Layne Field Play Area - Tidy Up

Sadly the council have taken the decision to postponed the tidy up as the weather forecast is looking quite rough for this Saturday.  The working party aims to rearrange for the following week Saturday 9th November 2019 at 9.30pm.  So any volunteers available to lend a hand will be warmly welcomed.

Thank you

Devon AlertRed Telephone

Devon and Cornwall Alert is a free community messaging system run by Devon and Cornwall Police to inform members of the public about crimes and incidents affecting their local area. 

Recorded messages are sent by telephone, email or text message to individuals or groups/businesses.

It is a two-way messaging system which helps us to connect with our communities; it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information.

The system is designed to allow people who register to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and local good news.

You can now recycle foil in your black recycling box!

The following items will now be accepted for recycling;

  • Foil containers including ready meal trays, quiche & pie cases, take away trays and pet food trays.
  • Foil lids including such as those found on some yoghurt and cream tubs and pet food trays. Please rinse off any food residue.
  • Kitchen foil, please don’t include any foil that has lots of baked on food or is very greasy.
  • Not sure if its foil? Do the scrunch test! Scrunch the pack or foil in your hand. If it stays scrunched it’s foil and can be recycled. If it springs open then its plastic film and cannot be recycled.
No thanks - Some things look like foil but are plastic such as crisp packets, drink, baby and pet food pouches, shiny ‘foil’ gift wrap. Please put these in your black bin
