Straw deliveries over Christmas & New Year

As winter is a particular time when National Grid requires power stations, such as the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant, to run and given how the Christmas holiday period falls this year, we have  permission from North Kesteven District Council to allow us to deliver straw to the plant (and remove ash) on the afternoon of Saturday, 23rd December 2017 (2.00pm to 7.00pm).

Normally on Saturdays, we deliver straw to our plant between 8.00am and 2.00pm but because of the Christmas holidays we need extra delivery time on the 23rd; this additional half-day will allow us to maintain sufficient stock of straw so that the plant can maintain normal operations over the Christmas period, generating electricity into the National Grid and supplying heat to Sleaford swimming pool and other civic buildings in the town.

We will not be taking deliveries of straw (or removing ash) on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day (nor New Year’s  Eve or New Year’s Day).  After Christmas, our normal deliveries will resume on Wednesday December 27th through to 2.00pm on Saturday December 30th, and resume again on Tuesday January 2nd.
