Anti-social behaviour

I have been asked by the Stronger Communities Co-ordinator – Doncaster MBC, for people to report any anti-social behaviour  straight to the police. It is so sad that Tesco Field (Far Field) is being developed for the youngsters to have fun and has taken into account all ages groups, yet some seem to be adamant that it should be damaged. Fences are constantly being pulled down and equipment broken. This is delaying the job.

The school summer holidays are  almost here (such an exciting feeling which I still remember from my childhood) for playing out, having fun and spending time with friends and family.  Please encourage your youngsters to enjoy their time out and about, stay safe and don’t break things. The time, effort and money spent on this scheme has been huge and we are so lucky.

If you are unfortunate enough to still witness anti-social behaviour in any of our areas of the village, please report immediately to police or DMBC tel: 01302 736000 who are also available 24/7.



Thank you to local business.

Huge thanks go to local business  – Doncaster Vehicle Spares, Doncaster Rd, Kirk Sandall for their very generous donation of a Platinum leisure battery.

Fred, Dave & Anne were all set to bowser the planters in the village, except the battery (despite being on charge) was flat, flat, flat! The planters were in desperate need of watering so  a phone call to Doncaster Vehicle Spares  was made to see if a suitable battery (which powers the water motor), was in stock.  Good news, battery in stock and even better news followed. They wanted to donate the battery to Edenthorpe Parish Council, as it is to be used for the benefit of the village of Edenthorpe.

Thank you Doncaster Vehicle Spares. You have made our day!




Litter pick

New date announced!

At our Parish Council meeting last night, members organised the next date for a litter pick to take place in Edenthorpe. The one held in March was well attended and very successful. This was followed by Tesco, Edenthorpe doing their own litter pick. I wonder if Sainsbury’s will follow the example.

Our next litter pick will be held on Thursday August 30th 2018. All volunteers welcome, equipment will be provided. Please meet in Tesco overflow car park at 1pm. Thank you.

Litter Pick

Successful Litter Pick 29.3.18

Please click on the link above.

Thank you to those who volunteered on Thursday afternoon to litter pick around Edenthorpe. A total of 38 bags of rubbish were collected. Our village is looking so much better. Hopefully the message will be clear to all – Don’t drop your rubbish, take it home with you!

The blue bins should help with the recycling collections too. No longer will items be blown from the green boxes around the streets, as these are now  just for glass.

Happy Easter to you all.
