Help Needed to Keep the Parish Clean

Home » Newsroom » Help Needed to Keep the Parish Clean

Many will be aware that the two main open areas managed by the Parish Council — the King George V Playing Field and the Millennium Garden — are regularly cleared of litter by Peter Crabbe, who is employed by the Parish Council on a part-time basis. Peter has undertaken this vital role with great regularity and to a high standard over many years.

Unfortunately at the moment Peter is unwell and the Parish Council is asking those who use these areas to be particularly vigilant about taking all litter home or depositing it in the bins. If residents come across litter and it is safe and practical to do so, it would be helpful if they could remove it themselves to the nearest bin. The Parish Council is aware that some rubbish is just too messy to be dealt with without gloves, in which case residents should contact the Parish Clerk on 01829 741075 who will arrange for the rubbish to be dealt with. Individual councillors have also agreed to do some extra rubbish patrols until Mr Crabbe returns.

Litter is one of the scourges of modern life when the actions of a few can seriously impinge on the enjoyment of the many. Please be extra careful so that our public spaces can be safely enjoyed by all.

Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them?

Well after a long day working at the hairdressers on Saturday a Sri Lankan takeaway from the Manor house (previously known as Jessops) was just what I needed, and it was delicious. Not knowing much about the cuisine and had never previously eaten any I was intrigued to give it a try. It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...
