Have your say - Edging back of overgrown vegetation and overgrowth on footpaths

Have your say - Edging back of overgrown vegetation and overgrowth on footpaths

Leicestershire County Council have a Highways Parish Fund that has become available following the recent pandemic; a small amount of money has been allocated to the parish to use to fund improvements on the network, providing they are safe. The stipulation required to be successful for the application is that the project must support social distancing and active travel.

Edging back of overgrown vegetation and overgrowth on footpaths is a request that hasn't been granted by County Council due to funding and man power. This has been an issue for many years, despite the many requests made by the Parish Council on behalf of the community. More »

Taking the footpaths back to the original width, to create more space and cutting back hedges would make walking around the villages much safer and easier to adhere to social distancing.

If you would like to request a location regarding the above attention please send your request through to clerk@breedonparishcouncil.org.uk by 20th September 2020. » Less

EMA Volunteer Opportunity - National 'Keep Britain Tidy' Campaign - Sunday 20th September 2020 - Airport Trail litter pick

On Sunday 20th September East Midlands Airport is organising a litter pick along the airport trail as part of the 'Great British September Clean' – a national week of litter-picking activities promoted by national charity - Keep Britain Clean.

We are collaborating with our local communities and volunteer groups, including the North Leicestershire Litter Wombles, to pull together a team who will clear away the litter that has gathered around the trail over the last six months. More »

Our 10km airport trail, which follows the perimeter fence, is a wonderful resource for people who enjoy a good walk, as well as those who love to 'plane spot' at our picnic area. Sadly a small minority of those who use the trail have been leaving behind litter. We are calling on all friends of East Midlands Airport, both our colleagues and those living in our local communities, to come and support us on the day. A briefing will take place at 10am – all equipment will be provided – if you are interested in registering to support the event – even as little as an hour could make a bit difference - or for more information please email community@eastmidlandsairport.com » Less
