posted 30 Mar 2020, 02:36 by Pirton Parish Clerk

Covid 19 Emergency Measures

March 26th, 2020

UPDATED 26/03/20

Following the instructions around movement and gatherings from the Prime Minister on 23 March 2020, we are consulting with central government but as we understand the situation at the moment it is still permitted to visit your plot, to take daily exercise on their own or with members of your household. It is vitally important that you follow all the advice about social distancing and hygiene in the points below and not gather together on site.

Any plot-holder who is self isolating because a household member is ill with corona-virus should not be visiting the site.

Allotments
The National Allotment Society has issued useful guidance on how to manage allotments in accordance with government regulations.

NHDC - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: suspension of garden and food waste collections

posted 27 Mar 2020, 03:31 by Pirton Parish Clerk

From Monday 30 March unfortunately we will not be collecting any food waste caddies until further notice. All food waste should therefore be placed into your purple refuse bin.

We have also had to take the difficult decision to suspend our paid garden waste collection service from 30 March.

We do appreciate that this is a paid for service and once we know the full extent of the disruption, a further communication will be sent to garden waste subscribers.

For tips on home composting, go to our website.

We sincerely apologise for these changes and would have liked to give you more notice, but we have been forced to move very quickly so that we can prioritise collection of refuse and recycling. We know these unprecedented actions will be disappointing, but ask you to please work with us in these difficult times.
