Reminder that School Lane will be our location for Barton Coronation Street Party on Sunday 7th May 2023.
Cambridgeshire County Council have sent out an email with advice and links for waste disposal:
To help you we have provided a few ideas below along with website links.
- Bring your own plate! Why not bring-your-own-cup and-cutlery, too?
- Make your own decorations or buy reusable ones, making your own decorations can be part of the fun!
- Keep food fresh in containers instead of using clingfilm.
- Use paperless invites to contact people using text, email, or social media.
- After the party, encourage people to take any left-over food home and freeze it ready for another day.

Before recycling, please remember to rinse out all your cans, glass bottles & jars and ensure that paper and cardboard packaging is free from food waste. Packaging that is contaminated with food should not be recycled but put into your refuse bin for disposal. Please also remember to wash and squash your plastic bottles before recycling, (leave the tops on).
