NEWSLETTER SPRING 2019
Another winter is now behind us and the only 'B' word I will mention is bluebells! What a joy it is to see the spring flowers brightening up our locality together with all the fresh green leaves.
The winter months have been kind to us and as a result our roads have not been subjected to too many days of freezing conditions and/or snow covering and the damage to the surface has not been as bad as in previous years. Despite this, we do have a few issues with our roads and these will be discussed at our forthcoming AGM to be held in the Memorial Hall on Friday the 7th June at 8.00pm and we very much look forward to seeing you there. The formal Notice of the AGM and Agenda is included on the reverse of this letter.
We continue to receive complaints regarding parking on the roads and repeat our request that wherever possible, could all residents and their visitors please park their vehicles within their property and not on the roads. It is appreciated that this is not always possible, but could we ask you that if you have to park in the road, can you please take care where you park and avoid parking opposite or across neighbours' driveways and/or close to junctions. Despite the new signs we erected, we know that some of the parking continues to be by people who are not actually visiting Badgers Mount; this is difficult to police, but we have received several suggestions on how to overcome this and these are being considered.
The Road Fund's financial year for 2018 ended on the 31st December and I'm sad to report that we have more than 30 properties who have not contributed. Non-payment is detrimental to the Fund's ability to maintain the roads in good order and is very unfair on those who do pay. Without the residents' support and financial contributions the roads will fall into disrepair and this will make our ease of travel more difficult, whether it be by car or on foot and, of course, property values will be affected. Therefore, could I please request that all residents who have not paid their contribution for 2018 do so as soon as possible. Thank you.

Road Fund History
Early in the 1960s, following the building of some houses and bungalows in Highland Road, a few residents held a meeting to discuss the possibility of funding a scheme to lay a surface to Highland Road. The road then was nothing more than a cart track of flints and large pot holes. Footwear during the winter months was definitely gumboots with thick soles!
The meeting successfully raised a sum of money to make a start on filling pot holes with tarmacadam. Under the name Highland Association, the group called upon all residents in the road to contribute into a fund so that more work could be carried out in successive years.
However, after the worst section of Highland Road had
been treated (in 1965), residents in Milton Avenue and Badgers Road were
impressed and following a meeting of all residents of the three roads, the
Badgers Mount Road Maintenance Fund was born. Johnsons Avenue joined the
fund on the 1st January 1988.
The Badgers Mount Road Maintenance Fund and the Residents' Association are separate bodies.
