Bottle Bank at the Village Hall

Bottle Bank at the Village Hall

The bottle bank in the Village Hall carpark is overflowing and is in desperate need of emptying. The bottle bank should be emptied by Glass Recycling Ltd ( tel 01226 727298) but it appears they are well behind schedule with many of our neighbouring villages suffering similar problems. The reason given is that following BREXIT they can't get enough drivers. For safety everyone and particularly mum's keep your little ones away as there are one or two broken bottles with broken glass litering the carpark. More »

Please don't leave any more bottles until it has been emptied. The collection vehicle will NOT pick up any bottles not in the containers and they will not empty them if their vehicle cannot get alongside. We will update this article once the bank has been emptied.

Stop Press:- Glass Recycling Ltd are hoping to get to empty our containers on Friday - anyone in the VH carpark are asked to just help move a few bottles to one side so the vehicle can get access. As Tesco would say - "every little helps" » Less

Covid-19 Infection Rates

Dear readers,

It has come to my attention that one or two readers have concerns regarding the Covid data and graph provided in the latest newsletter so I think its appropriate to clarify this.

The data is taken directly off the Government Website so strictly speaking it is accurate. That said there needs to be a little interpretation of the data. As mentioned in the newsletter the Government uses a rate per 100,000 so with a small village such as Beckingham any small increase has a large effect when scaled up. Secondly the Government use postcodes and not specific villages so the DN10 postcode includes Clarborough, Gringley and Misterton as well as Beckingham. Thirdly the Government does not give any rates per 100,000 if the infections for an area are below three so these have to be interpreted. As low numbers show very low figures this isn't a problem for Beckingham. In future I will amend any graph to be more relevant to our village
