Bucks CC, and the salt on your roads...

Just in from Buckinghamshire County Council:

"KEEPING MAJOR ROADS and key routes open will be a priority as the county council takes action to implement a salt rationing plan. Due to continued severe weather conditions the council will set in place a plan to ensure that the county's salt reserves are used in the most effective way possible.

From tomorrow (7 February) standard gritting schedules will be replaced with a rationing plan. This plan will see salting kept to A and B roads only - but with the addition of some key routes into settlements that have been identified as priority to keep open."

You can read the full statement and see which roads will/may be covered here.

Pictures Wanted!

Despite the weather, some of us did go to work and were not around to get any photographs of Chearsley in the snow!

Please email in your best efforts to, and I'll get them up here for all to enjoy - thank you!

Nicola Clark
Good wishes for a full recovery go to Nicola who was involved in an armed robbery at her jewellery shop in Aylesbury last month.

Mobile Library
This is next in the village at The Bell car park on Monday, February 16th from 1.10pm to 1.35pm

Snow in Chearsley
The snow this past week has prevented many Chearsley villagers leaving to get to work. Instead they have patronized the shop, tearooms and pub more than usual, greatly appreciating their existence. It is to be hoped that villagers will remember to keep supporting these vital village amenities once the snows have gone.

February 14th Jenny Morbey and Joe Garrity
This is the day my daughter marries Joe at Cley Windmill in Norfolk. All her family’s love and good wishes go to them on this day and their future together.

Refuse/Recycling Collections

Message received from AVDC on Monday 2nd as follows:

Unfortunately, the weather conditions today caused disruption to the Monday refuse and recycling collection service. Icy conditions are forecast for tomorrow morning, which could cause further disruption to the rounds.

If we have to cancel the rounds tomorrow, it will not be possible to catch up this week. The collections not made today and tomorrow will take place next Monday and Tuesday. Recycling material will be collected on the next due date.

However, If the service can go ahead tomorrow, the preference would be to slip all collections by one day eg Monday's would be on Tuesday and Friday's on Saturday. However, this is dependent on the tip operators agreeing to open on Saturday and sufficient number of refuse/recycling
operators and staff being available to work the extra day.

If these conditions are not met, collections will continue as scheduled for the rest of the week with Monday's postponed until next week.

The website and local media are being used to help keep residents informed of the situation.
