Lies, damned lies, and, er... no grit in the bins

It has come to the attention of the Parish Council that a Chearsley resident, on telephoning Highways, was told the reason the village grit bins are empty is because the PC did not order a refill.

On behalf of the Parish Council, I would like to categorically deny this, and state that a request was made in February for replenishment. The parish clerk was informed that there was none available at the time, but that the bins would be refilled. This never happened, despite the matter being pursued.

The Chairman himself will endeavour to pick up some salt and sand on Tuesday morning for distribution around the village, and any resident who has obtained, or can obtain some themselves, will be reimbursed by the PC (who will in turn put in a claim to Highways). Please keep your receipts and pass them on to the Parish Council Clerk.
