Please be aware we have had to temporarily close the pedestrian footbridge which links Public Footpath NC11 to Public Bridleway NC53 / cycle track. This is in the Alverstone/ Newchurch area. This is because the structure of the bridge is unsafe.

Need advice on driving safely, for longer? Need advice about an elderly friend or relative's driving? If so, head along to the Older Driver Forum's free event at Newport Minster this Friday and talk to a range of road safety experts. Advice will be available on: • brushing up your skills • booking a driving assessment • arranging a regular eyesight test • getting advice on health and wellbeing issues that could affect driving ability • renewing your licence at 70 • learning about road safety and consequences of not being fit to drive • discover alternatives to being independent without a car Safety is the top priority; it should be the most important thing older drivers consider when there is concern over driving ability. The best advice is don’t wait for an accident or a near miss to convince a driver to stop, instead seek advice, support and help.
