Food & garden waste collection RESUMES !

Food and garden waste collections to resume on 11 May

Weekly collections of food waste and fortnightly collections of garden waste (for paid subscribers) will resume on Monday 11 May, following their suspension on 30 March.

The services were suspended as a result of staffing shortages due to the coronavirus pandemic and the need to prioritise collection of recycling and refuse collections.

From 11 May, you should place your food caddy out for collection on the usual collection day. Brown garden waste bins will be collected on the same week as recycling collections as previously.

Unfortunately extra garden waste will not be collected if placed next to brown bins – it must all be contained within the brown bin.

NHDC will contact garden waste subscribers once a decision has been made on any measures such as extending the current subscription period, in light of the suspension to the service.

There's more information about the resumption of these services on the NHDC website:

Dear Resident

We would like to thank everyone who voted in the Referendum and everyone who contributed to the Neighbourhood Plan during its production. We’re pleased to tell you that the outcome was positive with 128 (91%) voting for the Neighbourhood Plan and 13 (9%) voting against it.

This means that the Neighbourhood Plan will be formally made by NHDC in a few weeks’ time and will be used by planning officers when determining every planning application for the parish until 2031.

The Scarecrows… May be a bit late getting here

Saturday 27 June

Last month we told you that the Scarecrows are coming. It seems unlikely that we will have our Community Fun Day and Scarecrow Festival as planned on Saturday 27th June.

We will keep you updated on revised plans.

It is our hope that The Preston Trust and PHC will still be able to organise a joint community fun day to celebrate Village Day and the 200th anniversary of the founding of Princess Helena College.
