    The work done by the Conservation Volunteers has helped during the bad weather. The excess water on the park is now flowing into the ditch.

Order lines now open for larger or additional bins

The opportunity for residents in the District of Blaby to order larger or additional bins for their household in anticipation of the new alternate weekly bin service is now available.

Giving all residents the chance to order larger or extra bins is part of the plans revealed by Blaby District Council, with the new alternate weekly service set to begin on Monday 02 July. Those who would like a larger or additional bin can visit www.blaby.gov.uk/waste2018 to fill in the form. More »

To have the best chance of getting new bins before the service begins residents are encouraged to order before midnight on Sunday 06 May. As part of the new service bin capacity will become dependent on household size. Larger or additional bins over a household's standard capacity will cost £17.50 per bin, regardless of the type and size of bin.

Delivery of bins is planned to take place throughout May and June. Residents will be encouraged to sign up to email alerts when filling in the form so they can be notified of when their bin will be delivered to their property.

A dedicated telephone number of 0116 272 7790 has also been set up for those who cannot access the online form. Those ordering over the phone will have until 4:45pm on Friday 04 May to have the best chance of getting their bins before the new scheme begins.

Blaby District Council's move to an alternate weekly collection follows the loss of £505,000 in recycling credits from Leicestershire County Council and £240,000 in a central government grant to run weekly recycling collections. Nearly 9,000 residents responded to a consultation between October-November 2017 to help shape the new service.

For full details on what each household is eligible for, and to order bins before the new service begins, please visit www.blaby.gov.uk/waste2018. » Less

Lightbulb marks successful first six months

Lightbulb marks successful first six months

Over 2,300 from across Leicestershire have been helped to remain independent in their own home thanks to the work of the award winning Lightbulb Project.

The first six months of the partnership, hosted by Blaby District Council, has seen the project recognised with three awards due to its work in supporting vulnerable people. Leicestershire County Council, district councils, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG's) and Leicestershire Partnership Trust make up the scheme's other partners. More »

Equipment in the homes of service users enables them to stay out of hospital by preventing accidents and falls. A reduction of just one fall for every 17 residents saves the local health and care economy £21,000 per year.

One service user who had a bath lift installed, said: "Thank you, a bath lift may seem such a simple thing, but it has made such a difference to my life!"

Another service user said: "Thank you for the adaptations that you fitted at my 93 year old mother's home, she has mobility issues and is a blue badge holder.

"They have been a god send. It was really great to have all this sorted by one team and the Housing Support Coordinator who visited my mother sorted everything out."

Teresa Neal, Lightbulb Service Manager, said: "We are so proud of the huge amount of work we have undertaken in the first six months of Lightbulb. From providing a perching stool to installing a stair lift, our team will do all they can to keep Leicestershire residents independent in their home.

"Lightbulb has been recognised multiple times for the great partnership to get to this point. We hope this can be an inspiration for other authorities to follow our way of working to help residents in their local area."

Lightbulb's other benefits have included a much reduced waiting time for housing adaptations, fewer people involved in each case and a vast reduction in delivery cost.

Residents can find out more about help within their home by visiting www.leicestershire.gov.uk or call 0116 305 0004. » Less
