Welcome to Widdington Parish Council Website - providing local information and notices and minutes of Parish Council Meetings.
Many thanks to the 15 volunteers who turned out on a very pleasant Sunday morning to clean up our village.
We collected 43 bags of assorted rubbish, 3 old tyres, 2 shock absorbers, a washing machine door and a pedestal fan.
A big thanks to Phil Mullenger for driving around in his truck and picking up all of the bags and delivering them to the Village Hall and also for taking the assorted rubbish to the tip.

Important Changes to the Local Bus Service Network in Essex from 10th April 2016
From the 10th April 2016 there will be important changes to many of the routes, timetables and service numbers of bus services in Essex.
Passengers, particularly those using the bus to go to school or work, are strongly recommended to check for the revisions using the National Traveline Service, available at: www.travelinesoutheast.org.uk shortly before undertaking their journey, so that they are aware of any changes that have been made.
The majority of dedicated school contract services, which are not open for use by the general public will not be affected.
Changes to bin collection times from 25 Nov 2015
Uttlesford District Council is advising residents that they may see a change in the collection times of their bins from next week. However, their collection day will remain unchanged.
The council is moving its transfer station activity to a new, purpose-built facility in Great Dunmow from Tuesday, 1 December – this is where bin crews take recycling, food waste and black bin waste before it is sent on for re-processing.
As a result of the move, rounds are likely to be altered. This means some residents will have their bins emptied earlier in the day than they do at present, and some residents will find their bins emptied later in the day.
All residents are reminded that bins must be left at the boundary of their property by no later than 7am on the day of collection. Failure to do so could result in their bins being missed.
This does not impact on the green waste subscription service.
