Did you paint any rocks during lockdown? Do you still have them?
The Parish Council are considering a project to bring the stones together to create a memorial in the centre of the village. If you are happy for them to be used in this project, please keep your stones and get in touch to let us know how many you have so we can see what we can create with them!
Please email us on email@example.com or call on 01892-823193.

TWBC are not yet in a position to re-commence garden waste collections due to staff shortages. They want to assure residents that they will restart the service when resources allow them to do so. At the moment garden waste collections are suspended as the staff have been re-deployed to keep the core services running i.e. food waste, household waste and recycling collections.
TWBC will advise a start date as soon as they can.
In the meantime why not think about home composting. More details on this can be found on the Recycle Now and many other websites.
