The first step is to understand the level of demand for a scheme within the parish, so please fill out our survey at https://tinyurl.com/3cfafdp2 (hard copies available from the Parish Centre) and tell us what you think. If you fancy getting involved, email Karen Phiminster at email@example.com.
Don’t delay in signing up for a survey (email firstname.lastname@example.org) as it’s on a first come first serve basis, although we will give preference to residents for Chalford Parish (includes Bussage, Brownshill and France Lynch of course). Funded with support from the GCC Build Back Better Fund. For further information have a look at our Energy Saving Leaflet
Gloucestershire Recycles have launched their latest campaign ‘Food Waste – It All Adds Up’.
Both the environmental and financial costs of food waste are huge. About 55,000 tonnes of domestic food waste were created in the county last year and 137,500 tonnes of CO2 are created producing and transporting this food. The average 4 person household could save £60 a month by reducing food waste.

- Recycling and composting any food waste that you can’t avoid.

Access Bike Project Monthly Bike Ride
Into Stroud from Brimscombe: Saturday 2nd September 2023. This ride to the market takes place every first Saturday of the month from The Long Table at Brimscombe Mill. Meet at 10am for a chat and a drink (thanks to The Bike Drop), before leaving at 10.30am to ride along the A419 into Stroud and finishing at The Electric Bike Shop Stroud at about 11am. This is a group ride, protecting young and less confident riders. The idea is to have fun and to push for better cycle infrastructure along this route and around the district!
