Giving Away: 2 x 1000 litre water storage tanks

2 x 1000 litre water storage tanks. If anybody would like one or both of these, please help yourself. They are both in good working order (no leaks). They are rather bulky and heavy, so will need to be transported via a trailer. Located outside 26 Kings Road, North Luffenham.

Dog mess once again !!

North Luffenham Parish Council has yet again had complaints about dog mess on paths and from residents who have open plan front lawns within the village.

The majority of dog owners are responsible but for those who think it doesn’t matter dog mess is offensive and a health hazard, especailly for children.
