Green bin service.
From the 1st April 2021 the green bin collection is £40 a year. Bins will only be emptied if they display a valid sticker. You can get a reduction to £35 a year if you apply before 28th February. Applications can be made on line at waste or by phone.
Volunteer drivers required.
VASA needs volunteers to help get local patients to receive the Coronavirus vaccination. Have you got some spare time during the day? Volunteers drivers: if you have a clean driving licence and would like to help people in your community who would otherwise struggle to get to their vaccination appointment and home again, please get in touch. 45p mileage costs paid.
Telephone operators: Have you got your own computer, decent admin skills and like talking on the telephone? We need plenty of people to help take transport bookings to vaccination appointments. If you could spare one or two mornings a week we would love to hear from you.
To help, please call 01789 262889 or email

Parish Council Grant Fund
Alderminster Parish Council has a small grant fund available for projects of benefit to the community. Please click here for a copy of the application form.
Alscot Estate has raised concern about the increased use - by dog walkers - of the fields adjacent to The Bell.
The estate withdrew agreements for grazing on this land to allow immediate access by Alscot Estate/The Bell to clean fields.
Since livestock has been removed, the fields are being frequented more and more by dog walkers.
The land does not have any public rights of way across it, nor has public access been sanctioned.
Therefore, people are requested to refrain from using these fields for exercising dogs.
Alscot Estate is sympathetic to the needs of dog walkers and is exploring the possibility of offering alternative routes across estate land.
