I was awoken yesterday by the news that the A1 was part-closed due to an accident in vicinity of the Lobley Hill Roundabout. It set me wondering about what really ought to put Lobley Hill on the Map? Do we want to be known purely for the ribbon of tarmac that runs through the heart of the community? A number of people suggested thoughts of what we might do but first I thought it would be good list what goes on around here currently.
