Garden recycling collections to resume in Newark and Sherwood

The service was temporarily suspended so the vehicles could be used to maintain the vital household waste and recycling collections to allow for the waste crews to keep safe social distancing. The Council has now been able to source additional vehicles so that the garden waste service can resume.

Customers are asked to leave their brown garden waste bin out by 6am on its usual collection day as set out on their calendar. Bins should not be overfilled or contaminated with food or domestic household items.

Stickers should be clearly placed on each bin as only bins with stickers will be collected. Waste crews will be unable to take side waste.

Councillor David Lloyd, Leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “We thank residents for their patience and the support they have shown to our waste crews while they worked hard to prioritise household waste and recycling collections.

“We are continually reviewing our services, with the safety of our colleagues remaining our absolute priority. With up to 13,000 customers using our garden recycling service it has not been possible to continue this alongside the measures we have had to put in place to keep the vital household waste and recycling collections running by doubling the lorries used for each round. However we have now successfully sourced additional vehicles so that the garden recycling service can resume for residents in Newark and Sherwood from Monday 1 June.”

Residents can sign up to the service, which costs £35 per year (1 April to 31 March), or order an additional bin by visiting the Council website here: https://www.newark-sherwooddc.gov.uk/gardenrecycling/. Residents can also check their brown bin collection day using the calendar.

Customers who renewed or signed up to the service while it was temporarily suspended will be entitled to a reduced subscription for the following year 2021/22.

Nottinghamshire County Council Country Parks

Car parks at most of the County Council’s country parks and green spaces will reopen from tomorrow (Saturday 16 May) following recent Government advice.

This includes Rufford Abbey Country Park, Holme Pierrepont Country Park- home of the National Water Sports Centre, Bestwood Country Park, Cotgrave Country Park and car parks attached to 1,900 hectares of green spaces the Council manages.

Egmanton flood defence scheme

Email received from Neil Kemble:

By way of an update, I can confirm that we have received tenders, evaluated them and obtained Board approval to the appointment of a preferred contractor.  The appointment process is in hand and once signed up, I can let you know which contractor is in contract.

In consultation with the Board, we are recommending a start date of 13 July 2020.  There are several reasons including COVID-19 precautions, however the main reason is that there is a badger to relocate and the earliest that we can do this is 21 July.  Legislation makes working round the badger difficult, especially as the better material for embankment construction is embargoed by the badger location.

The contract period is 12 weeks and, looking at the draft construction programme, the embankment should be viable by around the end of week 10.

We will be in touch again when the contractor is appointed.

Jean Margaret Spencer

I am trying to locate a Jean Margaret Spencer who used to live at Egmanton common farm in the 1980’s. Does anyone know jean or remember her. It was her Mother’s place, Evely Margaret (Meg) Wraith. Meg died in 1983. Jean is related to my Sister and I’m trying to get them in touch. I know this is probably a long shot. If you can be of help that would be much appreciated. Sincerely, John (Strevens)

If you have any information then please email John directly at john@josthomes.com

COVID-19 & The Church

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close.

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

The Southwell Diocese website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.

The churchwarden of this church can be contacted in an emergency or if you have questions or problems or need contacts by telephoning 01777 872114 or emailing christopher.mht11®mypostoffice.co.uk

This benefice of which St. Mary's (Our Lady of Egmanton) forms part, will in another week's time I. e. Monday 13th April 2020 become "inter regnum" (between vicars). Last year the Rev. Philip Howson left to look after a group of parishes in the Diocese of Ely and then the Rev. Anna Alls took over a group of parishes including Burton Joyce, Notts. Finally the Rev. Zoe Burton leaves our group of 12 parishes after Easter taking up a new position and being based at Rainworth and Blidworth. All our parishes are waiting for a review to decide if we are to be split into smaller groups and as we are very varied, to look at each church before deciding our
future. Any input would be welcomed.

'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength... Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these."

Please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

Nottinghamshire County Council Coronavirus Support

Nottinghamshire County Council are coordinating the Hub for the whole of Nottinghamshire, both for volunteers and those in need of help. This is by way of a telephone number to our customer care centre, which is 0300 500 8080 - they will be able to give you any help and advice.

