Over-full Dog Bins on Boxted Playing Field.

Boxted Parish council apologises for the problem that has arisen over the past few weeks caused by a change to a new maintenance contractor and a misunderstanding over starting dates which had meant that the bins were not being emptied weekly as has always been the case. This situation has now been rectified, the bins have been emptied and arrangements are in place for them to be emptied weekly from now onwards, with a double layer contingency plan in place for the bins to emptied at short notice by other parties, should our contractors let us down again, so we do not anticipate there being any further issues. We are not aware of any significant public health risk having been caused because of this short term problem but of course, we are fully aware of the need to empty the bins regularly, not only from a health point of view but also from an aesthetic point of view and further because of the pride and hard work we put in to ensure this is a lovely facility for all to enjoy.

Essex Youth Offending Service are actively seeking volunteers from the community to help them in their work of preventing re-offending by young people aged between 10 and 17 years.

We are searching for people like you who have skills and are looking to learn new skills that can talk to young people, their parents and sometimes the victim of the offence to draw up a contract to address the young person’s offending behaviour.

The contract is designed to prevent young people from re-offending, but also looks to try to repair the harm caused which can benefit both the victim and the community.

• You would receive full training and support.

• You would be able to fit this role around your existing commitments.

• You would be welcomed in to a friendly and supportive team who care about the community in which they live.

If you are aged over 18, live in Essex and are interested in learning more about this exciting opportunity, please contact Jodie Fenemer at jodie.fenemer@essex.gov.uk or ring on 03330139773
