Here are some of the key items from the Bude & Stratton town Council newsletter:
The budgets for 2021/22 were agreed at this month’s Full Council meeting with the precept being set at £903,112. This means that the Town Council’s element of the Council Tax charge on residents will not increase in April 2021 and will remain at current levels.

Friendly stilt walkers visited Bude Town Centre on Thursday 17th, as part of the support being provided for the safe re-opening of high streets. They did a fantastic job reminding us in an entertaining and visible way to respect social distancing and follow the ‘Hands, Face and Space’ guidance.
The stilt walkers are working with the Reopening High Streets Safely Fund which supports the safe reopening of high streets and neighbourhood shopping areas across Cornwall and is part funded by The European Regional Development Fund.
Christmas waste and trees
Cornwall Council will be collecting non-artificial Christmas trees (up to 6ft in height) in the weeks beginning Monday 11 January and Monday 18 January. Collections will be made on your normal rubbish collection day on the opposite week to your recycling during this fortnight only. Place your tree near your rubbish by 7am for collection. It will be shredded and composted, so make sure you remove any decorations and take it out of its pot.
Christmas trees should be collected by a separate crew on the same day, so don’t worry if your rubbish is collected and your tree is still there. The other crew will be along later in the day to pick it up.
As in previous years, Cornwall Council will not be collecting rubbish and recycling on Christmas Day. Rubbish due to be collected on Christmas Day will be collected Friday 1 January. Recycling & Garden waste due to be collected on Christmas Day will be collected Saturday 2 January.
