New cycleway on Ilam Rd, between Memorial Ave and Aorangi Road.  Traffic Impacts – a one way system will begin on Monday 11 September – traffic will travel northbound (southbound traffic will be detoured) so there will be no access to Ilam Road from the Clyde Road roundabout.  Footpath access around the work site will be maintained.  Access to properties will be maintained – staff are happy to help with access at any time.  Estimated completion is end of December.

Our Sunday Sermon is usually posted to the Village Church website on a Monday.  If you can’t be at Church on a Sunday and would like to read the Sermon, you’ll find it under the ‘Reflections’ heading – go to
