URGENT MESSAGE FROM SIBELCO ABOUT ACTIVITIES AT THE QUARRY THIS WEEKEND
The following has been received from the Quarry Management at 1.51pm this afternoon - 15th February 2019
Due to a breakdown at Warmsworth Quarry today there will be a need to carry out emergency maintenance over the weekend (16th and 17th February). The hours for the emergency works will be between 0700-1900 on both days and will include testing of the plant. The emergency maintenance works fall within the constraints of our planning permission, but we will strive to ensure that any disruption to the local community is kept to a minimum.
Due to the short notice of these works, we would be grateful if this information could be placed on your website so that the local community are made aware."
RECENT QUARRY BLASTING
The meeting with Sibelco was very constructive. Cllr Simon Auty posed all of the questions which were sent to him and all of you should now have been contacted by him with a response. We are also coordinating the replies to enable a follow up letter. Sibelco have also given us their responses to individual questions which are contained in the following document in PDF Format.

REMEMBRANCE 1918 - 2018
100 years recalled at a remembrance service on 11th November at the White Church at 10.00 followed by a procession and further commemoration at the cenotaph in Warmsworth Cemetery.
A wonderful turnout despite the rain and serious thanks to the Guides, scouts, Brownies, Warmsworth & Edlington Lions, Loyal Orangemen, Warmsworth & DMBC Councillors, South Yorkshire Police, our wonderful Parade Marshall John Knapp and of course to you for braving the elements.
An estimated 200 plus people really showed their respects - Thank you to all concerned.
Thank you to all of you for your feedback on the Christmas lights in Warmsworth. This was all financed and co-ordinated by the Parish Council. We plan to continue this in future and add to the array of lights that we already have.

Lots more good work is being done in the name of Warmsworth Parish Council for the community in 2018.
The Parish Council is pleased to announce that Warmsworth Allotments are now legally owned by Warmsworth Parish Council.
Some residents have expressed concern that this land could be sold by the Parish in future years to realise a return however the Parish Council wishes to allay those fears.
If the land is unused by ANYONE and the Parish Council can demonstrate unequivocally that the people of the Parish wish the land to be disposed of through suitable consultation, and then ONLY with the final consent of the relevant Secretary of State, can the Parish Council even consider disposal.
Clearly the chances of all of these circumstances happening any one time in the future, is virtually nil and Council tax payers of the Parish are urged to use this excellent facility to preserve a much needed green space.
QUARRY PARK INCIDENTS
Recent serious incidents in this area have been reported. The parish Council is pressing South Yorkshire Police, Doncaster Council, The Press, Local Residents and DMBC Councillors to unite and pursue every possible line of action to eradicate this unnecessary and disturbing behaviour - mainly by people who do not live in or respect what Warmsworth values.
KING GEORGE PLAYING FIELDS
We are currently doing a lot of remedial work in and around the Playing Fields which includes some safety work on the Playing area, gates and entrances and removing old foliage from gates and fences.
