BLACK AND CLEAR SACK DELIVERIES
This year’s annual black and clear sack delivery is scheduled to take place between April 5th and May 13th 2016 and the website has been updated for customers to see this information here: http://www.colchester.gov.uk/pickuprecyclingcontainers
A detailed schedule for different areas of the borough hasn’t been published again this year to minimise confusion for customers if changes are made to delivery routes or dates during this time. Customer Services centre will be made aware of the areas that have been delivered to each week so they can assist customers contacting us with specific queries.
Residents can report a missed delivery any time from the 5th of April up to and including the 27th May. All re-delivers will start from 17th May. We will encourage residents to use the online form on the webpage, however as this should mainly fall outside of the main billing period, wait time should be minimised for any customers calling the Council to report.
It is also clear from previous years that, for a number of reasons, many residents contact us after the delivery period to report that despite requesting a further delivery, they have still not received them. This year, we will aim to re-deliver these directly to the customer and where possible, obtain a signature. If this is not possible, our crews will ensure that the bags are left securely at the address and will note the location. For residents who want to contact us to notify us of a missed re-delivery, internally we have allowed an additional two weeks to report this, from the 28th of May to the 10th of June. Please note that these dates are specifically for those residents reporting a missed re-delivery only.
We would be grateful for your assistance in promoting the delivery and subsequent reporting periods to residents to avoid any disappointment.
Specifically deliveries April 5th to May 13th, reporting missed deliveries up to the 27th of May, re-delivering to start from 17th May, and that the dates and reporting options are available online at www.colchester.gov.uk/pickuprecyclingcontainers.
This should give residents the opportunity to ensure they can report and receive their allocation of sacks prior to the cut-off date of 10th June when we can no longer take reports of a missed delivery. After this time, residents can pick up rolls of recycling bags along with other containers from the network of stockists across the borough who hold containers year-round. These are all listed on the webpage above.
Delivery and missed delivery reporting dates are also being promoted in our forthcoming press release and other communications.

PARISH COUNCIL POLICY ON THE PUBLICATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS
Attendees at events in the parish will be advised by the photographer that if they object to their photographs being published they should advise the photographer at the time.
The parish council have had complaints about the amount of dog mess on the Harold Fairs Recreation Ground. It is an offence to allow your dog to foul a public place without clearing it up, and the Recreation Ground and The Old Playing Field are both public places. Please could all dog owners help keep our village clean and safe, and report to the Dog Warden at Colchester Borough Council on 01206 282581 if you see another owner failing to clear up. Thank you. – Parish Council
COMMUNITY STREET WARDENS
Whilst other Councils are cutting back it is encouraging that Colchester B.C. have introduced a team of Community Wardens, who by car or on foot, and armed with wide ranging set of roles, target improving the quality of life for residents and visitors and to reduce the incidence and fear of crime and disorder
There are 7 Zones – our Parish falls in Zone 2 and our contacts are Gary Cole on 07507 647373 or Zoe Frost on 07817 297215. Both may be contacted direct on these numbers.
Warden’s cars are very distinctive with large lettering emblazoned on the sides saying ‘Colchester Community Wardens’ with ‘Community Safety Scheme Accredited’ symbols.
Wardens all wear a distinctive uniform, which while being intentionally ‘casual’ also serves the purpose of being both functional and visible.
Although the wardens have no police powers, they have been accredited by Essex Police to issue fixed penalty notices (FPN’s) for specific misdemeanours. Activities include: –
•Developing links with local neighbourhood-watch schemes.
•Attending community forums and residents associations.
•Distributing crime reduction advice.
•Being a point of contact for access to services for vulnerable people.
•Monitoring and/or removing graffiti.
•Attending to abandoned vehicles and issuing notices for car tax evasion to DVLA.
•Enforcing laws concerning fouling by dogs and littering.
•Monitoring and feeding back on environmental concerns.
•Under police accreditation, removing cigarettes and alcohol from young people.
•Educating and providing information on recycling and environmental issues
•Investigating incidences of fly-tipping, clearing – where case evidence can be found prosecuting.
The Wardens are also involved with the communities’ youth and older peoples groups, assistance with sport and leisure activities, community Fete’s and organising shopping trips.
The post office outreach service for Great Tey is now every Tuesday and Friday at the Village Hall, opening from 1.30pm until 4.30pm. Please use this service if you want to keep a post office service in the village.
The Village Notice Board is located on the wall of Bell House Garage, at the top of the Chase opposite the Chequers Pub..

There have been a recent spate of burglaries in the Village. Crimes can take place at any time of day or night, so please be vigilant and keep and eye open on your own, and your neighbours, properties.
You can phone the police on 101 to report any strange activity, but if it is an emergency and you require the police immediately, please phone 999.
For any one who is new to the village and is interested, we do have a paper delivery service. The papers come from the Post Office at Marks Tey and are delivered to a point in the village where the children collect them and deliver them before going to school. Unfortunately this delivery service is limited to the village only during the week (Mon – Fri), all out lying houses have to fend for themselves. There is a delivery service to the outlying houses as well as the village at the weekend though. The charge is 30p per day in the village and 75p per day (Sat – Sun) for out lying house. This cost may seem high, but it has to cover the cost of the children and weekend adult who deliver the papers and also the cost of the man who delivers early every morning to the village. If any one is interested in having a paper delivered they should contact the Post Office at Marks Tey and let them know your name and address and where your house is situated.SCOUTS, BEAVERS AND CUBS
Places are available for girls and boys to attend our Beaver Colony (6-8 years), Cub Pack (8 – 10.5 years) and Scout Troop (10.5 – 14.5 years).
We meet every Wednesday evening during school term time in the Village Hall. Beavers from 6pm to 7:15pm, Cubs from 7pm to 8:30pm and Scouts from 7:30pm to 9pm.
If you know a young person who might like to join our group, please contact Melvin Tarman (number above) or speak to any of our Leaders on Wednesday evenings.
Places are available for girls aged 7 — 11 years to join Great Tey Brownies
Due to lack of numbers the 35+yr old pack may have to close.ROAD MAINTENANCE
