Message to residents from AVDC

Due to the forecast of extremely low temperatures overnight, we anticipate that icy and snow-blocked roads are likely to make our recycling and waste collections dangerous.

For this reason, we've reluctantly decided to cancel collections on Tuesday 12 December, and to make the following changes to our normal collection schedule:


  • Tuesday’s collections will be collected on Wednesday
  • Wednesday’s collections will be collected on Thursday
  • Thursday’s collections will be collected on Friday
  • Friday’s collections will be collected on Saturday

It's very rare that we have to make changes like these but, in the current extreme weather conditions, public and staff safety must remain our priority.


Please note, there’s a possibility that should the weather get worse, there’s a chance we may have to revise these changes again but we are hopeful that we’ll be able to make the collections as detailed above.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

- Table Tennis -
We are looking for new blood and you may be looking for sociable ways to keep fit and lose weight. So here's an idea. Table tennis is energetic and straightforward to learn if you have never tried it. Beginners and more advanced players are welcome to our informal weekly sessions in the Village Hall, 6.30-8.00pm on Tuesdays, equipment supplied. No ongoing commitment is required and at only £2 a session, it is worth giving it a go. Start the year as you mean to go on. You may find that it is one resolution you won't break!'
