Our previous community litter pick was in May 2016! Parishioners have noted that there are areas where litter has accumulated.
Consequently the Parish Council has arranged a litter pick on Sunday 6 October at 11am. Equipment will be provided by DDC. Meet at the village hall. Our intention is to pick litter across the whole Parish.
There will be plenty of child-friendly picking so it really is something for all the family. Please come along for an hour or so.

The Parish Council will consider the consultation at their September meeting.
There is a general offer of financial support from Gigaclear for fund-raising events and other activities which benefit the community.
The sales team at Gigaclear has told the Parish Council that its Marketing Department might be prepared to consider – in exchange for publicity – providing financial support for community “events and activity”, such as sponsorship for fund-raising events.
This will probably be on a ‘first come first served’ basis, so Holcot community groups that rely on fund-raising are encouraged to contact Gigaclear ASAP.
To find out more details on their conditions, criteria for eligibility, and what info you might need to provide, please make initial contact at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Gigaclear’s full fibre ultrafast broadband is now live for most of Holcot. This is a new service, the information below is provided in good faith. The Parish Council cannot certify the quality or value provided by any service delivered to Parishioners.
These are the package choices:
If you have NOT previously registered an interest in Gigaclear’s broadband, but might now be interested, the ball is in your court : you just need to contact them by email or phone (see below). However, if you’ve previously registered an interest with them, they will contact you anyway.
If you’re currently in a broadband contract and would prefer Gigaclear to contact you towards the end of your contract, simply send an email with the month your contract ends, and they’ll give you a ring closer to the time.
Is the jacket in this photo yours? Even if it’s not your own, do you recognise it as belonging to a friend or relation?
It’s now hanging on the coat rail behind the stage curtains in the Hall.
Please collect it next time you’re in the Hall; or, to gain access, contact the Hall on 07900 942 046 (leave a message if no answer with your own contact details) or email : email@example.com
