Hedges and obstructions on pavements
There have been several complaints about overgrown hedges especially when they obstruct pavements. Highways have been contacted about hedges that fall under the County Council’s responsibility but there are some that are private hedges. If you have a hedge that is causing an obstruction please, if you can, try to address the problem. There have also been a few concerns raised about cars parked on pavements which also cause an obstruction. The Council is aware that in some roads in the parish, parking is difficult but pavements must be kept clear enough for pedestrians, prams and wheelchairs.
Over 84’s Afternoon Tea
The next tea party will be held on Saturday 12th October at 3pm in the Grosvenor Centre. If you are aged 84 or older, live in the parish or if you have a relative or friend that meet the criteria, please get in touch if you do not normally receive an invitation. The volunteers who run these teas try very hard to include everyone who is eligible.
Civic Amenity Visits
The next visit will be on 26th October. This is a facility for parishioners to dispose of their rubbish that will not fit into wheelie bins. The large bin lorry is at the Grosvenor for 1 hour and it is the responsibility of individuals to bring their rubbish during that hour slot and throw it into the refuse vehicle.
Dates for your diary
