Important Information to prevent Landfill Fires

Tuesday, September 19, 2017|

Viridor have given Castle Cary Town Council some information regarding the prevention of fires in landfill.

They have done some proactive work with Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service to draw the public’s attention to how these fires may start through putting the “usual suspects” in their bins. Here are links to the news items in case you missed them:
BBC Points West: https://youtu.be/yB58iEO5tJ8
ITV Westcountry: https://youtu.be/gEb3Gi_q5Kg
Somerset Live: http://www.somersetlive.co.uk/news/somerset-news/dimmer-landfill-site-management-issue-413762

Viridor work closely with the educational trust Carymoor Environmental Trust which celebrated it’s 21st birthday recently. More than 100 schools from across Somerset visit the site each year to see the landfill site and learn of ways to reduce waste, as well as exploring some of the created habitats.

We have advertised a number of our own and other people’s classes in the Shambles at the Market House for this term and now need to update you.

Creative Writing with Emma Craigie, Wednesdays 6pm – 8pm starts on 13 September. There are three spaces left; so take action quickly if you want to join.

French Conversation with Denise Magill was to have been on Thursdays, 6.30 – 8pm, but sadly we do not have enough students. Do let us know if you are interested as we hope to start it at a later date.

The Film Buff one-off sessions have been rescheduled. The first is on Thursday 19 October, and will look at Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”. See separate details.

All SS&L (Somerset Skills and Learning) classes have been postponed because of funding problems. They were offering Painting and Drawing, and Breadmaking at the Market House. Do let us know if you were interested in either of these.

Please ring 01963 351461 to express an interest in any of these courses.

Thursday, August 24, 2017|

If you have problems please phone Nippy Bus 01935 823888
Latest update on the 667 Nippy bus route for the next three weeks, whilst the B3153 is closed at Alford. (From 23rd August until approx. 11th September) There will be an update shortly on http://Www.nippybus.co.uk

There will not be a service along the B3153 between Lydford and Castle Cary. Instead, the bus will go up the A37, cut through Ditcheat and Alhampton then back onto the A371 and into Castle Cary, and vice versa….this will add about 20minutes to the journey time.
