PARISH COUNCIL NOTICE – 11.05.2020
Old Newton with Dagworth & Gipping Parish Council
This continues to be a very challenging time for everyone and the latest advice remains largely the same but if you are returning to work you are now being asked to stay alert, control the virus, save lives.
We can all help control the virus if we stay alert. This means you must:
- Stay at home as much as possible
- Work from home if you can
- Limit contact with other people
- Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- Wash your hands regularly
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
PARISH COUNCIL MEETINGS
The next scheduled monthly meeting to continue Parish Council business will be via Zoom on Wednesday 3rd June 2020 at 8pm. Members of the public and the press are welcome to attend, but must contact the Clerk for the meeting ID and password by 6pm on the Wednesday of the meeting.
We are receiving a number of complaints regarding our footpaths and green spaces. Outside areas are being utilised much more than usual and it is essential we are all respectful of others.
- Dog mess on the footpaths, particularly around the playing field is totally unacceptable. Dog owners must pick up after their dogs. The Parish Council have provided a significant number of dog waste bins around the village and we urge you to use them. Thank you to those that are doing this but there is clearly a number of residents who are not.
- There are lots of brightly painted stones being left around our parish, which is great, especially for encouraging our younger residents to explore the outdoors, but please do not deviate from the designated footpaths and rights of to do so is trespassing. Please stick to the footpaths and rights of way for your daily exercise.
- As the waste recycling centre remains closed Fly tipping has also become a problem. If you witness any examples of fly-tipping please take a photo and report to Suffolk County Council or to the Clerk.
At the start of the lock down our Chairman made contact with DONG. It was agreed and decided as they already have the network and contacts they would continue to take the lead for community support. Sue Davy is now lead from Dong co-ordinating as Sue Clements is presently isolating. DONG members continue to do a fantastic job, the community engagement and support has been outstanding. Coupled with the BOB (food bank) agenda through the Churches the village is in excellent hands, with a number of people within the village benefiting. Both organisations have stepped up to the mark and are doing all manner of tasks. The Parish Council feel fortunate to have both these groups / organisations working within our parish. The network is running very well and the Parish Council are very grateful.
Thank you all for doing your bit, adapting to this 'new normal' is hard and the Parish Council recognise this. If anyone needs assistance or help whilst self-isolating please contact DONG who are co-ordinating any requests for assistance. DONG can be contacted on Tel: 07925 959605.
