St Oswald’s Church re-opening

June 22nd, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on St Oswald’s Church re-opening)

After a detailed risk assessment, the PCC have agreed that St Oswald’s will be open for private prayer twice a week from Monday 22nd June. Please note, this is for private prayer ONLY – there are no services planned at the moment.

On Mondays the church will be open from 10am to 12noon and will open again on Thursdays from 12noon to 2pm. There will be guidance in place to ensure social distancing and hygiene (hand sanitiser will be available).

We hope this sees a beginning of a return to normality although we all still have to be cautious.

Best wishes

Keith Phillips

Churchwarden.

St. Oswalds’s Church

In addition, we are hoping that the new vicar, Father Murray Aldridge-Collins, will be officially installed as vicar on Thursday. 16th July. Unfortunately, it will be via a Zoom link but, nevertheless, progress is being made!

Garden waste collections

June 1st, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Garden waste collections)

28 May 2020

Background

Garden Waste collections were suspended in March at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown as staff sickness levels in the workforce increased, and this decision ensured the domestic waste and recycling service could continue to operate as normal

Staff sickness levels have fallen in recent weeks and more staff are now available to collect residents’ garden waste in addition to providing the usual service.

What is happening

Collections will return to the previously advertised schedule and we will continue to monitor the national Covid risk rating, infection rate, and the continued availability of staff in the weeks to come to ensure we can continue to run all services while ensuring staff safety.

Residents will be asked not to overfill their bins or to leave additional garden waste next to their bin, as crews will not be able to collect any side waste and they will be asked to put their green bin out by 7am on their normal scheduled collection day.

We will only be able to empty garden waste containers once on the scheduled collection day.  Excess garden waste can be composted, taken to the nearest recycling centre or placed into the garden waste container ready for the next scheduled collection.

Household waste and recycling collections will continue as normal.

Re-introduction of garden waste collections

The garden waste collection will re-commence from 4 June 2020. Garden waste will be collected:

  • On the residents normal scheduled collection day.
  • Waste must be contained within the correct garden container provided.
  • Additional garden waste not placed in the container will not be collected. ( see FAQs)
  • Bins must be out by 7am on scheduled collection days.
  • Residents must leave the containers out if not collected as collections times may vary.
  • If the container is not emptied on the scheduled day – residents must report a missed collection.
  • The container  will not be emptied if it is too heavy ( see FAQs)
