EMBERTON NEWS AND EVENTS
PARISH COUNCIL NEWS from the October 2018 Meeting
WW1 COMMEMORATIVE BENCH – Residents may have seen the images on social media of the steel WW1 commemorative benches similar to the one below. The parish council is in the process of procuring a grant to enable one of these benches to be purchased. Unfortunately, due to the 8-10 week delivery time and the timescale for the grant, the bench will not be in place for Armistice Day.
WEED SPRAYING – Unfortunately, the contractor (Marcus Young Landscapes) that was due to undertake weed control in Emberton has advised that his company is no longer able to fulfill this service. An alternative contractor is therefore being sought.
GULLY CLEANING – Milton Keynes Council will be undertaking gully cleaning in Emberton during the month of November. Please note: if any vehicles are parked over the drain covers on the day, the gully cleaning vehicle will not be able to clean the gully and will move on to the next available drain. The vehicle will not revisit the site. There should be a distance of 2m clearance on either side of the drain to allow the equipment to access the drain.
