Calling candidate Zoey MacGregor – come in Zoey MacGregor!

When it’s election time we always have a feature for every candidate in the print copy of the News. But so far, for the local elections on Thursday 2nd May we only have information from 24 out of the 25 candidates – there’s one missing.

So if you know Zoey MacGregor, please ask her to get in touch with the Chippy News so that we can add her to the list.

Thank you in advance!

We’ll put a list of candidates up on the website soon too.

Snow delays rubbish collections

Just a quick note to say that (unsurprisingly) there were no waste collections in the WODC area on Friday 1st February, because of the snow.

Assuming good weather, Friday’s collections will done on Monday. This will have a knock on affect for the rest of the week.

As most of our collections are done on Monday this will directly affect Chippy and surrounding areas. But WODC asks that you please put your bins out as normal and leave them there, as they may be able to get to them on Monday. If not, they’ll be collected on Tuesday.
