Martinstown... a dry community?

So far this winter our village stream has done really well in clearing the rain and ground water through the village and hopefully we can keep it that way. We have had other problems with groundwater when it hasn't got as far as the stream and ended up in the sewers, on the road and in the worst cases in peoples homes.

We are hoping to establish a small group of volunteers, maybe half a dozen or so folks, to help keep an eye on sections of the Winterbourne, look out for any water risks, raise issues and contribute to improvements in our flood planning. This wouldn't be arduous or particularly time-consuming especially if you already get out and about in the village.

If you are interested in being involved I would love to hear from you; please respond on this page, message me or drop me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
