Milwich website is run and maintained solely by volunteers. We rely on information being supplied by others. We need your help!

Please let us have news of events or reports of activities so we can keep the site current. Please supply any information to info@milwich.com.

The more information we have, the more relevant the site can be for the people of Milwich and visitors.

This is particularly important as we move forward out of the current situation.

As the weather improves and more people are getting out and about in the lanes and the footpaths around Milwich, can we please remind dog owners to clear up after their dogs. There is an increasing amount of dog mess on the lanes and verges. It is equally important in the fields as it can be very detrimental to other animals.

Whilst walking through fields please keep to the rights of way and keep your dog under close control and on a lead near livestock, especially sheep and lambs. The only exception is if your dog is chased by cattle, let it go for your own and the dog’s safety.

The footpaths are there for the use of everyone so please enjoy your time in the countryside whilst following the Countryside Code.

Walking around Milwich

Whilst we are still in the current lockdown, I know many people are enjoying the footpaths around Milwich and surrounding Parish’s. As well as a published book, all the local walks can be found on the website by clicking here.

When we are allowed to travel further there are a lot more walks on the Walking in Staffordshire website.

The Parish Council have asked us to advise all residents about the charge that will be introduced by Stafford Borough Council. From January 1st 2021.

From that date, if you want your Brown Bin emptied it will cost £36 per year. All residents will receive a letter with information shortly.

The Borough Council said:

“You may be aware that around 65% of local authorities across the country already charge their residents for this. Collecting garden waste is not a statutory service – and last year we announced that unfortunately we would have to introduce a £36 annual charge for those households who wanted to continue with the brown bin service.

Our council has been commended for the way it has managed its finances. But there is no escaping the very real financial pressures that local authorities are facing – and this has now been amplified as we respond to, and recover from, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The money raised from the collection of garden waste will help with these budgetary pressures and therefore protect other essential services to our residents.

We will be sending all residents information directly about this change but please can you also circulate this website address within your parish www.staffordbc.gov.uk/brownbin
