Waste Services Update from Dorset Council
New guidance from Dorset Council:

Waste services: Important new rubbish and recycling guidance for all Dorset residents

As our waste services begin to feel the pressure from coronavirus (COVID-19)-related employee absence and the need to introduce new safety measures to protect our workforce, we are asking residents to help us by changing the way they deal with their bins, litter and recycling.
We are now implementing the next stage of our plan to keep essential collections going.

  • You do not need to do anything differently on your collection day. Please put the appropriate bins out as you usually would, but note the following: –
  • We will no longer return to empty any missed bins until your next regular collection day. If your bins are missed, please bring them back in. Store your waste safely and put it out on your next appropriate collection day
  • We will pick up extra black bin rubbish only if your previous rubbish collection was missed. We will continue to pick up food waste weekly. You can also put out extra recycling provided it is separated correctly
  • Do not try to report missed collections to us. Visit our service disruption pages online to check if you are in an affected area
  • Remember to crush and flatten items (not glass) before throwing away, as this will help create space in your bins and our collection vehicles. Put your glass box out when it is full
  • Please continue to observe public health guidance on handling your waste. If you have symptoms of coronavirus, please double bag your waste and store for 72 hours before placing in your bin or blue sack.
  • Wash your hands both before putting your bins out and after taking them back in
    We recommend rinsing dirty rubbish and recycling items before placing in bins to reduce unpleasant odours.
  • As we have had to redeploy employees to higher-priority services, our street-cleansing, household recycling centres and recycling banks in car parks have also been suspended. Therefore: –
  • If you go out to exercise, take your litter home with you, especially dog waste. Street and dog bins are not being emptied on a regular basis. NEVER place household waste in a street litter bin
  • Do not travel to a household recycling centre (HRC, or ‘the tip’) or any recycling bank in a car park as these are all now closed and are no longer being serviced. Any items left at these sites will not be cleared away and will be considered as fly-tipping.

Please keep sending me items for the Round Robin and I will send an update version regularly.

Church Services in Wimborne St Giles
Following advice from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, all Church services have been suspended.
However our Church is still open during the day.
Votive candles can still be lit and left in the Church at the front, under the Madonna.
If you need to speak to Robert, our Rector, his details are on the Church notice board or contact Martyn, John or myself.

Village Hall Teas – Cancelled 
As a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, we very much regret that we have had to cancel our weekly fund-raising teas for the foreseeable future.
We hope to open for business as soon as the situation improves but, in the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact:

Church Fete – Postponed
It is with heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the Wimborne St Giles Church fete this year.
It was planned for Saturday 6th June, but we have decided to  ‘wait and see’ what happens with the coronavirus and, hopefully, we can plan something a bit later in the year.
Thank you to those who have already signed up to help—we  will let you know when we decide what and when the next—vital—fundraising event will be  for our much loved Church.
Meanwhile, stay well everyone.
Caroline Barnes
