The town’s well used zebra crossings in The Square are getting their long-awaited new stripes.

Town Councillors celebrating the inauguration of the new Mayor, Councillor John Clark, peered out of the Town Hall windows upon hearing the rucus down below – workers had set up temporary traffic signals and were scraping what remained of the old markings off the road.

Throughout the rest of the night, they begun their work to paint new stripes on the road.
