A message forwarded by our councillor, Matt Cochcrane.
You will be aware that Cabinet have agreed further funding for gull treatments for this and future years.
Having completed a full and transparent tendering process the contract for the treatments has been awarded to NBC Environment, who had previously delivered the programme in 2016 and 2017.
This is the 3rd year of a wider programme and in response to concerns about displacement of gulls, the scope of the programme has been extended this year. The wards which are eligible for free treatments are:
• Combe Down
• Odd Down
In addition to the above we will be treating Council owned buildings (e.g. the Guildhall) and the former Welton Bibby Factory in Midsomer Norton.
Please could you direct any enquiries to our dedicated webpage where customers can find out how to contact our contractor, NBC Environment and register an interest for a treatment. There are also a number of FAQ’s on this page which I hope you find helpful. The link can be found here:

Sue has asked me to let those of you who knew Colin, that he passed away on Monday 5t February at Cranhill Nursing Home after a long illness.
Colin stepped in as chairman of BHRA on a temporary basis, when we were on the verge of folding due to lack of volunteers for the committee and stayed for 5 years. He stepped down in 2015 due to ill health. He and Sue West his partner lived in Sydney Wharf for many years and worked hard to support BHRA and attended all our events, despite his health problems. He was full of life, took a keen interest in several local community projects and was a well known and liked member of the Bathwick hill community as well as a staunch supporter of Bath Rugby.
Colin’s funeral is at Haycombe Crematorium on Monday 26 Feb at 12.15, and afterwards at The Globe. It will be a strictly non-religious ceremony, with no hymn singing, according to his wishes.
No flowers thank you, but donations if wished to The Kennet & Avon Canal Trust c/o Funeral Directors G Mannings.
Sue has said it would give her great pleasure and comfort if Colin’s old friends from Bathwick Hill can join her on February 26th.
