Local elections will take place on 2nd May 2019 for the Mayor of Bedford and for Parish Councillors.
If you wish to stand for election as a Parish Councillor you can access nomination forms here. You need to be 18 years of age, live in the village and have the best interests of this community at heart. You will need the signatures of two other residents of the village who are also on the Electoral Roll to nominate you. If you need help with the forms contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join us for the next Stevington Big Clean Up. We meet at 10am on Saturday 23rd March 2019 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. We are looking for a volunteer with a pick up or trailer to help 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'.
Neighbourhood Watch have a new website where you can join your local group and find out how you can keep your local community safe. Stevington currently needs a Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator. If you are interested in helping in any capacity email email@example.com
