SEVERN TRENT: Simulation exercise, 15 October

On 15 October from 9am, Severn Trent Water will be undertaking a large exercise simulating an issue with Ladybower dam, which would require pumping and draining of water from the reservoir. 
This will involve one lane of the A6013 being closed, as well as the footpath across the dam.
This is just an exercise and doesn’t reflect any real life issues.

LITTER PICKING

A number of residents have asked whether the Parish Council could arrange for a regular monthly litter-picking session - rather than the more sporadic ones we have had in the past.

At May's Parish Council meeting, it was decided to take this idea up - and the proposal is to henceforth have a litter-picking session on the first Saturday in every month, starting from June 1st. Obviously this won't be convenient to everyone every month, but we hope that there will be at least a viable number each time - we'll see how it goes.

The plan is to meet at 1000 at the Institute on each occasion (and Sue Beckett says there will be refreshments at the Institute afterwards on each occasion!).

So that we know roughly what numbers we will have each time, it would be very helpful if you could email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. during the week prior if you intend to be there - thanks.

Thank you to everyone for their keenness in getting this going.
