CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR RECYCLING IN BEETLEY

As Christmas and New Year will soon be upon us, with the possibility of additional bottles being emptied please continue to recycle your glass at the New Inn bottle bank, to ensure that this facility remains and the cash comes back to Beetley Parish and not to Breckland Council. This recycling bank may be removed if not used as Breckland Council is still considering the future of all banks in parishes.

THIS YEAR’S PAYMENT FROM BRECKLAND COUNCIL WAS £400.45.

Beetley Buzz

The Parish Council wishes all residents a happy Christmas and

New Year.

There is no Beetley Buzz in December but please send items for the next issue by the 20th of January to:

Power cut? Call 105

105 is the new, free, number that people can call to report, or find out about, power cuts. You can also call 105 with any welfare concerns relating to a power cut or if you are worried about the condition of power cables or substations. The 105 number will put you directly through to your local electricity network provider to save time exploring who to contact in the event of a power cut.

DOG FOULING IN THE PARISH

There has been an increase in the amount of dog fouling which is occurring in the parish especially on Elmham Road and in East Bilney. Please clear up after your dog and place in the dog bins provided or take it home with you and place in your green wheelie bin. This includes clearing up after your dog on footpaths as well as verges outside properties. The Parish Council is trying to get footpaths cleared of vegetation but this is proving impossible in places because of the amount of dog fouling that has occurred. The contractors employed will not clear the footpaths which are covered in dog mess. Offenders will be reported to the Dog Warden which could result in prosecution.
