20th April 2018 - The Parish Council has received some interesting information about recycling lids and caps on plastic and glass bottles and jars. You can see the full information by clicking here.



On May 14th, at 7:30 p.m., the Parish Council will be hosting the Annual Parish Meeting at The Clinton Hall. This year, we will have Richard Haste, the Waste and Recycling Manager from Torridge District Council, who will present the details of the new waste and recycling scheme (see below). This is your opportunity to ask Richard any questions you may have.



From 4th June, Torridge District Council will be changing their waste and recycling collection scheme. Details of the new scheme can be found in this leaflet, and details of food waste collection here.



  Torridge District Neighbourhood Watch.

Torridge NHW covers the areas of Bideford, Holsworthy and Torrington and we are proud that it is one of the safest places in England and Wales. Our aim is to help the police to keep it as a very low crime area by increasing the awareness of crime without increasing the fear of crime. The public plays a vital role in helping the police to reduce crime and NHW is a popular way for people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved. It is a proven fact that neighbourhoods covered by a Watch scheme tend to be less likely to become victims of burglary and other crimes. Watch schemes can vary in size from just two or three residents up to several dozen on an estate or block of flats and the schemes help to foster neighbourliness and community spirit which go towards building better communities.
