CRESSAGE BRIDGE - I thought people may be wondering what’s happening with the bridge as I have had a person ask. The situation is that when SC went to repair a pothole on the footway they found a void underneath. They have asked engineers to take a look and assess. In the meantime, the bridge is under lights. There may be a need to close the bridge completely but will know more when SC have investigated.  As yet there is no timescale for repairs. The parish council will keep on pursuing this and update when more is known
