Opening of the Play Areas in the Parish

Opening of the Play Areas in the Parish                     

As play areas are now allowed to reopen, Worcester City Council will be working their way around all the play areas across the City. It will take time to clean and assess the play equipment to ensure it is safe to use, so please be patient whilst this work is carried out.

In the meantime, some of the younger members of the parish have been busy producing posters to remind people not to litter the play area at Trotshill Lane East.

Poster Competition

Some of you may, whilst out exercising have become aware of an increased level of dog fouling in the Parish. A couple of local residents and their families were so disgusted about the level of fouling in Racefield Meadow area, their children decided to take action by creating some posters and pinning them up, reminding dog walkers to clean up and dispose of their dog’s waste responsibly. (As appeared in Worcester News 1st & 3rd April).

To try and combat this trend the Parish Council would like other young members of the community to design a poster, which could be put up in different locations in the Parish.

This is one of the fabulous poster entries we have received so far (created by Kelly – age 14).

Further entries can be submitted to

Speed Indicator Display (SID)

The Parish has invested in a new Speed Indicator Display (SID) which is slightly different to the one being used currently.  It shows the speed of motorists and indicates, by use of a smiley or angry face, whether they are under or over the speed limit.

Hopefully, as residents, you will only ever see the SMILEY face!

This machine has the ability to collect data on offenders and show which times of day the offence(s) take place it’s also possible to connect this to Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) in the future!

Responsible Waste Disposal

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER…. particularly important in the current circumstances with the waste recycling centres being closed.
1. Never accept unsolicited offers to have garden, household or construction waste taken away.
2. Expect to pay a reasonable fee – the fees that legitimate waste carriers have to pay to dispose of waste are not cheap. An unusually low quote should be treated with suspicion.
3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – you have a duty of care to take reasonable steps to prevent someone else dumping your waste unlawfully.
4. Ask for details of their waste carrier registration, a legitimate, professional waste carrier should not object to being asked reasonable questions.
5. You can check if they are registered waste carriers by searching online, the Environment Agency’s public register of waste carriers or by calling 03708 506 506.
6. Record the vehicle registration numbers of any vehicle used by a private waste carrier to take your waste away. The waste carrier may be less likely to illegally dump your waste if he is aware that his vehicle registration and details have been recorded and that he can be traced.
7. Ask for a proper invoice and receipt. Never pay cash. A legitimate waste carrier will be happy to accept card payments.
