400 homes sign up for garden waste scheme in first year From Gazette Series The council's chief executive, David Hagg, and I attended this jimmy choo silver glitter very important seminar on Safeguarding Children and Adults in Gloucestershire organised by the Gloucestershire Health and Wellbeing Board.
In a week when child protection issues were making national headlines, the meeting explored the pressures in the system, particularly jimmy choo snake print shoes at the "front door" of all organisations and looked at what this means for each organisation involved in safeguarding vulnerable children, young people and adults. After last year's mild winter, temperatures well below freezing saw many of us returning home after a day's work to the ground still covered in frost and car jimmy choo flat sandals windscreens still frozen. Today the Gloucestershire Local Resilience Forum (LRF) reminded us that the 'Get Ready for Winter' campaign was now live. The forum is made up of Gloucestershire councils, the emergency services, health bodies, the Environment Agency and other local organisations who all work together to prevent and deal with civil emergencies in short, its aim is to keep jimmy choo red velvet shoes us all safe, especially during times of adverse weather, flooding or other large scale incidents. The campaign covers a wealth of information and advice on travel, the home, health and general preparation for winter. It's worth a look and could save you a lot of grief in the broadest context. In recent weeks I've mentioned how the new food waste collections have been going, however today saw the end of the first year of garden waste recycling collections. This is an optional, paid for service, with a one off 20 charge for the wheelie bin and an annual subscription fee of 36. Subscribers receive a brown wheelie bin for grass clippings, twigs, leaves, bark, hedge cuttings, flowers, plants, weeds, fallen fruit and small branches, which is collected fortnightly over the 10 month period from February. The first year saw close to 6,400 households sign up for the scheme. The annual subscription fee equates to 1.
64 per collection. Christmas isn't far away now and whilst many of us will have already attended one, or have parties planned, it's worth remembering the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme if you're planning to eat out. Our environmental health officers go out and assess establishments across the district to ensure that they meet standards and give them a food hygiene score.
