Water pipes work
Information from United Utilities
We’re carrying out some night time work on the water pipes in your area between Sunday 2 October and Friday 7 October, from 11pm until 5.30am
We wanted to let you know about work we’re carrying out to refresh the water pipes in your area. It’s part of a programme taking place across the North West region to help remove natural mineral deposits, keep the pipes in tip-top condition and make sure we continue to provide high quality water to your home or business.
You can find further information at unitedutilities.com/pipe-cleaning
What does the work involve?
Our work involves opening fire hydrants at specific locations and carefully controlling the release of water, using as little as possible, to flush out and remove natural sediment. We won’t need to turn off your water and we carry out the work during the night to cause as little disruption as possible. In most instances you may not even notice we’re there, but of course our team will do all they can to minimise any noise and make sure your water supply is unaffected.
You may notice a temporary change to the colour of your tap water
During the work you may find that your tap water temporarily reduces in pressure or, after the work takes place may appear a little discoloured. We do understand discoloured water can look unpleasant and want to reassure you that our work would only impact your property for a short amount of time as our team progresses through the area. This is nothing to worry about and any discolouration will quickly return to normal. We’re sorry if you do experience any changes to the colour of your water and have information and advice so you can help to clear discoloured water quickly.
Thanks for your patience as we carry out this important work. We’re here to help you with any queries or if your water doesn’t clear after following the simple guidance, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can do this via our social media channels or if you prefer give us a call on 0345 6723 723 and select option 1.

Green Waste Dumping
It has been pointed out to us that people have been dumping green and garden waste on the land opposite the entrance to the football club. This land is private and does not belong to Chorltonville, the football club or the council.
We wanted to make it clear that no arrangement to dump green waste has been made between the Committee and the owners of this land.
Our advice is therefore that no such disposal should take place unless you have reached specific agreement to do so with the landowner.

Chorlton & Didsbury foodbank appeal
St Barnabas at the end of Hurstville Road is one of the 3 distribution centres for Chorlton & Didsbury foodbank (part of the Trussell Trust)
It operates between 11am and 1pm on Fridays.
There is an appeal for donations to this and to another foodbank operated by Barakah Food Aid also based in Chorlton.
In order to support as many people as possible during these difficult times, some Hurstville residents would like to try to support both organisations on an ongoing basis. To facilitate this, there will be boxes for donations outside specific houses on Hurstville Road (26 & 17) each Friday. If you’re able to pop an additional item into your weekly shop and are able to contribute, then it would be greatly appreciated. If you are self isolating, Hurstville & Redland will be scoured for donations left on doorsteps which will then be split 50-50.
Donations will be taken up to St Barnabas at noon each Friday. Delivery to Barakah will also be weekly.
A list of donations they are desperate for:
- Long Life Milk
- Long Life Fruit Juice
- Rice (500g and 1kg packs)
- Individual toilet rolls and individual bars of soap. We know these are in very short supply for everyone.
- Other donations of tins and non-perishable food items are also gratefully received.
We are all finding the current situation difficult, but the more vulnerable are finding it even harder.
Anything you can donate would be welcome.

Owners AGM 2020 cancelled
After careful consideration in light of recent government recommendations, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Chorltonville AGM due to be held on 29th March.
Under normal circumstances, the levy for the year is voted on and set at the AGM. As this will not be possible, the 2020 levy will be kept at last year's rate.

We have had quite a lot of reports of inconsiderate and sometimes dangerous parking over the last few weeks, with contractors and visitors' vehicles parked on kerbs and verges or on some occasions parked opposite residents' parked cars making it difficult for vehicles to pass between.
Every verge and kerb repair necessary makes it a little harder to avoid levy increases.
We are really grateful for reports of damage and where vehicles are identified we do try recover costs. Committee Members do their best to tackle parking which might damage verges or kerbs, but our resources are limited. Please download our "please don't park here" notice which we encourage you to use if you find vehicles parked on verges or kerbs.