Their website may be helpful too:


It has a page specifically for volunteers and volunteer groups with helpful guidance: https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/care/coronavirus/nottingham-and-nottinghamshire-community-support-and-volunteering-hub

COVID-19 briefing update for Parish/Town Councils

As Leader of the Council, I have been undertaking to keep our Councillors abreast of developments on a regular basis. These have taken the form of emails, daily or twice-daily, but as and when there have been significant developments. I am now aware that some of our Councillors are self-isolated or committed to voluntary activities and so might not be able to relay relevant information to you as speedily as they would prefer so some Councillors have asked that I send a direct email to Parish Councils with information that is pertinent and relevant to you. I am grateful therefore to colleagues for producing a punchier version of my messages to be sent to you. Hopefully these will give you information to disseminate and/or keep you up-to-date. 

These do not replace or overlay direct messages from HART - our community response team - as they work with you on the crucial food, medicine and care requirements ahead of us. 

May I please take this opportunity, on behalf of all Councillors and colleagues, to congratulate and thank you all for the speed, focus and cooperation that you are bringing to localising and caring for our communities. The task ahead, not least of coordinating activities, is not a straightforward one but it is a measure of proper recognition for you all that you are in many ways ahead of the game, and geared up for the weeks ahead. It is nothing short of exemplar of the vitality and altruism of our communities. 

So .... thank you! For all you have done, are doing with us, and will be doing going forward. 

I hope that these additional updates are of some use. We are taking the view that we must convey as much information as possible rather than assuming what might or might not interest people.

With regards,


Cllr David Lloyd
Leader, Newark & Sherwood District Council
Councillor for the Newark Beacon Ward

Daily COVID-19 update

Parish Councils

You may be concerned that you are currently unable to hold meetings including upcoming Annual Parish Meetings / Annual Council Meetings. Clearly the national focus is now on providing vital support for vulnerable people in our communities. Government advice is you simply rearrange these Meetings for when the country is over this public health crisis. The District Council is taking a similar approach with all meetings, with the exception of Planning and Policy & Finance Committee meetings, being cancelled. The limited meetings which will go ahead will be done on a remote basis to enable Councillors to remain at home.

As a Parish, you may wish to still consult with your Councillors to form views on planning applications or to seek consent for some financial expenditure etc. Our advice is that you undertake such consultations by phone and/or email and use any existing delegation arrangements and urgency provisions you may have adopted within your Parish.

NSDC Services

In line with the latest Government advice, NSDC is regrettably closing more of its buildings and facilities to help people keep a safe distance and reduce the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19). From Wednesday 25th March, the following facilities will be closed to members of the public:

  • All play parks
  • Castle House, Newark (DWP will continue to provide a limited service at Castle House for their most vulnerable customers)
  • Hawtonville Local Office, Newark

  • Southwell Advice Centre, Southwell Library
  • The Buttermarket, Newark
  • Sherwood Forest Arts & Craft Centre, Edwinstowe
  • Newark Beacon Business Centre, Newark
  • Public conveniences at The Gilstrap, Newark

However, NSDC Customer Services will remain open as normal to help residents with enquiries, prioritising critical enquiries, via phone: 01636 650 000 or email: customerservices@nsdc.info

For customers with complex needs who are unable to use these contact methods, we will have procedures in place to provide services to them via their carer/ nominated representative on a case by case basis.

New bookings for bulky waste collection are also being suspended although existing bookings will continue to be collected. Green, silver and brown bins will still be emptied as normal.

NSDC car parks and Newark lorry park will remain open as normal.

Building Control (which is a shared service) will now only visit dangerous structures or other extreme situations and all site inspections have been suspended.

Business Grants

By the end of this week, NSDC will be issuing £10,000 and £25,000 grants to eligible businesses as part of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) support package as follows:

  • £10k grant per business in receipt of Small Business Rates Relief and Rural Rates Relief
  • £10k grant per business (if they do not qualify for the £10k above) in the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Sector with rateable value of £15k or less as of 11March 2020
  • £25k grant per business in the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Sector with a rateable value of more than £15k but under £51k at 11March 2020

Businesses with a rateable value of £51k or over are not eligible for this scheme but may be eligible for assistance via the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan fund.

Deferring VAT and Income Tax Payments

We will support businesses by deferring Valued Added Tax (VAT) payments for three months. If you’re self-employed, Income Tax payments due in July 2020 under the Self-Assessment system will be deferred to January 2021.

For VAT, the deferral will apply from 20 March 2020 until 30 June 2020.

For more information about Business Support:


NSDC staff working arrangements

Following the Prime Minister’s briefing last night which included guidance about only attending work if “absolutely necessary”, we have now developed the following working from home arrangements for all staff.

With effect from Wednesday 25th March, all NSDC staff will be working from home (on a rota basis) with the exception of a limited number who will be required to form a core team of essential workers in office. This team will comprise a very limited number of the Senior Leadership Team, Business Managers and employees who have been identified by their business managers.
