The Parish Council was pleased to accept two free bee markings from local resident Mike Jarvie. Mr Jarvie works for a playground marking company who has provided the Bee road markings for other local authorities including Manchester. Following the attack at the Manchester Arena, the Bee became the symbol of unity and solidarity and Holmes Chapel has a close connection to this tragedy. Subject to traffic over the sign, they should last 7-10 years.
The Parish Council discussed two suitable locations and agreed that the sensory garden and entrance to the community centre were the most appropriate places for the markings. We are going to consider costings and possible locations for future markings.
