A Rare Opportunity – High Speed 2 Stops at Aston le Walls

A Rare Opportunity – High Speed 2 Stops at Aston le Walls

Thu, 17 May 2018 08:22 by Dick Stephen

Representatives from HS2 and their contractors will be coming to Aston le Walls Village Hall on Wednesday 23rd May from 6.00pm.

Representatives will be present from:

  • HS2
  • Fusion, who have been awarded the HS2 contract for preparatory groundworks
  • Eiffage Kier, who are constructing the line

From 6.00pm until 7.30pm there will be the opportunities to see information boards and discuss one to one with representatives. More »

At 7.30pm presentations will be made followed by a Questions and Answers session.

The planning work for HS2 is now well underway. The HS2 team have been planning visits to most of the closely affected villages and now it is the turn of Aston le Walls.

Whilst accepting that the new high-speed railway is finally going to be built, here is a chance to come and talk to the HS2 team to see how and when it will be done. They have spent a lot of time in this area recently and have developed a good appreciation of traffic movements, local worries about difficult road junctions, concerns about road/footpath closures and nervousness about noise during the construction process.

We will discover their latest view on how much impact all of this is likely to have on the residents of our Parish.

This event has been organised by the Parish Council for members of the community to hear the latest developments.

It is an open meeting and everyone is welcome to attend; look out for the reminder flyer in your letter box. Do please come along to hear the latest news on how the building of HS2 will affect you.

Enjoy the spoils of recycling

Enjoy the spoils of recycling

Wed, 02 May 2018 20:57 by Dick Stephen

Gardeners can reap the rewards of recycling at two events being hosted by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) this May.

The council is holding free compost giveaways to promote its garden waste recycling service. People will be able to take home a share of compost made from their own green bin contents, while stocks last.

Cllr Dermot Bambridge, SNC's portfolio holder for environmental services, said: "Now is a great time to be planting out in time to enjoy a vibrant summer gardens. Getting nutrition right is a key part of that, and we're here to help with these compost giveaways." More »

"Everything we collect via the green bin service is taken to be shredded and mixed at a site in Helmdon. There, it gets composted and in just a few months is ready to be used by farmers helping them keep the soil healthy and fertile."

"I urge gardeners to attend these events and make the most of our shared efforts recycling their garden waste."

The giveaways will take place in Towcester and Farthinghoe where friendly staff will be on hand to answer questions about waste and recycling services and free kitchen caddies and caddy liners will also be on offer. The compost being given away at the events will be loose, so attendees will need to bring their own bags or containers and means of transporting it. The giveaways are taking place at the Tove Depot in Old Tiffield Road, Towcester on Saturday, 12 May; and Farthinghoe Recycling and Reuse Centre on Saturday, 19 May. Both giveaways run from 9am to 1pm and are first come, first served.
