Gardening Scheme 2019

Huntington Parish Council launched its Community Gardening Scheme  in 2007. In 2018 we were once again able to assist elderly and disabled residents with their grass cutting and hedge trimming, however this service is over subscribed and there is a small waiting list.

Residents have been delighted with their Community Gardener and work has been carried out to an exceptionally high standard.

Huntington Parish Council is able to offer assistance to certain residents with garden maintenance.

The scheme will be limited to those residents who are genuinely unable to manage their grass cutting or hedge trimming. If you wish to be considered for this  scheme please complete an application form and return it to the Parish Clerk
Because of the high demand for this service, we will be limiting the number of applicants on the scheme. This will operate on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so early return of your application form is essential. This decision was taken to ensure that the quality of the work undertaken remains at a high standard.
You are reminded that the work undertaken by the gardeners is limited to grass-cutting and hedge-trimming only.
PLEASE NOTE: Closing date for the receipt of applications is 1st March 2019

Street Cleaner

Many residents will be used to the familiar sight of Stephen Wadsworth, the Parish Street Cleaner, wheeling his rubbish cart round the streets - a service funded by Huntington Parish Council since March 2006.
