General update

It's been a .long time since I added a piece to this blog. In fact, I haven't spent the winter travelling the world, but  have been trying to keep up with a  number of changes recently, which have taken up a lot of my timeand energy!
Firstly-- just after my last report, BCR Global, the company that has serviced our  textile recycling all these years, surprised everyone by going into liquidation. The textile back was sealed up while another company was found to replace BCR.  Fortunately, with s a great deal of support from Babergh/Mid Suffolk Waste department, who supplied a  wheelie bin for the public to use, the textiles were all stored safely in my garage until the new company(ERC) started collections earlier this year.
About this time Takeback Ltd who take our laser and inket cartridges, was sold to another, very large company.  This hasn't  has much impact as yet.
Then -HURRAY -  the school anounced that the very ancient and problematical toilets were going to be replaced and the tempoery toilets needed to go on the recycling centre as it was the only place where the sewage pipe could be accessed!
So all the recycling banks were re-sited on the Village Hall car park. Once again Babergh/ Mid Suffolk waste and recycling department stepped in and organised this.
Only the Book Recycling has carried on as normal. Loads of wonderful books hav been donaated and I've had time tosort and sell them on the Internet
This just one of forty art books that I received this weekend. All in excellent condition. So far I've managed to photograph ten and add them to my store
Take a peep. You might be tempted!
