Sherborne Chamber of Trade and Commerce

The Executive Committee of the Chamber met with David Clegg, Site Agent who is managing the road closure for Dorset highways. He has explained how the road closure and diversion will affect the town and what Dorset highways will put in place to assist the town and the local Schools. The road closure will take place from 31 May to 24 June 2016 inclusive. The purpose is to allow essential repairs to the Culvert which upon inspection is found to be crumbling away and in real danger of collapse. At the same time as the repairs are being carried out the Utility Companies will be completing outstanding works to include the railings along the pavement which will be replaced and painted. The road will also be resurfaced.

There will be a diversion in place around the down and parking restrictions will be put in place to assist the flow of traffic during the road closure and planned works. Traffic signals will be erected on the junction of the A352/B3145 and the A30/B3145 to make it easier for larger vehicles to turn safely. The timings of these signals will be altered during peak flows (for example around the school working day) to facilitate the movement of school/public transport. The diversion if followed will signpost the town centre car parks.

The town is open for business as usual and the town will be celebrating the Queens Day Celebration Pageant on 18 June 2016. We would like all members to continue to publicise on social media and their websites that Sherborne is still accessible during this period (to minimise any potential impact the road closure may have) and that we continue to welcome visitors to the town.

Further details can be found on the Dorset Highways Website.

You find yourself here in this world with feelings and thoughts. It’s difficult to accept what you find you do. But if you can it seems to help.’ – Martin Creed

The exhibition will have everything in it: it will present a new body of work that includes paintings, films, drawings, sculpture, music, spoken word and performance, many of which will be created in-situ throughout the five gallery spaces. Creed’s all-encompassing approach blurs the distinction between art and life, the introspective and the extrovert.
