Parking in Sibford Gower

Sibford Gower Parish Council asks all residents to park considerately, and ensure their workmen and guests do so too. There are three particular problem areas in the Gower and Burdrop:

  • On Main Street at the corner to Bonds End Lane
  • Outside the primary school on the Keep Clear signs
  • At the blind corner just past the church.

Please ensure that there is room for ambulances, buses, milk lorries and tractors at all times.

Glass recycling

Glass recycling containers are available at the Wykham Arms and just outside Sibford Ferris at The Elm crossroads.
