Town Council Newsletter – October 2012

Plastics Collections
Each household in Northleach and Eastington should now have received their white bag for recycling rigid plastics. Our first plastics collection will take place on Thursday 11th October. Please do not stockpile more than two weeks worth of plastics before the collection date as the service may not be able to cope. The plastic recycling bin at the Westwoods Centre will be operational for the next few months if your household requires it.
Unfortunately there has been some fly tipping at this recyling point and it is now being monitored by CDC. Please do not leave any material there that is non-recyclable. 

North Cotswolds Food Bank
Some of our surrounding towns and parishes are now connected with the North Cotswolds Food Bank and the network, which helps families in need is growing month on month. All the food is donated and local care professionals such as doctors, health visitors and social workers, identify and distribute foodbank vouchers. If you would like more information on any aspect of this valuable resource they can be contacted on 07879 375562. If you do not have email or internet access please contact us for help via the Clerk details below.
