Whitnash Councillors litter pick in East Whitnash

On Saturday 14th April many of the Whitnash Town Councillors volunteered to do a litter pick on the streets of East Whitnash.
This is the new AC Lloyd housing development that has not yet been adopted by Warwick District Council. This means these roads are not swept or kept clean yet.
Adoption is expected still to be more than a year away.

Coppice Road footpath repairs update

We received a report regarding the footway works taking place on Coppice Road near Harrow Road.

Warwickshire County Council told us:
"In an attempt to inform residents about the works letters were sent during the third week of March to each house effected regarding the planned slurry seal treatment in 2018/19.
The letter gave planned start dates for both the preparatory works and the final treatment, as well as information about the treatment process.
In the letter it does state that the preparatory work can look untidy (particularly the sand carpet - the filling of depressions or regulating of uneven areas with a fine asphalt material).
This sand carpet is the infill work carried out this week. Though it can look untidy and the material can break away, it is a cost effective method of infilling depressions, since the entire surface will be covered by the slurry seal treatment within a couple of weeks.
I would also bring to your notice that part or the process is weed treatment prior to and after the slurry seal, as weed regrowth often occurs.

I know that it looks very ad-hoc until completion, but each part of the work goes to make the whole, I appreciate your patience."

Town Green Flowerbed takes shape

Work is underway to replace the flower bed on the Town Green. The previous wooden structure rotted away, so this time we are using brick.

Flower bed construction

We are in need of good quality top soil and plants. So if you can help with this please get in touch with the office, we would be most grateful.
