Collection of bins generally takes place very early on a Tuesday morning (starting 7.00 a.m.) so it's best to get bins out Monday Evening. Black and Green bins are collected alternate weeks. Check the village calendar for collection dates.
The village has 3 post boxes and between them they offer weekday morning and afternoon collections.
There is a portable defibrillator in the porch of the village hall.
The case will open without a code but an alarm may sound.
To silence the alarm enter the PIN 1066 (and not the number displayed on the case which may be given to the emergency services to aid identification of location.)
Courses on how to use it have been organised for villagers but if you missed them or would like a refresher then click here for a short instruction video
After use please email the village account so we can ensure the defibrillator can be checked and the pads replaced.
There is a limited bus service passing through the village at least once a day for each service. Bus tickets can be purchased from the bus driver.
The village bus service has now been taken over by LMS. There are now fewer buses running. Buses to Pershore go at 09-42am and 14-50pm. There appears to be only one bus back, from Pershore Broad Street, at 12-32. These times are posted on LMS website
Hints from an experienced bus user
Generally speaking the buses will stop almost anywhere as long as you make it known that you wish to board. The more usual stops though are Pool close, Brookfield, Orchard Drive, the Cross Roads, the lay by in Pershore Road and the opposite side of the road.
The buses now run in the same direction each week day. I am not sure which side of Broad street you now catch it to return to Little Comberton, but the timetable says The Royal Arcade, which would be by the pet shop. According to the timetable the bus comes from Elmley castle to Little Comberton, then Wick, Great Comberton, Eckington, Birlingham and Pershore. The return journey is in reverse. There is no service on Sunday.
The Parish Council employs a lengthsman whose time and costs are shared with other local villages. He undertakes ground clearance and maintenance of communal areas within the village. He attends the village on alternate Wednesday mornings and can be seen in his flourescent jacket, clearing leaves, drains, cutting back overhanging branches etc. If you have anything that you feel needs his attention, in the first instance, please contact the parish clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
