Please see below information received from Harborough District Council regarding any missed bin collections from yesterday.

Due to the accumulation of snow in some areas of Harborough district this week, some bin collections have been affected. More »

Harborough District Council's bin collection crews are out today (Thurs) in some areas and will carry out scheduled collections where it is safe to do so.

Main roads are generally clear; however it is not possible for crews to access all villages and streets due to the icy conditions. Our crews are assessing each area, as they go, to establish whether lorries and crews are able to safely carry out collections.

Yesterday (Wed) black bins were collected in parts of Broughton Astley. Crews will return to Broughton Astley today (Thurs) to try to pick up black bins which they were unable to collect yesterday.

Crews will also be returning to some streets in Lutterworth today (Thurs) which they could not access yesterday to pick up recycling bins.

They will also be returning to Shawell, Cotesbach, Swinford, Catthorpe, Walcote (recycling bins) which crews were unable to empty yesterday – but only if it is safe to do so.

Residents are being asked NOT to report bins as a missed collection – instead they should leave any missed bins presented and our crews will endeavour to collect when the weather conditions allow.

There will be further updates on the District Councils website and on social media. » Less

The Parish Council has been informed that unauthorised access has been made into the former Brick Works Quarry off Speedwell Road and that trees and shrubs have been unlawfully cut down.

This area is the only noted Nature Reserve within the village supported by the Rutland Wildlife Trust. Damage to the flora and fauna can and will have a devastating and detrimental effect on the plants and wildlife contained within it. Reducing or removing the trees and shrubs causes erosion to the banks of the quarry and subsequently could raise a safety issue. More »

The Parish Council are working closely with Harborough District Council in taking steps to prevent any further damage from taking place. Also following recent bouts of fly tipping notices will be placed around the perimeter and the area will be frequently patrolled.

If you witness any unlawful damage to the trees and shrubs or fly tipping please contact the Parish Council at the address given at the top of this website and we will pass this o the relevant authorities. » Less
