Bottle and Paper Banks

Please use these facilities when you can as the recycling payments received by ORAC help your Village Hall. If banks are getting full, please report them to Committee & Support

If the banks are full, please do not leave paper or bottles on the ground as this is can not only attract rats but ORAC have been threatened with fly-tipping if it occurs!!

Dogs

ORAC has found it necessary to reinstate the ban on dogs being allowed onto the Playing Field. We had hoped that dog-owners would act responsibly in controlling their dogs and in clearing up any fouling which takes place. Reports show us that this has not been the case. Therefore it should be noted that:

Dogs are not allowed anywhere on the playing field. Where dogs are taken along the footpath at the back of the Village Hall, please ensure that they are kept under control, and that any dog fouling is removed and placed in the bins provided around the village (or otherwise disposed of).
