Save Our Tip…….

The County Council is consulting on the potential closure of three or four of the existing seven Household Waste Recycling Centres, including the one at Oakley Wood. The proposal for our area is to close Oakley wood and “beef up” Drayton.

I think this is a very poor idea and a number of people have already been in touch with me voicing the same opinion. Surely the amount of fly tipping will increase and the rate of recycling – long a treasured policy in the county – will reduce as people have no option other than to put recyclable waste in their black bins.

If you would like to comment on the proposals, please visit where you will find the consultation document.


Fun Day Update

The Fun Day planned for Friday 14th August is still on, but the weather may curtail some of the activities.
On offer should be the story telling tent, live music, a free barbeque, bouncy castle, face painting and the games zone.
Events will run from 10am to 4pm and in the time honoured phrase, “if wet, in the village hall”!
