Promoting recycling

Lady Charity Blue-Binitall will be representing our school's recycling centre at Buckle's Wood on Tuesday, when a disease resistant elm tree will be planted to commemorate the Queen's Jubilee.
Sadly Lady Blue -binitall has fallen upon hard times and has asked if  I  would rummage through the textile bank to find something suitably elegant for her to wear. I'm sure Black Country Rags will not object, as she has promised to return them after the event,
Meanwhile, in order to promote her attendanceat the celebration, she has kindly allowed me to photograph her in her best hat.

A good read

We started collecting unwanted books a couple of years ago and I've been amazed at the quantity and quality of books that have been left at the recycling centre; too many to sell locally and at the gate!
So I've set up a store on Amazon for the best "as new" books and other, older and antique and interesting paper and hardbacks. All at avery reasonable prices!

Have a look. Would Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls by Harvey Minkoff be of interest?
It doesn't appear to have been read!

Removing the textiles from the clothing bank and taking them to a safe place was a good idea. So far this year, we have helped Malcolm, the driver from BCR,  load 870kg  of clothes, shoes, curtains,sheets and blankets into his lorry.
Our local police are keeping an eye out for white vans, since one was stopped in one of the local villages  and found to be full of textiles! The van was was caught by CCTV cameras, heading towards and away from Ipswich. So good news all round!
