Refuse and recycling info

The Slingsby Village website keeps you up-to-date with everything that’s happening in and around Slingsby. We like to bring you the good news stories. Occasionally, however, we have no option but to dish the dirt!

So, in response to public demand, we now launch your very own Refuse and Recycling page.

The new website page should include everything you need to know on refuse and recycling, including a calendar of forthcoming collection dates.

Councils up and down the land are relying ever more on online services. Ryedale District Council has said that residents will no longer receive information tags (previously attached to wheeled bins). Of course this does not suit everyone.

So, we will aim to ensure that relevant information on refuse and recycling changes and collection dates is also published in the good old-fashioned Triangle newsletter!

For the moment, the key points are:

BROWN BIN (garden waste) COLLECTIONS RESTART ON MONDAY 3 MARCH.

FROM JUNE 2014 THE BROWN BIN SERVICE WILL BE CHARGEABLE.

Much more on the Refuse and Recycling page.

High-speed fibre broadband in Slingsby

Website image

I have been informed by the Superfast North Yorkshire project that high-speed fibre is now available to homes and businesses in Slingsby. Well, theoretically at least! All the necessary technical infrastructure work has been done to upgrade our cabinet but not all internet service providers are yet taking orders for fibre products. As far as I can make out at present, Primus and TalkTalk are now ready to take orders. Others ISPs should follow soon.

If your ISP has user-friendly customer service, you may wish to enquire about this now. Or you may prefer to hold back, to see if they make you an offer.

More info at www.superfastnorthyorkshire.com

I shall seek clarification from the Project team and pass on further information as soon as I have it. Watch this space!

Website Server Upgrade Work

roadworks

The server that the village website resides on will be undergoing some upgrade work on March 7th. This important work will update important server software and will provide the website with better security and performance improvements.

Access to the village website may be disrupted as the upgrade work takes place. Hopefully the disruption will be kept to a minimum but it is possible that the website may be unavailable for a few hours.

Status updates will be posted on the village Facebook page should there be any upgrade delays or problems.

Missing kitten FOUND!

This kitten has now been FOUND.

Have you seen this kitten? We have received the following message from worried kitten-owner Jennie Smith. Please read it and help if you can.

Hello
I was wondering if you could ask everyone to be vigilant. Our tortoiseshell kitten has been missing since 7am Sunday 2nd February. She is about 8 months old and is very small for her age. She normally just wonders around our garden and sometimes covers a small area of the High Street and never is out more than 30 minutes at a time. She has also been micro chipped.
Please please could anyone give us any useful information if they have seen her, or know what has happened to her. We are all obviously very worried and upset
Thank you
Jennie Smith
