MARCH 2019

Annual Parish Meeting

The Annual Parish Meeting is usually held in March, prior to the normal Parish Council meeting, but this year it will be held on Wednesday, 10th April in the Auckley Parish Centre, commencing at 6.30 p.m. The meeting gives parishioners the opportunity to come and ask questions or express their concerns on any issue relating to the Parish. Alternatively, they can write or email their questions to the Chair of the Parish Council.

Auckley Litterpick 6th April

DMBC's Stronger Community Officer has arranged for a 'Litterpick' to take place on Saturday, 6th April 2019 at the Marr Flatts Plantation, Auckley, from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. Access to the Plantation is via the path adjacent to the Hayfield Lane Primary School or, alternatively, from the new Barratt/ David Wilson housing development.

New Planters for Village Green

The concrete flower planters on the village green, pinfold and land at Eastfield Lane have given good service over many years but now need replacing, and a range of designs and materials are being considered. New ones will be funded from a legacy kindly left by an Auckley resident who wished to contribute towards the local environment.

Community Transport Services

Community Transport Services are available for people who may find it difficult to access standard public transport due to disability, age and frailty, geographic isolation and those who would struggle getting to a bus stop. For a small charge the Services pick people up at their door and take them to a pre-arranged destination by mini-bus. The Shopper Bus - picks people up from home on a pre-determined day and takes them to and from a shopping location for a flat rate of 2.50 return. Dial-a-Ride - picks people up from a location and transports them to a destination of their choice. Fares start from 2.50 for up to a mile. To register for Community Transport Services ring: 01302 343 400.

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

Dog Fouling

Progress is continuing to be made on the matter of dog fouling. New signs have been erected and ‘Clean It Up’ doggie signs painted on footways to remind the public that it is an offence to allow dogs to foul the highway and footways. Please remember the public rights of way along the River Torne bank, Eastfield Lane and Bell Butts Lane, etc. are NOT excluded from the dog fouling regulations. Community First Wardens regularly monitor the village and will fine offenders. If a resident identifies a problem please contact Community First (tel. 01302 736000), or a Parish Councillor.

Responsible dog owners always carry a plastic bag with them and deposit dog waste in one of the bins provided. A new bin for dog waste has been installed on the path leading from Common Lane to Rossmoor Close, and there are 3 further bins on Riverside Park.

Dog waste bins on the Hayfield Estate are situated at the following locations:

Oak Tree Avenue
Fir Tree Avenue
Area between Apple Grove and Lime Avenue
Area between Hawthorne Road and Holly Road
Area between Sycamore Drive and Hazel Avenue
Poplar Way near junction with Sycamore Drive 

DMBC's Neighbourhood Services - dog fouling awareness competition.

DMBC's Neighbourhood Services recently organised a competition for the pupils of the two junior schools in Auckley Parish to raise awareness of the problems associated with dog fouling in the village, and involved the children drawing or painting a poster for this purpose.  The Parish Council donated funds to provide a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for each school.
The two schools involved were Auckley Junior and Infants' School and Hayfield Lane Primary School.
