Want to help keep Newport tidy?

Do you, your family or your local group want to help keep Newport tidy by occasional litter picking?

Newport Town Council now have a total of 20 litter pickers that can be loaned out free to anyone who wants to pick up litter around their area or on their regular walks.  If you live in the Newport area or surrounding villages and want to help keep the walkways tidy simply contact the Guildhall and arrange to borrow the equipment. You will be asked to sign that you have had them and return once you have finished.  A regular loan of the pickers can be arranged.

Town Mayor Peter Scott said “I speak to many people who say they litter pick when out and about and I see others picking up litter with their bare hands. This equipment will allow them to pick it up safely and cleanly. My Community Litter Pick Team continue to meet regularly and this idea will allow others to help out on days and times that suit them”.

Anyone interested should call the Guildhall on 01952 814338 or email the Town Clerk via enquiries@newportshropshire-tc.gov.uk

Have you got your census letter?

Households across Telford & Wrekin are being asked to take part in Census 2021.

Census day is on March 21, but households will now be receiving letters with online codes explaining how they can complete their forms. If you don’t get one in the next couple of weeks, please get in touch with the census contact centre. You can also request a paper questionnaire if you’d prefer to complete your census that way.

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.

For more information, and to find out how to get help, visit census.gov.uk or call the contact centre on 0800 141 2021.
