Today I was out and about in Eythorne with my team door knocking and chatting to people about issues of concern. One clear issue was the problem with lorries rumbling through the village (not quite as bad as this picture, left, that I found floating about on the internet but you get the idea). These lorries are going too and from an important local business that employs lots of people.
There is a quicker route for the lorries to go down the A256 that does not involve annoying everyone in Eythorne. It's likely to be a problem with the SatNavs (the blessing and curse of modern driving!) directing the lorries through the village. So I am taking the issue up with the local employer to see what steps can be taken to deal with the problem.
For anyone interested in excellent village pubs . . . Eythorne has one! The Crown Inn in Eythorne, pictured, serves really great food and beer. Well worth a visit.
