Weight Credits

Babergh District Council and Mid Suffolk Council are merging and reorganising some of their services. Waste and recycling is part of this cost cutting and streamlining initiative, so details of weight credit payments last year have been sent a little later than usual.
We receive payment for the weight of paper, glass and textiles taken from our recycling centre and the bottle bank outside the Rose and Crown. Between April and September last year, this amounted to just over £1500.00. Totally brilliant for a small village.
Many thanks everyone, especially Dennis Hill, who donates the weight credits from the his bottle bank to school.

Recycling your Christmas cards

We used to recycle our Christmas cards with Tesco, to help The Woodland Trust raise funds for planting trees. This year only WH Smith, TK Maxx and M&S are listed on their website as participating companies

As it will not be easy to deliver to these stores, which are in the middle of Ipswich, we shall be taking our bin liners full of cards to Sainsbury and the money raised will benefit the Forest Stewardship Council.

Morrisons are collecting cards for a second year. The Salvation Army is their chosen charity.
