Activities on the Rec. Field During Covid-19

Football Club Training
The 2021/2022 season is in full swing with Chiseldon FC fielding teams at U13, U14, Senior Saturday and Senior Sunday levels. The junior teams train on Saturday mornings at the Chiseldon Recreation Ground with league matches played on Sundays. Training for the senior Saturday and Sunday teams is currently held Wednesday evenings with each team playing matches on its respective day. New players are always welcome for any of the teams, please refer to www.chiseldonfc.co.uk/teams for contact details.

The Club is run by a small number of committed volunteers so additional help, funding via sponsorship, and any feedback is always appreciated. Further details on the Club can be found www.chiseldonfc.co.uk.

Tennis
The LTA’s Covid guidelines were updated on 27 Jan 2022 to reflect the government’s decision to move to Plan A. Although most restrictions on how many people can take part in sport remain, the Club nonetheless still recommends to practice care and social distancing. Whilst not a formal requirement, the Club finds it useful to continue to use WhatsApp as a means of monitoring use of the facilities for members.Non members are welcome to book Pay & Play on court 3 at £10.00 per hour.

Contact Julie Porte on 07753199950 or info@chiseldontennis.co.uk to book the court.

Information on CPR and defibrillators

We had a query over the procedure for finding a defibrillator and CPR if you are on your own with a casualty. There are various website links and pages below to provide you with CPR information. St John’s advice is not to look for the nearest defib if you are on your own – you should wait for the ambulance service to bring one. The advice also provides a Covid safe version.

Local Business

We hope to build up a list of local businesses that may be of service to residents. Please note that inclusion on our list does not constitute an endorsement.

Rubbish, recycling and dog bins

If you come across potentially hazardous waste – needles being an important example – please ring Swindon Borough Council Customer Services on 01793 445501. It can then be dealt with immediately. Swindon Borough Council publishes details of all wheelie bin, garden waste and recycling box collections on their website. Just enter your postcode! View their guidance to what can and can’t go into your garden waste bin in Chiseldon (other areas may differ).

Check missed waste or recycling collections online

We currently successfully complete 99.9% of our waste and recycling collections. However, there are occasions where our crews can’t complete a round due to operational issues, or mistakenly miss a collection. If a collection is not completed on the day it is due to be, please visit our missed collections webpage at the end of the working day to find out when our crews will be back to collect it. If a street or area is not listed please advise residents to report it as a missed collection and the crews will be back asap. They also publish a page listing all of their household waste recycling centres – complete with maps.   The Parish Council provides a total of 16 bins for dog owners to deposit waste from their pets. The following maps show the approximate location of these bins:

Please use these bins to dispose of waste from your pets and help us keep the Parish clean and safe. Dog waste can also be double bagged and put in general waste bins or household waste.
