Call to tidy up parts of Studley ahead of Britain in Bloom

Stratford Editorial 4th Mar, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A CALL has been made to tidy up the eyesores of the old Griffin pub and the former Roy’s Bikes in Studley.

The plea was made parish councillor Maureen Rickhards in support of the Studley in Bloom team who are trying to smarten the village up for the Britain in Bloom competition.

“People are getting more and more distressed about these two sites so is there anything we can do as they both look awful,” said Coun Rickhards.

“I would also like to see us have good look at the village and do anything we can to make it look more attractive, especially at the entrances.”

District councillor Hazel Wright said the local authority had a policy for the rehabilitation of derelict sites and it was agreed Stratford should be contacted with a view to getting the two sites improved.

* AN appeal has also been launched for Studley residents to keep an eye out for flytippers after waste asbestos was dumped at the village cemetery.

The clear up operation cost £400 while another flytipping incident at the same location cost another £40 to remove.

Now parish councillors are calling on locals to report anyone flytipping in the area.
