Farewell Keith R.I.P

Keith M
Keith's funeral

Today we said goodbye to one of our own. Keith Metcalfe from our Recycling team sadly passed away last month. In tribute to this amazing, kind and much loved member of staff, our recycling trucks formed a guard of honour at the North Devon Crematorium this afternoon so his colleagues could wish him their own goodbye as they were not allowed to attend the funeral due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Public toilets

Wilder road toilets

Out of the 16 public toilets which NDC owns across the district, 7 blocks are now open.

We have concentrated the reopening of toilets to coastal areas where we thought there would be most use.  We will be looking to reopen the others shortly but no date has yet been set.  We will need to employ more staff to do this as we are using a much more frequent cleaning schedule.  It is likely that they will reopen in the next few weeks.

Facilities for radar key holders are still open.

Think Twice - park considerately

Always #ThinkTwice about where you park. Inconsiderate parking causes frustration for everyone, plus it could stop an emergency vehicle responding to someone who needs help when they most need it.

Avoid misinformation on Coronavirus - only follow advice from official, trusted sources.
