The Parish Council were succesful in obtaining a small grant from the Tesco Bags of Help Fund last August.

This has enabled the Parish Council to purchase a new replacement bench, for Hollywood Lane, made from recycled plastic, and two new Parish Council Noticeboards, with signage, one of which has been relocated from the rear of Drakes Cross shops to in front of the One Stop Shop and the other is on the corner of Silver Street.

The new noticeboard at Drakes Cross is already being well used by local groups.

Worcestershire County Council Street Lighting Energy Saving Initiative

County Council agreed, following a succesful trial period in Droitwich, to reduce both spend and CO2 emissions by carrying our part night switch off of two out of three lights in mostly residential areas.

 

Part night switch off refers to the period midnight to 6am only and areas such as major trafic routes are exempt from the plans.

 

This approach will save the taxpayer £500,000 per year and significantly reduce CO2 emissions.

 

Please see link to map of affected locations in Wythall below:
