A message from Jan, your parish councillor for Leisure and Amenities:
Dear allotment owners
I have visited the allotments today, April 4 and I can see that the grass is very long. The first cut is imminent and inevitably, a lot of cuttings are going to be produced. The grass contractors will not be collecting grass so I am afraid it will create a lot of grass across the plots that you will have to deal with. We have ordered more cuts this year so I hope that after this initial cut, the situation will improve .
I know one or two of you have asked for the dates when the contractors will be arriving. I am afraid, at this stage, that information isn’t available to me. If I can find out, I will, and let you know.
Homeless charity Julian House invites you to take part in the Circuit of Bath Walk on Sunday 27 September. This spectacular event takes in some of Bath’s most beautiful near countryside ensuring a really enjoyable day out whilst at the same time raising much needed funds for Julian House.
The stunning route which takes in Woolley, Solsbury Hill, Swainswick, Monkton Combe, to name a few, is split into 5 sections so walkers can choose to do as little as 2 miles, or, as much as 20. Part of the route is buggy friendly and dogs (on leads) are welcome on the entire route.
Why not take part as a team with colleagues, friends and family and enjoy a great day out.
One of the 5 start points is at the Bathampton Mill.
The event, now in it’s 15th year is one of their biggest annual fundraisers and they rely heavily on community support and word of mouth promotion – so tell all your friends and colleagues!
Attached is a flyer for the drop in session Network Rail are planning for Thursday 13th August.
The focus of the event is to give locals a chance to pop by to ask any questions/voice any concerns they may have about the work they are currently undertaking at Bathampton Junction.
