Highway maintenance in Knowle, Braunton
Braunton Parish Council recently took part in a ‘Tidy-Up community day’ in Knowle, which included flail cutting along the pavement into Knowle and the installation of a ‘Welcome to Knowle’ sign – all with the help of the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund.
The project engaged the local community providing an opportunity for the Parish Council to continue to build and strengthen a community self-help group within Knowle. Making the entrance to the village welcoming is also very important to local businesses as it encourages tourism, which is a key industry in this area.
