Do something for the environment this Christmas (and save money too!)
Do you always end up throwing away food over Christmas? Many of us do and so waste money and add to landfill. Click here to see some suggestions to reduce food waste over Christmas.
Christmas Lights Switch-on Event
The Christmas Lights were switched on at 4:30pm on Friday, 29th November 2019.This year the ceremony took place by the Christmas Tree in front of Lime Avenue shops. The extra space near the Lime Avenue tree meant that the event was much safer for those attending and it all worked very well with a good number attending and all were able to enjoy a mince pie and a cup of mulled wine as well enjoying the singing led by pupils from our village primary schools. Thank you to all the children from the schools who took part and to everyone who came along to get Christmas off to a rousing start. Thank you also to Barry our local “celebrity” for switching on our lights this year. Perhaps we can persuade Cllr Edwards to bring along Doris the Donkey next year as we’ve all heard so much about her!
New Streetcare Service in Weaverham
Following representations made over past months by the Parish Council, CWaC Council Streetcare Department have allocated a new Lengthsman, Matt, to work in Weaverham for three days per week. Please make him welcome and I’m sure, once he’s had chance to get to know his way around, we will see a marked improvement to the cleanliness of the Village.
Please remember that we can all help keep our village looking good by making sure we dispose of our litter correctly by putting it in the litter bins or by taking it home. A huge “Thank You” to the very many of you who already help in this way and also to those who pick up other litter that they see – your efforts are much appreciated.
