Poster Competition

As we come out of the horrid COVID episode we have begun to receive details of local events that are planned, we really hope that they can go ahead and we can start to get back to some level of normality!

The events have been added to the diary and detailed further on the events page. The accompanying posters have been entered into the poster competition, to be judged later in the year.

So, the poster competition has been restarted with the couple of eligible entries we have received so far, lets hope that things get better from now on.


Local News

(taken from B&DBC's facebook page)

Basingstoke and Dean Borough Council - garden waste collection service resumed on Monday 15 November, after the service was suspended early last month to protect the core waste and recycling collection services.
We are anticipating that on the first collection, the majority of bins will be very full and customers are asked to bear with the crews while they carry out the collections as quickly as possible.
Following the disruption extra collections have now been added to all customers’ subscriptions. Customers will receive a letter four weeks before they are required to renew their subscriptions and the letter will display the new renewal date.
Please share this information with friends and neighbours – particularly those who may not be online.
You can find the latest information on our website: https://www.basingstoke.gov.uk/gardenwaste
