CANCELLED – Spring Litter Pick

CANCELLED – PLEASE EVERYONE STAY AT HOME AND KEEP SAFE

The spring litter pick will take place on Sunday 29th March 2020.

Please report to the Neen Savage Village Hall at 10am for allocation of litter pickers and hi viz.

You only need to give a couple of hours and if enough people turn up we can cover a significant part of the Parish.

Reporting Potholes

The wet winter of 2019-20 has been very harsh on the roads all through our Parish. It is very important to report these to Shropshire Council so that they are logged and prioritised. The more people who report a pothole, the more likely it will get actioned.

Here is what you need to do.

1. Create an account on My Shropshire

2. When you have done that click on “New Request”

3. One option is Potholes/Surface Problems

4. If you can get the map to appear, put in your post code. That will bring you to a familiar location then you can move the map around until you locate the road with the problem. Double-click on the road and it will highlight the complete road.

[this doesn’t always seem to work first time, but do persevere]

5. Hit Send and you get a message “your selection on the map has been registered”.

6. Now you can add any additional information. It might be a good idea to be as specific as possible on where the pot holes are – just in case the Map Location hasn’t worked.

If you want to add to your complaint please send an email to the following:

Mrs McBride at Clerk@neensavageparishcouncil.org.uk

With a cc to Gwilym.butler@shropshire.gov.uk and madge.shineton@shropshire.gov.uk

The more emails they get about specific potholes the more pressure they can put on the people in Shrewsbury who allocate the work.

Autumn Litter Pick

The Autumn Litter Pick will be held on Sunday 17 November 2019.

Please meet at the Parish Hall at 10am to collect your litter picking equipment and instructions.

Many hands will make light work – in just 2 hours together we can collect a lot of rubbish and clean our roadsides.

Post 19 Travel Assistance Policy

To ensure Shropshire Council is meeting its statutory duties under the Education Act 2006, a new policy for travel assistance for adult learners accessing education and training is being proposed.

Youth Support

Shropshire Council is currently undergoing an 8 week consultation on youth support.

This Youth Consultation Information explains what Shropshire Council are doing.

There are two surveys to complete by 31 October 2019.
One for Children and Young People to complete and one for Individuals and Members of the Public.

The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete and then you email the completed survey to TellUs@shropshire.gov.uk
