31/3/30: Stay alert to Covid19 scams

Suffolk Constabulary is reminding people to stay alert to criminals looking to continue to exploit the vulnerable during the coronavirus outbreak: https://www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/news/stay-alert-to-covid19-scams/

31/3/20: East Suffolk Council suspends car parking charges
Parking charges in all East Suffolk Council-run car parks have been temporarily suspended to help support our local key workers and community volunteers during the COVID-19 outbreak: https://www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/news/east-suffolk-council-suspends-car-parking-charges/

Bins out by 6am
Our refuse crews are out working hard to collect household waste and recycling bins as scheduled. It is possible crews may come at a different time to usual so please make sure your bin is out for collection by 6am on your normal collection day.

27/3/20: Garden waste collections suspended
In the interests of crew safety and to ensure that household waste and recycling collections are prioritised, East Suffolk Council and East Suffolk Norse have taken the decision to temporarily suspend the collection of garden waste. The final round of garden waste collections will take place tomorrow, Friday 27 March: https://www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/news/garden-waste-collections-suspended/ Councillor Cook's report (link above) indicates that 

"When garden waste collections recommence, subscriptions will be ‘rolled forward’, which means that a new annual payment will only be required once each subscriber has received their full quota of 12 monthly collections."

********************************************************************

Framlingham Town Council is looking for ex Police and Service Personnel to assist with Planning and Logistics for the volunteer effort. Phone: 01728 720183.
