PARISH COUNCIL NEWS: The new larger waste bin has been delivered to the shops area on Weeland Road. It is a good size and should hold quite a lot of litter. So let’s do it justice and put all our litter in this large, rather posh looking, waste bin rather than dropping it on the floor. The fact that this bin has a lid on it will not only prevent the litter from getting wet and smelly, but will also cut down the risk of litter being blown out of the bin and along our main road area. Perhaps we could do with a few more bins like this around our Parish!
