Community Service Award

Posted by on 19th July, 2019 in News

Meet our latest Haydon Wick Heroes Councillor Manro Vice Chairman of the Parish Council presented Charlie and Callum students at Nova Hreod School with a Community Service Award for their hard work earlier this year when they cleared rubbish around Basil Close play park in Haydon Wick. The Parish Council was alerted to some car tyres, metal objects, and general waste which had been piled up by a bin at Basil Close Play Park Haydon Wick. At first we wondered if this was fly tipping, but it soon became apparent from Facebook comments that two young lads had spent one Saturday morning clearing this rubbish from the hedgerows around the play park. As their identity was unknown it took some time to locate Charlie and Callum, but with the help of Facebook our Officers were able to make contact and arranged with Nova Hreod School to present them each with a Community Service Award for their fantastic efforts in keeping their local area clean and tidy. During the presentation Charlie recalled how hard it was hard pushing the tyres up the slope to get it to the bin, and how there was a hedge which was hard to get into, but Callum got through to pick up the rubbish and his jacket got stuck on the branches. Councillor Vinay Manro praised them both for their efforts, and thanked them for thinking about their local play park, the public and local wildlife. #haydonwickheroes            ...

Hedge Cutting

Posted by on 25th June, 2019 in News

Hedges within the parish boundary require maintenance trimming to keep them within bounds.  The best time of year for this maintenance pruning is during the summer months when the plants are active, with a hard prune on both hedges and shrubs in the late autumn/early winter months.  Unfortunately this does mean that the maintenance pruning will be occurring during the bird nesting season. When undertaking  these summer works on the shrubs and hedges, our contractors will be responsible for checking that there are no birds nesting, as it is an offence under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 to damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is active. The bird nesting season is usually considered to run from March to August, although this can vary depending on weather patterns or the type of birds. If our contractors do see active birds’ nests, they will postpone the summer maintenance on that section of shrubs/hedges, until the nest is deemed non-active.  This may mean there are some sections of work that will not be completed next to other areas that have been pruned due to active birds but we believe that as most of the shrubs are low level, birds will not be nesting in these areas due to the inherent dangers this brings to the nest (especially from cats). Currently, we are undertaking a light cut of hedges and bushes that may be causing a hazard.  Our Contractors started this programme in Abbey Meads, are currently in Taw Hill and will move on to Oakhurst and finishing in Haydon Wick approximately the end of July. If you have any concerns about overgrown bushes causing a hazard, please contact the office ideally by emailing tidyup@haydonwick.gov.uk or telephone 01793 724263....
