St Marys Close verge tidy and grass cutting

The Parish Council arranged for Matthew Pope, our grass cutting contractor, to tidy the verge at the junction of St. Marys Close and Helpston Road.  Our contractor worked in line with the latest government coronavirus regulations.  Please see the “before and after” photographs.

Matthew will be cutting the grass areas in Bainton and Ashton on Friday 10th April subject to any changes in government legislation.  The grass in the Bainton play area has got very long and this will be cut but residents are reminded that the playground is closed due to the virus outbreak.

 

 

Garden Waste (Brown Bin) Schedule Changes – March to August 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

Anyone signed up to receive garden waste collections will no longer need to renew this service in April. Subscriptions will automatically be extended until July free of charge and the recurring direct debits will be paused.​

During this period no new subscribers will be able join the service and collections frequency will reduce to monthly. This will enable the council and Aragon Direct Services to prioritise collection of Green Recycling, Black Residual and Grey Food Caddie bins for all residents. 

Changes to collection schedule during Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Garden Waste (brown bin) collections will be moving to a four-weekly schedule to ensure during this time refuse services can be maintained to all residents as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

  • The day of the week your collection takes place will remain the same but your garden waste will only get collected once every 4 weeks. 
  • No extra garden waste placed by the side of the bin will be collected – as it would slow the crews down and mean more resources would be needed to collect the garden waste.
  • Bin lids must be shut and bins not overflowing – they can become off-balanced when being tipped into the collection vehicle. This can lead to them falling off and injuring people. We want to protect our staff and members of the public.
  • Garden Waste should not be placed in the refuse bin – we will do everything to ensure collections of refuse continue, however, if there is a delay, residents may need spare capacity in there refuse bin. It would be sensible to priorities other waste.
  • Missed Collections – we will try to ensure your collection is made, however, if we are required to move staff onto Black or Green bin rounds to maintain core services, unfortunately, we may have to cancel Garden waste collections and these will not be returned for.
  • Our collection crews are key workers doing and vital job, please support them in their role by driving safely near them – we have weekly regular reports of cars driving on pavements to get round vehicles or sitting too close to the back of the trucks. Our staff have been hit on numerous occasion by cars driving on pavements. Please be patient and help to keep them safe.
  • Please ensure that bins are placed out by 6.45am on your collection day

Collection dates for Wittering, Wothorpe, Thornhaugh, Wansford, Sutton, Castor, Ailsworth, Marholm, Bainton, Barnack, Ashton, Ufford, Pilsgate:

  • Tuesday 21st April 2020
  • Tuesday 19th May 2020

Tallington Road Flooding Update

New updates on Tallington Road Flooded again

We attended to this site twice prior to Christmas to ensure the 4 drainage gullies were clear of detritus, then due to the surface water returning we got a 6 inch pump on site on Wednesday 15th January and pump all the water down to the open ditch by the railway crossing, this flowed, via the culvert under the railway. we left the road dry at the close of play, however the surface water returned on the road the following day, further investigations into this found the adjacent fields was draining onto the road via the saturated ground. Therefore we then appointed a jet vac tanker with a high pressure jetter and suction capacity to completely drain down the system and surround land and then we also cleanse all the pipe work running in the verge, as this become silted with all the field run off. However with the system drained down and the pipe work all cleansed and manholes / gullies emptied, we flow tested the system and everything appears to be working adequately.

State changed to: Fixed
