Kingsway Litter Pick (The Big Tidy Up)

Friday, September 12th, 2014 by Clive

Following the 2013 Litter Pick organised by the Kingsway Residents Association, and having received many enquiries from local folk about a similar exercise, I am pleased to announce that the City Council is working with Quedgeley Parish Council to hold a litter picking event at Kingsway on Monday 27th October at 9:30am.

The event is known as the Big Tidy Up (part of a Keep Britain Tidy campaign), and we are asking for volunteers to join us.

We will meet at 9.30am at Kingsway Community Centre. We will provide high-vis tabards, litter pickers, gloves and bags, and will arrange for the bags to be collected after the event.

Keeping Your Brown Bin Clean

Saturday, December 28th, 2013 by penybont_bach

I see on the Gloucester City Council website that…

“You are now able to line your food caddy with a compostable or bio-degradable bag or liner such as a corn starch bag. Please note however, that crews will not empty food caddies that have been lined with a shopping bag or similar type liner as this is not compostable or bio-degradable. For further information and advice please contact us at heretohelp@gloucester.gov.uk or 01452 396396.”

That will help with keeping the bin clean in the summer…

Javelin Park Incinerator

Monday, August 19th, 2013 by barker77

Here is a copy and paste from a recent email from Glosvain if you are interested in fighting against the incinerator in Javelin Park.

The fight against the Javelin Park Incinerator goes on

A 5-week long Public Inquiry into the Javelin Park Incinerator application has been agreed and will start on 19th November. An Inspector has been appointed to hear the case.   We now urgently need your support again.  You can be part of the Inquiry and help make sure that this application is thrown out for good by taking the following actions:


Please write again saying why you object to this Incinerator by 3rd Sept’ to: Helen Skinner, Case Officer (Quoting ref.: APP/T1600/A/13/2200210)
Email:  Helen.skinner@pins.gsi.gov.uk   OR
Send To: The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/02, Kite Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6PN

Your original planning objection will be forwarded to the Inspector, but this is your chance to add more views about why this incinerator should be stopped.

Please copy us in on your written representation/submission by emailing pr@glosvain.inf. You can also contact us by email if you would like help with your submission.


There will be a special Public Session when members of the public can speak at the Inquiry.  We hope that as many of you as possible will chose to do this.  Please write to Helen Skinner (contact info above) to register your interest, and please let us know too at pr@glosvain.info.

While there is no deadline for this, it would be helpful if you can do it as soon as possible.

If you are unable to attend in the day time, NOTIFY THE CASE OFFICER THAT YOU WOULD LIKE AN EVENING INQUIRY, if sufficient residents request this, one (or more) is usually arranged.


Can you help deliver or hand out leaflets in your area? Do you have any ideas on how to raise public awareness about the incinerator and the Public Inquiry?

If yes, do please email: Diana.Shirley@virgin.net  (or tel’: 01452 810979)

4. Finally: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!

Glosvain needs to raise at least £25,000.00 to cover Inquiry costs for their Advocate and witness etc. The good news is that we have already received over £7,000 in the last couple of weeks so we’re over a quarter of the way there!  Please help the campaign and make a donation:

  • By Paypal via the Glosvain websitewww.glosvain.info OR
  • By Bank Transfer to Gloucestershire Vale Against Incineration: A/C:41283111, Sort Code:40-43-42, OR
  • By Cheque made payable to “Gloucestershire Vale Against Incineration”. Please send to: FAO Graham Smith, Quedgeley Parish Council, 9C The Old School House, School Lane, Quedgeley, Gloucester GL2 4PJ.

Many, many thanks to all the supporters who have already sent donations.

Seagulls and Bins

Monday, August 12th, 2013 by @thatcham

Can whoever is leaving their household waste next to the black bin near to the entrance of the woods along Thatcham Avenue, please use their own household bin?

It has been a number of times now that seagulls have enjoyed the delights of your waste and strewn it all across the usually nice looking green. Not only is this an eyesore and encouraging other vermin into the area, it is showing no respect for locals; even more so when the seagulls are hungry early in the morning!

Litter Pick Poster Competition

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 by Clive

As part of the Community Litter Pick which took place on April 20th, the Kingsway Police Pumas (cadets) were asked to produce poster designs for the event.

The winning entry will be used for future Kingsway Litter pick days, and the winner(s) will also receive a prize from the Residents Association (I won’t spoil the suprise…)!

The following nine entries were received:

Please note that these were scanned from drawings- some of which were A3, so some of the detail doesn’t show up well on these small thumbnails… clicking the pic’s will open printable .pdf doc’s which will allow you to see them much better).

The Residents Association Committee will be meeting on Tuesday 28th May to decide/announce the winner, and local residents are welcome to comment on this post if they have a preference… your votes will be counted (provided that they arrive in time).
Note: The names are (I think) a compilation of the creators, so I numbered each entry to make it easier for you to vote.
