RUBBISH FREIGHTERS: Apologies that the freighters were cancelled at short notice last Sunday morning. Unfortunately due to a clash with the St. Catherine’s Hospice walk SERCO’s Risk Assessor attended at 8.30 am Sunday morning and deemed it too dangerous for the vehicles to operate with the increased traffic and parking resulting from the sponsored walk. Hopefully the Parish Council will be able to reschedule in the next month or so and will let residents know as soon as possible.
