There’s a chance to give the village a spring clean when councillors and residents take part in the annual litter pick. On Wednesday 15th April at 6pm. Litter pickers are invited to meet at the Malt Kiln where they will be given hi-viz vests, protective gloves and bags. Areas of the village will be allocated to willing volunteers – and there’s a free buffet afterwards for those taking part. If you can’t help out on that day, residents are asked to make an effort to remove weeds and litter from around their own homes.

If you want to influence what our local beat team focuses on in the next three months, complete Notts Police’s online Neighbourhood Priority Survey. Together with meetings with residents and community feedback, the results of the surveys are used to help local beat teams set their priorities. Completed anonymously, the survey asks you to explain what concerns you have about criminal activity where you live. It asks for information about a range of concerns, including antisocial behaviour, speeding, street drinking, nuisance vehicles and other criminal activity. You can give information about your concerns and the days and times incidents are happening. You can also pinpoint exactly where the problems are, with a marker on a map. So, to have your say on policing in your area, go to www.neighbourhoodprioritysurvey.co.ukwww.neighbourhoodpriorit-ysurvey.co.uk . Paper copies of the survey are available at The Misterton Centre.
