Chartridge Parish Council is promoting “Love my village”, a scheme which encourages residents to look after their patch, including picking up litter outside their property and exposing any overgrown road signs – all small things to keep our village tidy.
The Parish council is taking on the grass verge/hedge trimming as part of CDC devolved services. Having this done by local contractors we feel we can provide a better job as this was done so poorly in the past. The Parish council will need to increase the precept to cover costs but will ensure money is spent locally.
Other things under review are our own speed posts similar to the ones in Wigginton. For more information go to Chartridge Parish Council web site.
There is still a vacancy for a councillor to represent the Bellingdon ward. If you live in Bellingdon, have a genuine interest in the local community and how it is serviced, and can dedicate one evening each month to meet plus a small amount of your spare time to considering a range of issues (planning, highway maintenance, footpaths and bridleways, county and district council consultations to name but a few) please contact the Parish Clerk in the first instance.
