WINGFIELD WOMBLES – 2017 – Thank You!

On behalf of the Parish Council, we'd like to thank everyone who helped with the annual Wingfield Womble tidy up on the 8th of April 2017.  It was a lovely sunny day and the volunteers collected 40 bags of rubbish & various other items such as car tyres.  This is the fourth year that we've done the tidy up and we seem to be getting on top of the rubbish and fly tipping, which is improving the tidiness of the village. Cheers! Tony RUBBISH 2017

Fly-tipping in Wingfield! – Who did this?

An absolutely shocking and appalling site appeared in Wingfield today.  Someone has fly-tipped a conservatory roof in the lay-by on the B3109 between the crossroads and Bradford on Avon.  If you know anything about this, can you please inform the parish council, as it is socially unacceptable for rubbish like this to be dumped in our village.  At the next meeting of the Parish Council in September we will be discussing the installation of CCTV in the lay-bys to record future incidents of fly-tipping.
Thanks,
Tony

Wingfield Wombles – BIG THANKS TO ALL – 9. 4.16

"We would like to say a big thank you to everyone from the village who turned up on Saturday 9th April to take part in the annual Wingfield Womble.  We really appreciate all of your efforts and hope you agree it was a very worthwhile exercise.  We'd like to thank Councillor Simon Taylor and David Robinson for the loan of their vehicles which proved invaluable.  We picked up 104 bags of rubbish, 10 car tyres, an oil drum, old wheelbarrows, and countless other fly tipped paraphernalia.  Date for your diary for 2017 - Saturday 8th April when we do it all over again!  See you there and thanks again.  Cllr Tony Bennion"
Thanks,

WINGFIELD WOMBLES – GREAT WORK!

Taking advantage of the road closure last week, Tony Bennion, Parish Councillors and friends finally took direct action to sort out the litter epidemic in Wingfield. Many THANKS go out to Tony, Helen,Max & Cosmos Bennion, Helen's dad Doug Male, Maggie Novotni, Peter & Yvonne Roberts & Jon Trimby for getting out there and getting their hands dirty.
