Rushmere St Andrew Parish Council

Parish Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaires
Thank you to all those who responded to the Parish Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire. This will help enormously with pushing work forward and ultimately benefitting our parish.

New Notice Board
You may have noticed that new noticeboard has been installed at Limes Pond. Thank you to Councillor Robert Whiting for using his Suffolk County Council Enabling Communities Budget to part fund this project.

We currently have a waiting list for plots so if you are interested, we suggest you put your name down as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Dog Poo Bins
As of writing, we are in another lockdown and, despite the increase in the number of bins around the parish following the last lockdown, the increase in dog ownership and the need to stay closer to home is seeing bins quickly fill up with poo bags. When bins are full, bags are being placed next to the bins rather than using another bin or disposing of it at home. Although not ideal, it is preferable to upwards of 30 bags being placed around the bottom of a bin. Remember you can dispose of poo bags in the stickered litter bins.

Lockdowns cause an increase in foot traffic on the heath which unfortunately means some bins get full so much quicker. We will, of course, monitor this situation but thank you for your help in this matter and making our parish a nice place to enjoy exercising during lockdown for everyone.

Thank you to everyone in our parish for your continued patience in
doing your bit to keep us all safe by following government guidelines
and staying at home or two metres apart to prevent the spread of
Covid-19. It is now more important than ever in order to help our NHS
and save lives.
