Annual Parish Meeting

The annual Parish meeting will take place on Monday 8th April 2024 at 8pm.

This will take place in the Jubilee Room of the village hall.

This is a good opportunity to come and meet your village representatives and put across any ideas you have for the village or just pop in for a cuppa.

We will also have the Neighbourhood Plan and proposed play area designs on show


Dunholme Parish Council


The Parish Council are starting to look at how to make the village “greener” with more recycling options available.

Most of us want to do our bit for the environment, especially when it comes to recycling and really there is no excuse when it comes to paper, cardboard, glass, plastic pots etc – all of which can be disposed of in the appropriate wheelie bin.

But what about those items that have to be taken to a far-away drop off point, not to mention disposables that we all accumulate but don’t know what to do with?  Everyone has a drawer full of old pens that will never see the light of day again.  Then there are medical blister packs made of plastic and foil, which cannot be recycled in household waste.  Our family generates a carrier bag full of the pesky things every month, so imagine how much Dunholme is collectively sending to landfill!


With this in mind we are planning to provide a community facility for harder-to-recycle items.   To begin with there will be a drop off point in the Village Hall entrance for the following items:

Medical Blister Packs – please ensure that all medication has been removed

Writing instruments – includes ballpoints, markers, felt tips and mechanical pencils

Batteries – all household batteries, including “button” watch batteries

Inkjet cartridges -  any brand,  but no laser / toner cartridges

The packs and pens will be sent for recycling into such things as playground surfaces, car components and packaging.   The cartridges will raise funds for St Chad’s Primary School.

Please get in touch if you have any ideas for other harder-to-recycle items that we could collect, the only conditions being that they are not bulky or smelly – so no Pringles boxes or Babybel wrappers – yes, there really are organisations that will take these!

If you would like any further information, please contact
