Following the resignation of Graham Read as a Parish Councillor on 16th October the Parish Council have been seeking a replacement. As notified in the December 2018 Stevington Magazine, the vacancy will be filled by co-option at the January 2019 meeting. James Lockwood has notified his intention to stand for election and SPC are delighted that there is a representative of a younger demographic within the village.
Please join us for the next Stevington Big Clean Up. We meet at 10am on Saturday 20th October 2018 in The Village Hall, Court Lane. There is a quick safety briefing and distribution of equipment such as gloves, tongs, high vis jackets and teaming up of people for specific areas, so that no-one is ever alone. We also try to match places to people, so if accompanied small chidren are involved, for example, they might pick the Playing Field where there is no traffic.
You do not need to carry heavy bags of litter. Just tie the tops and leave them at the roadside for collection at 12 noon. Apparently Gary Thomas has (been) 'volunteered' for this job with his trailer. He will return all full bags of litter to the collection point at The Village Hall.
This time I will bring some carrier bags for any glass bottles that are found. These can then be collected separately from the land-fill rubbish and taken to the glass recycling.
It is a lot better fun than it sounds and a good way to meet people if you are new to the village. You may even wish to reward yourselves for a job well done with a little visit to 'a hostelry in the near vicinity'.
