Coronation Hall Bins

On numerous occasions recently we have noticed that someone keeps putting their
rubbish in the Coronation hall bins, can we remind the individuals concerned that the
Coronation hall bins are for hall use only and should you have any rubbish that you do
not what in your own bin or that will not fit in your in bin you can use either of the
Waste sites in Ashbourne or Uttoxeter.

Well Dressing

Marston Montgomery Well Dressing 2019 Announcement
The Well Dressing Committee have taken the sad decision to postpone this year’s
Well Dressing. The organisation, fundraising & event takes a lot of time, and
unfortunately not enough village residents came forward to support the
organisation of the event this year.
This means that the Marston Montgomery Well Dressing will no longer be taking
place on the 9th June.
The committee hope to reconvene later in the year and see some new faces and
old friends come together to support the running of the 2020 Well Dressing.
