The Drone Code

The Drone Code

We have received a report of a drone flying at low level and very close to properties in the village on Sunday evening (13th January).

If you know anyone who has a drone please could you make sure that they are aware that it is against the law to fly a drone within 50 meters of people and property and that they are also breaking privacy laws if they film people in private property without their consent. More »

Attached is a copy of the Drone Code - produced by the Civil Aviation Authority, it is a guide to flying drones safely and within the law.

New bins!

New bins!

Two new dog waste bins have been installed in the village, with a third bin on its way. They have been installed at the two most popular suggestions in the survey that the Council ran last year - one is located at the Church Street end of Gravel Path, and the other is further up Church Street at the entrance to Ambleside path. The third bin will be installed near the footpath opposite the school shortly. More »

The bins will be emptied on a weekly basis, 52 weeks a year. Please remember that you can also use the black general waste bins that are dotted around the village for bagged dog waste if you're far from a dog waste bin. Dog waste from your garden should be put in your black household waste bin. » Less
