GOOD news for all Tetbury residents as Cotswold District Council restarted its garden waste collection service on Wednesday.
The service is available to all customers who hold a 2019 to 2020 garden waste licence.
Existing licences have been extended and they will start the renewals process in June.
They will not be able to collect side waste or collect overloaded bins.
A spokesman for the district council said: “Our crews will only be able to collect the garden waste that is presented in your garden waste bin.”
And please do not attempt to take any garden waste to any of the county council’s Household Recycling Centres, as these are currently closed.
FANTASTIC news for Tetbury as the Post Office has now re-opened thanks to the diligent staff who have decided to once again open its doors for the community.
The new opening days and times are Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm, until further notice.
TETBURY Town Centre continues its journey back to normality as even more businesses continue the towns regeneration.
The Blue Zucchini are now offering their mouthwatering menu for takeaway.
This service will be available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6pm to 9pm. Collection only.
Orders must be paid in advance by card and they will give you a collection slot. So please ring 01666 505852 to order.
Overrider, the women’s clothing store which offers clothes, girls wear, accessories and of course the boot room are now offering a click and collect service where you will be able to look online order and then pick up from the shop, whilst maintaining social distance.
LAST week Tetbury had a visit from Gloucestershire Constabulary along with the Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Service (GDASS), which is a county-wide service designed to reduce the level of domestic abuse and improve the safety of victims and their families.
The mobile unit was stationed at Tesco where you could meet some of the workers who were keen to show that they are still working especially in this time of crisis.
Domestic abuse could happen to anyone. It is never acceptable and is definitely not healthy.
Abuse does not always mean being hit, it also includes sexual abuse and bullying.
If you are feeling intimidated by a partner (or ex-partner or family member), or they have made you feel frightened, then you may be experiencing domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is not always carried out by a partner, it could be an ex-partner or a family member. Unfortunately, victims can be anyone regardless of gender or sexuality.
Nickie told me: ‘’We offer a range of services including Safe Teenage Relationship Education and Empowerment Team STREET which is a county-wide service for young people aged 13-19 who have experienced or are experiencing teenage relationship abuse.’’
If you feel you need help or advice then please call the helpdesk on 01452 726 570 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
They are open from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, or there is always the 24-hour National Domestic Violence Helpline 0808 2000 247.
COUNCILLOR Peter Coleman, said he was obviously very disappointed that the plans the council had to celebrate VE Day in the town had to be postponed.
And that is the key word, postponed.
Peter said: “Obviously we will be celebrating this, but at a later date, so please watch out for future announcements.
“I’m hoping that this will be a celebration not only for VE and VJ day but also for victory over the Covid-19 virus.”
