Footpath Cleared

With many thanks to our friends at Cotswold National Landscape for their help,  the very overgrown footpath that runs parallel to the Upper Town House boundary has now been cleared.  Their team of enthusiastic volunteer wardens worked diligently among the brambles and nettles to clear the path and even helped shore up the steps at the entrance.  Thank you Stephen, Mike and all the team!

May Parish Council Meeting – Date Change

The Government has recently ruled that local councils in England must resume holding their meetings on a face to face basis from 7th May onwards. This means that we cannot hold our May meeting using Zoom as we had originally planned and the meeting will therefore need to be held “face to face”.

However, because the next stage of relaxing the Covid restrictions do not come into force until the 17th May, and with the safety and wellbeing of councillors and public alike, we are moving our meeting to the week following the relaxation of restrictions.

Consequently, the May Parish Council Meeting will be held in the village hall on Monday 24th May at 7.30 pm.

Gloucestershire’s recycling centres set to move to summer hours

Gloucestershire County Council recycling centres are currently experiencing high levels of demand.  To help meet the increased demand, summer opening hours will come into effect from Sunday 21st March instead of Sunday 28th March. They will be open from 9am to 5pm, instead of the shorter winter hours of 10am to 4pm.

Visitors to all household recycling centres need to pre-book their visit. Social distancing is required on site and to minimise queues and waiting times the number of booking slots available is limited.  Residents are asked to please keep to their appointment times to help to reduce queues.

Those with symptoms of COVID-19 or who are self-isolating must not visit and should stay at home, following the most up to date government and NHS advice.
