Planning for our Village Tidy on 22 April 2018

There are a few things to think about for this event. This check-list is designed to help us, and you, to be fully prepared for a successful pick! But above all to have a safe and enjoyable time.

Before the 2pm start

  1. Gather at the Margaret Preston Room in the Village Hall.

  2. You will be assigned one of the following:

    • Ashwellthorpe Road

    • Church Road

    • Hethel Road

    • Mill Lane

    • Playingfield

    • Top Row

    • Wymondham Road.

  1. We will issue the litter pick equipment. South Norfolk Council will supply: Litter Pickers / Waste sacks – one type for recycling and one for non-recycling / Hi-viz jackets.

  1. We will confirm main details with you (your collection area, duration of the pick, risk assessment and priority to recycle where possible in the sacks provided).

  2. Note that the items that can be recycled in your recycling sack will be: Plastic bottles, tins, cans, paper, card, tetra-paks, plastic food trays, foil trays and glass bottles.

The litter pick

  1. Go to the furthest end of your assigned area and commence the litter pick on the way back.

  2. Only pick litter in public areas (roadway, verges, ditches (if safe to do so), open spaces). Do not enter private gardens or driveways.

  3. Do not pick items up with your hands, only use the litter pickers.

  4. Remember to be considerate to your community and environment.

  5. Take Care! Especially when picking near traffic. If you have children with you, please make sure that they are appropriately managed and assisted on the day.

  6. We may record names of those involved and take pictures as SNC expect to draft press releases for the events in the district.

Upon returning to the Hall

  1. Place your waste sacks in the Hall’s main car park.

  2. Return the equipment and any unused bags.

  3. Come into the Margaret Preston room where we expect to have snacks and drinks available for all volunteers – do stay and chat with others.

  4. We will provide SNC with our event records and they will calculate the amount of litter collected. Once they receive this information they will enter the village name into as prize draw for £200 towards Hall funds.

  5. SNC will arrange to collect the waste bags.

We have received notification from NCC that the road though Top Row will be closed from 15 January to 18 February. This is to enable work to replace the water main through Top Row to go ahead.

As yet we do not know precisely what this means for residents in Top Row and will seek clarification in the next few days. Will Top Row residents make sure they and their neighbours are aware of this planned closure.

25 September Update

As promised, here is the name and contact details for the Anglian Water project manager:

Mick Renshaw
mick.renshaw@balfourbeatty.com
07967 689088

23 August – Update

From next week Anglian Water will commence their 6 month project to upgrade the water supply within Wreningham. See previous posts.

There are two preparatory tasks for them to address:

  1. To install a temporary pipe in Mill Lane to maintain the water supply during the project.

  2. To establish the project / site base behind the pumping station on Mill Lane.

1. Mill Lane pipe.

This will connect one side of the village supply to another during the whole of the 6 month project. Once the project is complete then the pipe will be removed. The objective is to provide an alternative supply line and thereby ensure the water supply has as few supply suspensions as possible during the next six months.

Next week the pipe will be laid to connect the “Wash Out” point on the Village Hall plot (in the corner nearest the school) and the Fire Hydrant near 41 Mill Lane.

The 6” diameter pipe will be laid around the extreme edge of the hall grounds, exiting through the hedge onto Mill Lane verge. It will continue along the South side verge of Mill Lane to near 41 Mill Lane. The pipe will cross several field gateways and one residential driveway. In those cases the pipe will be placed in a shallow trench to ensure the access remains unobstructed.

2. Project / site base.

The area behind the pumping station on Mill Lane will be used to hold construction materials, site offices, parking for equipment and vehicles, etc. This will mean that Anglian Water traffic will be using Mill Lane throughout the project. Users of Mill Lane need to consider this as well as the planned road closures already posted.

It is hoped to post in the near future, the name and contact details of the Anglian Water site manager should residents need to discuss issues.

29th July

Last month we warned of the intention by Anglian Water to undertake significant roadworks on all the roads within the Wreningham & Top Row. They have just contacted the Parish Council to confirm that they are replacing the cast iron water pipes across the village. See their letter – Water Mains Replacement

They are arranging for a community drop-in on 15th August from 2 pm to 8 pm in the Village Hall. They invite you to come along and find out more about what is planned and how it will affect you.
