New Litter Bin - River View

The litter bin located at the entrance to the Village Green disappeared in mysterious circumstances some time ago. Where did it go?

Since the county council wouldn't pay for a replacement, Ovingham Parish Council agreed to buy one. In the photo, Cllr. Richard Benjamin is seen testing it out with its first bit of litter. The bin can quite properly be used for bagged dog poo.

OPC also agreed to provide a completely new one at the entrance to the field which leads up to Whittle Dene just off Horsley Road. This one will be installed soon and it is planned to fix both bins up with a dispenser for free poo-bags ... so no excuses now!
