Volunteers Litter Patrol Saturday 4th March
The next Volunteers Litter Patrol will be on Saturday, 4th March 2017, meeting at the Village Hall Car Park at 09.45 for a 10.00 start. This will be our first opportunity to give our village a tidy up after the ravages of winter. Working in groups, our litter patrols are not hard work, and most of our volunteers find them enjoyable. Why don't you join us? Further details can be found here. If you would like to join us, give Bob a call on 01474 822680 or let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can sort out the teams and routes.
Ivy League at Shorne Crossroads
On 8th November, a small group of volunteers from Shorne Parish Council tackled the ivy on the bus shelter on the Lower Shorne side of Shorne Crossroads. The Ivy League consisted of Martin Redfern, Pauline Clifton, John Bugg, and Bob Lane. The results can be seen below.
Small Works Contractors Wanted
Shorne Parish Council would like to update its list of small works contractors. From time to time, the parish council needs to have items of work carried out, such as vegetation clearance, grass cutting, tree work, property maintenance, etc. Order values typically range from £50 to £500.
Contractors are required to be experienced and suitably equipped for the work they wish to undertake, and need to be in possession of adequate personal and third party liability insurance.
If you would like to be included on the list, please press here to download the form and return it to the council.
Footpaths Vegetation Clearance Volunteers Needed
It's that time of year again when footpath vegetation clearance volunteers are needed. We have already been told of overgrown vegetation in Crown Lane, and also Footpath NS321 near Crabbles Bottom. There may be others. If you would like to join our team in clearing soft vegetation from our footpaths, let us know at email@example.com. For further details, visit our Shorne Volunteers page here.
Please make sure your trees and shrubs don't obstruct footpaths
Please note that it is the home occupier’s responsibility to make sure that their shrubs, bushes and trees don’t obstruct footpaths, roads, and other public rights of way. If you have any shrubs, bushes or trees adjacent to public rights of way, please take the time to check them and to make sure they are cut back if they are causing any obstructions.
