After years of residents forging their own path from Balmerino in Monkston over to Middleton and Broughton, a proper footpath will finally be created.
Cllr Jenni Ferrans says “The Focus team have been campaigning for this path for years, but we got nowhere with the developers. Now at last the land is in the hands of the Parish Council and they have agreed.”
Kents Hill and Monkston Parish Council has decided to surface the footpath down the side of the allotments. And they’ve finally got permission from the Parks Trust to extend the extra few metres over Parks Trust land to meet up with the redway going to Middleton and Broughton.

Vanessa McPake checks the reliability of the buses after lots of complaints
Ever since the Conservative run MK Council cut the bus subsidy by nearly £1/2 million, your local Lib Dem team has been concerned about the quality of the service.
Bus user, Vanessa McPake, has been keeping an eye on the bus changes in our area since the new timetable came into force. She has been contacted by residents about the nos. 8 & 9 services not running on time.
Do tell Vanessa by providing: the date location of bus stop time the bus was supposed to arrive time it did arrive.
She will then take up the problems with Arriva who run these services
Why is there no footpath along the V10 so that kids from Walton Grange can get to their schools in Walnut Tree safely?
Vanessa McPake had plans drawn up to take action but the Tories took control of the Council and dumped them. The Lib Dems will continue to campaign for a footpath to make it safer for all.
Vanessa McPake helped residents at Kingston as the Tory run Council put up the wrong timetables when they cut bus services recently! She got them fixed. The cuts and the new bus times are hurting lots of residents in our area. Lib Dems want to reinstate your lost services.
Vanessa McPake checks that the right timetable has at last been put up at Kingston.
Subhan Shafiq has asked the Council to cut back the bushes on the V10 as drivers coming out of Dunchurch Dale, Walnut Tree have their vision blocked by the bushes on the left.

The Conservative council has refused ALL the proposals to improve parking made by the Parish Council recently. Now we need your help.
Cllr Jenni Ferrans on the bend in Lindisfarne Drive, Monkston
On Monkston, almost all residents supported the proposal for double yellow lines on the inside of the bends on Lindisfarne Drive, so now we want you to send us your experiences of the problems there, so that we can make clear to MK Council how bad it is.

Remember, the 11/12 Sunday service has been cut and so have some evening services on the 9. All thanks to the Tories cutting nearly £1/2 million from our bus services. Only the Lib Dems objected to these cuts. We put forward an amendment, but both Labour and the Tories voted it down!
Street Signs that have received attention after Focus Team action on Walnut Tree recently
Residents are proud of our area – but it’s not helped by illegible and damaged street signs making it hard for people to find their way around! Recent action by the Focus team includes:
- Cllr Subhan Shafiq had to chase the Tory council for two months to get the sign in Hindhead Knoll repaired
- Vaness McPake has had bushes cut back so that the sign on Groundsel Close is visible again
- Cllr Jenni Ferrans has reported the damaged sign in Tatling Grove – about to fall over!
- Vanessa McPake has asked for the worn lettering to be replaced on the sign on Juniper Gardens
