality for our Village and Community. The signs will be rotated from time to time around the four sites - as shown below on Station Road and Hill Top Road, and on Acton Lane and Milton Rough, which already have the poles and solar panels installed.
