IMPORTANT NEWS - Plastic Recycling
Chelmsford City Council will no longer be supplying residents with additional rolls for recycling. In response to the climate and ecology emergency declared in July 2019, they have loooked at areas where we can eliminate or reduce single-use plastics within their organisation. The decision was made to no longer issue outposts with rolls of plastic recycling bags with immediate effect. They will continue to deliver a roll of plastic sacks to each household once a year.
Dog foul bags will also no longer be issued. Part of being a responsible dog owner is picking up your dog's waste. Once the limited supply of bags held by the Parish Council at the Keene Hall has gone there will be no more.

POLICE, FIRE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER - MAKE A DIFFERENCE
An important part of the role of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner is to engage with residents and communities of Essex and give people a voice in terms of policing, fire and other community safety issues. Over the next few months the PFCC will be showing residents how their views have made a difference as well as asking them to #MakeADifference and say what they want from their police force over the next four years. A link to the survey is here https://www.essex.pfcc.police.uk/make-a-difference/. Hard copies will be available in local libraries and other public buildings.
