Tissington Virtual Well Dressing: Thursday 21st May and Derbyshire Dales Bin Update

Tissington Virtual Well Dressing

Starts on Thursday, 21st May with a recorded service which will premier on YouTube at 11.00am. Due to COVID19 the usual bright, intricate and attractive well dressings will not be done this year. We can’t welcome coaches of visitors, offer hospitality, cram 120 people into St. Mary’s Parish Church, or see the whole village come out to support this large, week-long traditional festival. Here’s the link: https://youtu.be/0VT2fPmPw9E which will be active from the time. (from Tim Morris, Minister Ashbourne Methodists)

Daily bin collections update

The bins situation today (20 May) is that all scheduled household waste and recycling collections are happening, but garden rounds are suspended until further notice and food is being collected fortnightly on the grey bin/black sack rounds.

Our Emergency Committee is meeting on 21 May to discuss what measures need to be put in place to restart garden waste collections. The meeting will be broadcast live on our YouTube channel.

We will let everyone know if this situation changes – sign up for our free bin collection updates here.
