After a well attended meeting held on the 10th June to discuss the proposed  scheme to control traffic through the  Church Street bends, it was felt that the  whole village should have its say. The  easiest and fairest way of doing this is  with a ballot of all those in the parish who  are on the electoral roll. The ballot will be  held on Wednesday 8th July between the hours of 3 – 8pm or on Sunday 12th July between the hours 2 – 4pm at the village hall. 
Church Bends Ballot
If for any reason you are unable to attend either of these days due to illness, disability or age please contact the parish clerk  or on 01264 398 534 who will  deliver a ballot paper to you on which you can enter your decision. There will be only one question on the ballot paper, “Do you support the proposed traffic scheme for the church bends?” Yes/No.
Everleigh Recycling Centre i.e. “the tip”. From Monday 13 July 2015 Everleigh Recyling Centre will have new opening hours. It will be open from 10am until 4pm and closed all day on Wednesday and Thursday.
