Tickenham Parish Council signs up to the Parish Recycling Scheme


North Somerset Council’s Parish Recycling Scheme offers local councils part of a £120,000 pot to encourage them to boost their recycling rates. Tickenham is one of the latest councils to join the scheme.

We all need to think more about recycling. The Parish council needs to send a positive message to residents about recycling and is 100% behind the scheme.

The recycling scheme also includes events and involving local groups and Tickenham School is keen to be involved.

It is very likely that the North Somerset display vehicle will come to the March Village Market, giving residents more information about recycling. The roadshow will also provide the opportunity to bring small electrical items and small pieces of furniture to a local venue, as opposed to going to the recycling centre. These items will then be donated to a local charity.

Recycling pledge forms have been sent to every Tickenham household and we hope that everyone in Tickenham will show their support for the scheme and pledge to work harder at recycling.

Thank you.

Tickenham Parish Council

Tickenham Church SUMMER FAYRE  celebrated our Patronal Festival and was held Saturday 11th June at Tickenham Court.  Fun, games, great stalls, chicken chuckin’, live music, cream teas – all the fun of the fair was much enjoyed.  Watch out for the 2017 date!


Our usually calm and peaceful church must have been wondering what was happening on Friday 22nd April when the HARRY BROWNS arrived!  They  certainly livened things up with their sea shanties and jovial banter.  One minute they were larking about with idle chat, the next they were straight into another roof-raiser – and wow! did they raise the roof!  We all did our best to sing along once we had caught the words – it was thoroughly entertaining and very good fun.  Huge thanks to them for offering this concert with no fee in order to help with the  West Window Appeal.  Thank goodness the roof ultimately remained in tact!
