On behalf of The Sherborne Market



Dear all,

It is with great happiness and relief that we are putting on The Sherborne Market on 21st June 2020. A year since the first one.

The market will be scaled back and there will be distancing between stalls. The road closure will be in place along Cheap Street and Half Moon street from 7.30 a.m until 4 p.m. We have engaged Events Crew to man the road closure and have assigned two security people to the Abbey to ensure no one is inconvenienced by the market. All traders have been asked to take their rubbish but the security staff will double check all areas.

We would very much like any shops in town to have a FREE stall outside their business to engage with the public and chat with them about their business and how it has evolved and what services they can now offer. Please contact Jules to reserve your space asap via email julesbradburn@gmail.com otherwise it may be assigned to a stall holder.

The stalls will be more spaced out than the last market and we need to recruit a number of volunteers to be social distancing marshals just reminding people politely about spacing, they may have placards to politely remind people but they can also act as info points. Please contact Jules if you are able to volunteer, it only needs to be for a couple of hours not the whole day.

The stall holders will be asked to marshal their own queues appropriately and remind people about social distancing.  

We are very aware that people need to start trading again and do hope the market day will provide a step to normality while being a lovely, well managed and controlled day out. Please if you do have any concerns contact us.

Best regards

Jules

Sherborne Household Recycling Centre -Re Opening
Sherborne Household Recycling Centre -Re Opening
Posted by
Dorset Council

Dorset Council is pleased to announce that Sherborne Household Recycling Centre (HRC, or “the tip”) on West Mill Lane will be re-opening on Tuesday 2 June.

However, there will be different measures in place for visitors to follow if they want to drop off their waste, which will involve being redirected to another location first.

Sherborne HRC was the only Dorset Council recycling centre not to reopen earlier in May. This is because it shares an access road with a Waste Transfer Station, which is where the waste at the kerbside goes after collection. More planning was required to prevent queuing traffic – seen at all other HRCs across Dorset - disrupting bin collections by obstructing waste collection vehicles.

Dorset Council’s Waste Service officers have been working closely with Sherborne Town Council for the last few weeks and have found a solution that prevents excessive traffic queues, but also allows residents to drop off waste that cannot be safely stored at home.

When the Sherborne HRC re-opens on Tuesday 2 June, all visitors should proceed to the Terrace Playing Fields car-park (situated on the southern edge of Sherborne at Dancing Hill). Here, you will take a paper ticket (like a supermarket deli counter) and join the queue for the HRC. When the queue at the HRC becomes short enough, you will be directed by on-site staff to travel to the HRC to drop off your waste. Visitors without a ticket will not be able to enter the recycling centre.

Visitors are reminded that social distancing measures are in place at all HRCs. Please note: -

  • Do not arrive at the Terrace Playing Fields car park early – operating hours are 9am to 6pm daily
  • Do not visit the HRC directly or if you are unwell
  • Stay 2m away from all people on site outside of your household
  • HRC staff will not be able to assist with carrying items
  • Only one person should leave the vehicle to unload waste, two if unloading heavy items
  • Please bring a maximum of two waste types per visit
  • Reuse areas will remain closed
  • Charges still apply for some waste types, but contactless payments only – no cash.
  • On your return from the HRC, please remember not to touch your face and to wash your hands for 20 seconds on arrival at your destination.

Cllr Tony Alford, Dorset Council’s portfolio holder for Customer, Community and Regulatory Services, said:

“We’ve been working hard planning how we can re-open Sherborne HRC without disrupting kerbside collections and I’d like to extend my gratitude to Sherborne Town Council for their help in finding a solution that works for everyone.

If you do need to visit Sherborne HRC, be prepared for delays. We’ll have friendly employees and volunteers at both sites to let you know what you must do.

We will get things back to normal when visitor numbers drop to manageable levels and/or social distancing restrictions are relaxed. In the meantime, we kindly ask everyone to have patience and understanding while these temporary arrangements are in place.”
