Recycling & Refuse Collections Bank Holiday Changes 

Garden waste collections will not take place Monday 25 December – Friday 5 January, resuming from Monday 8 January 2018 on usual days.

 Decoration-free natural Christmas trees under 6ft should be composted: Take to your local recycling site or, if you pay for garden waste collections, put them out on your usual garden waste collection day from 8 January. (As a very last resort you can send your tree for landfill burial. Place next to your refuse bin on your usual collection day between 8 - 19 January 2017).

 Recycling centres are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Open all other days on their usual schedule. Vehicle permit conditions apply as usual over the festive season. All recycling sites accept only debit or credit card payments for disposal of soil, hardcore, tyres, gas bottles, vehicle parts and commercial waste, and to purchase Revive compost. Asbestos and plasterboard disposal is by online pre-payment. Crewkerne and Dulverton community recycling sites’ £2 entry fees are by cash.

Timberscombe School Needs You!

We are delighted to announce that we will be part of the

TESCO 'Bags of help' scheme during July and August.

Please read about our much needed project below and PLEASE ask for the

blue tokens when you shop and support our hard working village school.

WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!

We would like to be able to extend one of our two main classrooms due to

a growing number of pupils within Timberscombe School.

Over the past 5 years the headcount has nearly doubled, which is fantastic news for our school, however we are beginning to struggle with the space to support this.

We are hoping to make alterations to an existing covered area to incorporate a greenhouse effect within the existing classroom, giving children the opportunity to be actively involved in planting, maintaining and harvesting, witnessing the life cycle from seed to harvest.We feel this will reinforce nutrition using the classroom as a laboratory for learning.We also believe that understanding how food is grown inspires curiosity and expands a childs willingness to try new foods.In order to make this area the best it can be, we are hoping to win your vote and secure the funds to give the young children of Timberscombe School this fantastic opportunity.

Please support us!

Voting starts 1st July and ends 31st August

Thank you for your support.
