Still time to submit your nominations for tendring youth awards 2019

YOUNG people who have helped their community are wanted as nominations for the 2019 Tendring Youth Awards.

In their fourth year, the awards celebrate achievements by youngsters who live, work or study in Tendring, across a range of categories. Youth groups can also be nominated, and there is a category for adults to recognise those who support young people in Tendring.

The Harwich Haven Authority is the headline sponsor of this year’s Tendring Youth Awards, which are supported by Tendring District Council and Essex County Council.

There are only a few weeks left to submit your entries to the awards, with nominations closing on Friday, May 24 – after which judges will shortlist the finalists ahead of the presentation evening at Clacton’s Princes Theatre on July 2.

Karen O’Connor, Tendring Youth Awards Chairwoman, said nominations were needed from the public.

“We need your help to recognise these young people – we can only celebrate those we know about. So please get nominating – there’s no limit on how many people you put forward,” Karen said.     “We reach out to schools and youth organisations and encourage them to put their inspirational young people forward, but some of the best nominations are from the public.”

Wheelie bins arrive ahead of roll-out of new waste service for tendring

Thousands of wheelie bins are being delivered to Tendring District Council (TDC) ahead of the roll-out of the new waste service.

From June 10 the bins will be delivered to homes across the district for households to use for the black bag waste.  Once delivered homes will be on a fortnightly collection service for the wheelie bins, with a weekly collection of food waste and an alternate weekly recycling collection.  Not all properties are having a wheelie bin as those with no suitable side access or front garden, and some rural routes, and in these cases they will continue to have a weekly black sack collection.

Most homes will have a new collection day and details will be provided with their new bin – and are also on the TDC website.  The roll-out will take 10 weeks to complete.


Jon Hamlet, Street Scene Manager, said the new service would be an improvement.  “We understand this is quite a big change and something that affects everyone in Tendring, which is why we are urging people to start preparing for it now,” Mr Hamlet said.  “We’ll be putting out more information as we get closer to the start of the roll-out, but would advise residents to look now at our website to remind themselves if they are getting a wheelie bin, and what their new collection day will be. We would also always recommend people look at how they can increase the amount they recycle, and now would be a good time to replace your recycling boxes or food caddy if they’re lost or broken.”
