A556/M6 J19 Closures – Change of dates

Highways England have announced changes of dates for the temporary closure of the A556 in the vicinity of M6 J19.

They are closing the M6 in both directions within Junction 19 for two full weekends on 22-25 January and 29 January–1 February.  They expect long delays.

They ask you to note that the full weekend closure previously planned for 15-18 January will no longer go ahead. This is due to the recent cold weather affecting concrete curing times for the bridge walls.

Welcome to Pickmere Parish Council’s new website!

The Parish Council has a new website! The Council had to replace the current site to comply with recent Government regulations. We hope the new site is more attractive and usable than the old one (and will be easier to use on mobile devices), and it will be simpler to maintain and enhance. Much of the content of the old site has been transferred over, and we hope to add new content as time goes by.

Have a look around, and let us have any comments by using the Contact us page.

New website

The Parish Council decided earlier this summer to replace its website.  This new site is operational but is still under development.  Various elements still have to be added, for instance the archive of Parish Council documents, and more information on the various community organisations in Pickmere.

Any enquiries about the site should be referred to the Parish Clerk whose contact details are on the Home Page.
