Potential Industrial Action - Friday 6 October

Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is preparing for planned industrial action. This is for UNISON members employed by the council.

This is in relation to a pay dispute relating to the pay award for 2023/24. If the issue is not resolved, UNISON intend to take strike action on 6 October and commence an ongoing period of work to rule from Monday 9 October. 

If industrial action does go ahead, we will have to delay green bin and bulky waste collection services on Friday 6 October to allow us to prioritise collecting your household and recycling waste. Garden waste collections that were due on Friday 6 will be moved to Saturday 7 if the action is taken by UNISON.

Most of our services will be delivered as normal, and you can stay up to date with all the latest information about any disruption to services. 

The Friends group aims to help the rangers in their work of maintaining and improving the park. We aim to promote the use and enjoyment of Hinchingbrooke Country Park and organise fund raising activities and seek grants to increase funds available for new and ongoing projects.

The Friends have funded a wide range of items over the years, including educational equipment, footpath improvements, bird feeders, fencing for the play area, bat boxes, an adapted cycle for less able users and improvements to the bee hive viewing area.

Whether you are a frequent or occasional visitor, we hope you will show your support and become a Friend. Your membership will help to maintain this beautiful park and, in addition, you will benefit from regular newsletters and updates. Yearly membership costs just £6 per household, or £60 for lifetime membership.

See our membership form [PDF, 0.1MB] for contact details and to apply for membership.

Donations to support the upkeep of the park and help the continuous improvement can be made via Givey.
