Croxley Green Parish Council have got greener with the purchase of a bicycle.
The bike will be used by staff to inspect footpaths, top up dog-bag dispensers, visit sites that have been reported as having issues by residents and much much more without adding unnecessary mileage and fuel wastage to the works utility vehicle.
It is a green, environmentally friendly, health conscious way of travelling, that promotes the Parish Council’s commitment to a reduced carbon footprint and energy wastage.
Tour de Croxley anyone ?
In response to the ongoing pandemic, Croxley Green Parish Council has set aside over £27,000 into a new Coronavirus earmarked reserve.
Recognising that the Parish Council, as the tier of local government closest to the community, has a responsibility to deliver services that residents need, and that the impact of CoViD-19 will be with us for months, if not years after the immediate crisis, parish councillors voted unanimously to set aside a financial reserve specifically earmarked for the purpose.
A CoViD-19 working group which includes councillors and the wider public has been established to consider options for services that the council may provide. Councillor Nigel Cole, Vice Chair of the council, who facilitates the working group and proposed the creation of the financial reserve commented, "It is right that the Council reacts and does so quickly in order that it may support the community as it recovers from this unprecedented crisis. Setting aside funds as we have, allows us to deliver on our commitment without delay".
So far, the Parish Council has allocated £2300 to produce up to 1000 face coverings which are to be distributed to those who do not already have one and cannot make one themselves.
Do you have any suggestions that could help the community during and after the coronavirus pandemic? Under the terms of the Localism Act 2011 the Parish Council may now do anything that an individual can (the General Power of Competence) so your ideas need not be limited to what it previously has done – the Parish council is always open to good ideas so get in touch.
The government have advised that face coverings are to become compulsory for people using public transport in England from Monday 15 June.
They are already recommended in some enclosed spaces - like public transport and shops - when social distancing (staying more than 2m apart) isn't possible.
have created a useful document on how to make your own face coverings.
If you are not able to make your own mask, there are Local People and Local Companies that are selling face coverings:-
