CALLING ALL GARDEN LOVERS!!

 
New to the village or perhaps just haven’t heard about the vibrant village gardening club?
The club isn’t just about retired gardeners meeting to compare their tomatoes or discuss making compost. It is a mixture of lovely people enjoying great meetings and social events.  Why not try our next meeting on Thursday 7th September with a talk from Arthur Ball on the Birds and wildlife of Dowdeswell reservoir ? You would be very welcome. Further monthly  topics include Butterflies of Ettington and gardening for them, Gardens of the USA and Finding the angle at Chelsea.
Outings are always in the programme, the next being to the historic city and cathedral of Winchester for the Christmas Market.
All meetings are held in the small hall of the community centre and start at 7.30pm on the first Thursday of most months.  The annual subscription is £12. If you want to try us first then come to the meeting of your choice for a visitor’s fee of £3.
For more information on any of the club’s events  call Matthew on 748041. Follow us on Facebook.
Love your garden

Ettington Parish Fund

Ettington Parish Fund is a registered Charity (Registered Charity Number 254957) “for the general benefit of the inhabitants of Ettington for which provision is not made out of rates, taxes or other public funds”.

The Parish Council, as Trustee of the Charity, resolved that the fund should be made available for the benefit of individuals resident in the Parish and more specifically for:

  • Educational expenditure, for example course fees, additional school activities, uniforms, educational books and equipment;
  • Membership fees and/or uniform costs for attending recognised organisations such as Cub Scouts, Brownies etc;
  • Training or associated costs to be incurred by an individual in support of work with voluntary organisations or charities, especially those benefiting the local community.

If you would be interested in applying for a grant then contact Sarah Furniss, Clerk to the Parish Council on 01789 295827, 07786938072 or epc.clerk@yahoo.com who will provide you with guidelines and an application form.

Assisted Waste Collection

An assisted waste collection service is provided to elderly and disabled residents and those with a medical condition who cannot take their waste and recycling receptacles (wheeled bins or sacks / recycling boxes) to the edge of the property boundary.

If a member of the houshold can move the receptables to the normal collection point then the property does not qualify for an assisted collection.

If an assisted collection is appropriate, receptacles will be collected from an agreed point on the property. Please note: access must be granted to collection crews to ensure this service can be carried out effectively.

We routinely review the assisted collection service list to establish if circumstances have changed and whether households still qualify for the service.

If you feel that you qualify and would benefit from this service, please contact us.
