From 30 October 2020 information about Walsall bin collections will go paperless. The move to online collection information will help the service to decrease its carbon footprint by not printing up to 115,000 paper calendars and also reduce environmental impact in eliminating the usual house to house distribution of each leaflet.

COVID-19 has changed the way that we celebrate special events with our families and friends this year. Although we can’t hold or host Halloween events that doesn’t mean that we can’t have a good time.
Parents and carers are being urged to submit their applications for a year 7 school place for their child before the national application deadline on 31 October 2020. Children born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 are due to transfer to a secondary school in September 2021.
Like so many events this year, the Poppy Appeal has had to adapt to the threat of COVID-19, with people marking and supporting the commemoration safely from home. Walsall Council is also asking you to get behind this year’s event by downloading your choice of a poppy to pop in your window. You can choose a ready version that you can print off, or if you prefer a blank poppy to colour in.
Every poppy counts. Please make a donation and find out how to support the Royal British Legion here.

The recent government announcement of a new COVID-19 local alert level means that Walsall is now categorised as ‘high’ with new government restrictions that came into effect as of 14 October to curb the spread of the virus, save lives and protect the NHS. The high category means a heightened risk of community transmission in Walsall. You must not meet socially with friends and family indoors in any setting unless you live with them or have formed a support bubble with them. This includes private homes, and any other indoor venues such as pubs and restaurants.
