- Time for a change at Basingstoke RFC
- [Jul 08, 2019]
- Changing rooms at Basingstoke Rugby Football Club in Pack Lane will be transformed with a Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Local Infrastructure Fund grant of £147,900. None of the current changing rooms comply with current RFU standards and the communal shower room is inappropriate for the increasing mixed gender demand brought about by the huge increase in interest in girls/ladies rugby at the club.
- Changes to bin collections
- [Jun 14, 2019]
- Together with our contractor Serco we are making some changes to waste, recycling and garden waste collections in the borough.
From the week beginning Monday 22 July 2019, over half of the borough’s households will see a change to the day, recycling week or the time their bin is collected. Most of our garden waste customers will also see a change.
These changes are necessary to ensure the smooth running of the service both now and in the future. They will reduce the distances bin trucks are travelling, revise the routes to incorporate new homes in the area and simplify collections for some residents so their glass and recycling is collected on the same day.
