PARISH COUNCILLOR VACANCY – Old Newton with Dagworth
The Parish Council currently has a vacancy for the position of Councillor and the Clerk would like to invite individuals from our parish to volunteer for co-option. All nominations will be considered but please note that as the majority of our meetings are currently being conducted virtually a basic understanding of computers and information technology and access to a form of an electronic device such as a computer, laptop, ipad or tablet etc is essential. All applicants will be reviewed and voted for co-option by the Parish Council. If you are interested in volunteering as a Parish Councillor, please submit your details in writing either by post or email to the Parish Clerk prior to the next meeting of the Parish Council on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
Following on from the number of complaints regarding our footpaths and green spaces. The Parish Council have purchased some “Dog Poo” signs in addition to the ones the village hall have purchased for use on the public footpaths, these will be placed near to dog bins on various footpaths around the village in an attempt to remind dog owners that they must pick up after their dogs. The Parish Council have provided a significant number of dog waste bins around the village and we urge you to use them. Thank you to those that are doing this, as usual we believe that it is a small minority that are to blame.
The BOB food collections are going very well. The organisers have lots of soup and beans but other donated items are very welcome, there are collection boxes about in the village. It is envisaged that people will probably use the service more in the coming months. Please refer any households that would be able to benefit from this service. They are always available on Thursdays and Saturdays at the Church Institute. The new vicar has done well to get this established and tying in with our community groups and DONG. Help can be arranged on a completely confidential basis.
Thank you all for continuing to do your bit, adapting to this 'new normal' is hard and the Parish Council do acknowledge and recognise this. If anyone needs assistance, please contact DONG who are co-ordinating any requests for assistance. DONG can be contacted on Tel: 07925 959605.
