Collection days for your general waste, dry recycling, garden, textiles and food waste over the Christmas and New Year period for 2015/16.
Things to remember
– Leave your rubbish out for collection by 6am on the revised collection day.
– Leave your rubbish near your front gate, but not on the pavement.
– Place your food bin with your garden waste at your property boundary for collection.
– Leave the textile recycling (purple sack) tied up ready with your other dry recycling.
– To avoid refuse sacks being split open by animals we recommend the use of regular domestic dustbins (not wheeled bins)
If you have any queries please call the council’s contact centre on 01895 556000.
Recycle your Christmas tree
Christmas trees can be recycled for free as part of the weekly garden waste collection service. Cut into pieces of less than three feet.
Gearing up for the annual village Christmas events now!
Monday 1st December, 3:30pm, set up from 2:30pm, Sipson Road, beside Zayani restaurant/ opposite the Post Office
Once again Heathrow Primary School Choir will be singing carols, Cherry Lane Children’s Centre will be running Christmas decoration making, and volunteers will be running a raffle and serving drinks and snacks for our annual Christmas gathering in the village. It has been very cheering to find these groups have all contacted me this year to confirm the event is happening and get organised -all our hard work in getting the events going in previous years has paid off, and we have created some firm shared village traditions that I believe can and very much hope will continue into the future.
Following last year’s very sad theft of the village Christmas tree, we have taken a different tack and planted a lovely cherry tree to call our village tree. It is still young, but doing well, and in years to come we hope to display lights on that to mark the season. This year, as the tree is still a bit small to decorate, we will use the surrounding trees on the green to ensure we can enjoy our usual count down to Light the Lights!
The poster is attached, please tell all your friends and family, do come along and join us, and if you can spare the time, we’d appreciate help with setting up the gazebos, serving drinks, and selling raffle tickets on the day – all help welcome! We also would like to display posters in the village, so if you can do so, please pop into Hair By Jackie’s from this Thursday to collect one or more.
In previous years this event has had a brilliant turn out from across the community, I’m hoping this year will be no exception!
