Keeping Allington Tidy

Litter Picking

Andy Lowes, Mike Sharp and Guy Dickson on litter picking duty.

The amount of rubbish thrown from car windows is staggering. The Allington Playing Field Fundrasiers have been cleaning up the roads leading into the village. In a short time they filled a van full of discarded litter. Andy Lowes was instrumental in organising  activities. Thanks must also go to SKDC for supplying bags and agreeing to collect the accumulated waste.

Collingham 3 Allington 2

SAM_1381Allington’s first foray into competitive walking football ended in defeat at Collingham on Friday evening. Nonetheless there was much to be pleased about. Allington fell behind early in the game and despite going 2 – 0 down started to find their rhythm as the match progressed. At the interval the score was 3 – 1 so it really was a game of two halves as Allington dominated the second period, scoring and pressing hard for the equaliser towards the end.

Allington Hall C1900

These photos have been sent in by Anne Varley from Somerset. They are believed to show Allington Hall around 1900. They feature some of Anne’s relatives. Ann Jackson is now investigating. In the meantime if anyone can shed any light on them please let us know.

The pictures can be seen in higher resolution on The Allington Flickr account.

FixMyStreet

If you are fed up with potholes, litter and other issues that your local council should be attending to its a good idea to report it. However, it’s not always easy to know who is the responsible authority . Not everyone realises that the County Council looks after roads, the District Council manages litter and that sometimes they do things for each other. That’s where FixMyStreet can help.

If you follow the link above you will be taken to the FixMyStreet website where you can report issues like potholes, graffiti, and fly tipping. If you want to know  what is being reported locally look down the right hand side of our home page. You will see the latest issues within a 10 km radius of Allington.
