SIDDINGTON CORONAVIRUS SUPPORT (SCS)
|SOCIAL DISTANCING AND SELF ISOLATION ARE THE NEW NORM – BUT YOU ARE NOT ALONE
· Are you unable to leave your home to collect essentials (food/medication) because of COVID-19/ Coronavirus?
· Are you a keyworker and have limited time or access to get any basic necessities or conduct day to day tasks?
· We’re here for you.
· How we can help:
Who are we?
We are a group of Siddington residents who have come together during a time where some people are finding it hard to access the help they need.
We would like to support the Siddington resident and ensure that nobody is left isolated or without support. We don’t ask for anything in return, we just believe in helping each other in a time of difficulty.
We are your local neighbours and not a professional body. We can only offer help within reason, and in ways we that mean we can also stay safe.
Do you need support or want to help?
Please email email@example.com or call 01285 610231 or go to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Siddington-Coronavirus-Support-104188954557898/ and let’s see how we can help.
From Cotswold District Council:
GARDEN WASTE SERVICE SUSPENDED
We have had to suspend the garden waste service. We now have a 20% shortage of staff and no longer have enough experienced drivers available for vehicles on all collection routes. Therefore we are suspending the garden waste service with immediate effect so we can prioritise drivers on the main (statutory) collection services.
All other collections are continuing as normal for the moment.
We’ll be publishing further updates and advice on the CDC website today (26th March 2020).
Notes & Advice for Residents:
People should increase their home composting and/or reduce the amount of garden waste produced. Lawns are the usual problem – mowing less, planting more wildflower meadow areas, leaving more areas to grow long and only picking up the cuttings every other mow (which lets it dry on the ground before it goes in the compost) all help. If residents don’t have a compost heap now would be an excellent time to start one.
Gloucestershire County Council has already closed the Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) so green waste cannot be taken there.
Residents should not put garden waste in the black wheelie bin – excessive wet waste is a problem for the operation of the “Energy from Waste” (Javelin Park Incinerator) plant where all Gloucestershire’s black bin waste goes. Garden waste in the black wheelie bin will not be accepted.
Parish Council website:
Our website serves the Parish of Siddington and has two main aims:
- to allow Parish Council documents and information to be distributed and available for everyone to access;
- to engage you with the activities of your Parish Council and encourage your input and participation in Parish Council matters.
The website is run by Siddington Parish Council for the residents of the Parish. It aims to offer a useful information resource for all. We hope you find the website easy to use and that it helps you to keep connected with what is happening in our Parish.
Please get in touch if you have any suggestions about how we might improve the website.
