Parish Caretaker

The Parish Council operates a Parish Caretaker scheme, whereby it contracts DTMS Ltd from Fellbeck to carry out 8 hours per month of maintenance works in the parish.

The Caretakers carry out a variety of tasks, including:
  • Inspecting and maintaining the playgrounds in Grantley and Sawley.
  • Looking after Picking Gill nature reserve, including pulling out Himalayan Balsam (an invasive weed). 
  • Litter picking. 
  • Keeping footpaths and lanes clear. 
  • Keeping road signs clean and clear. 
You can track what the Parish Caretaker is doing by looking at their latest tasksheet: 

If you know of any tasks that need doing, then please contact the Clerk to the Parish Council (see the 'Contact Us' page).
