So the next Art Fair will be in March 2019, with a refreshed look and new organisers. We want to thank you for all your support and look forward to seeing you next year. Read more »

Fix My Street

The most reliable way to report problems with roads and local amenities, such as

  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Dog Fouling
  • Drainage
  • Flyposting or graffiti
  • Flytipping or litter
  • Pavements
  • Streetcleaning
  • Unlit lampposts
  • Potholes
  • Overhanging trees

is via FixMyStreet. If you can, take a photograph of the problem first and have it ready to upload with your report.


Nextdoor social network

Nextdoor is a relatively new social network designed specifically for local communities. Locally it runs with the Ferris and Gower as separate neighbourhoods, but it does share information between them. It claims about 90 members in the Gower (although there are reasons to doubt that so many are active participants) and nearly 20 in the Ferris. Recently it has helped people sell a Rayburn, find a mobile hairdresser, give away tennis balls, find a lift into Chippie - the list goes on. Do take a look.

Glass recycling

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

How to avoid an event clash

When you are planning a coffee morning, a plant sale or some other village event, make sure you do these things before publishing the date and time of the event:

  1. Check the Village Diary for other events that may clash with yours.
  2. Add your event to the Village Diary.

If your event is in the Village Hall then the Village Hall Booking Secretary will make sure your event appears in the Village Diary. For other events, send us the details and we will add it to the Village Diary for you.

You might also want to check that your event does not clash with other local happenings. These links might be useful: Read more »
