Coun­cil­lor pays for bin

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A new grit bin has been in­stalled in Rus­sell Court, Che­sham, thanks to county coun­cil­lor Mark Shaw. RES­I­DENTS are pre­pared for icy weather thanks to a coun­cil­lor fork­ing out for a new grit bin.

A bin has been in­stalled in Rus­sell Court, Che­sham, thanks to county coun­cil­lor Mark Shaw pay­ing £450 out of his com­mu­nity lead­ers’ fund.

Bucks County Coun­cil will en­sure the grit bin is al­ways full dur­ing pe­ri­ods of bad weather.

Mr Shaw said: “After be­ing ap­proached by res­i­dents shortly after be­ing elected to the county coun­cil, over their con­cerns that dur­ing bad weather they didn’t have ac­cess to the grit bins, I looked into how one could be pro­vided for them. After look­ing at sev­eral dif­fer­ent pos­si­bil­i­ties I was de­lighted that I could ar­range for one to be in­stalled through my county coun­cil com­mu­nity lead­ers’ fund. Hope­fully the in­stal­la­tion of the bin will make it safer and more eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble for res­i­dents in Rus­sell Court to get to and from their homes.”

Each county coun­cil­lor has a com­mu­nity lead­ers’ fund of ap­prox­i­mately £2,500 that they can spend on com­mu­nityled ini­tia­tives.
