Like everyone I have seen the pictures on TV of the floods else where in the country. I have to say until you see it with your own eyes it is difficult to comprehend. this film was taken on 17th January from a train heading towards Birmingham New Street. I had long since left Plymouth and the sea this shocked me and as I said has to be seen with ones own eyes to understand the enormity of the floods. My heart goes out to the people that live where this train passed through. It was the same both sides of the track and almost like the train was traveling through water

Warwickshire County Council are keen to promote home composting.  It is a great way for gardeners to make their own compost and it diverts garden and food waste from the waste stream saving Council tax money.

To encourage residents of Warwickshire to either start composting or help existing home composters improve their knowledge, the County Council’s waste management team are running a series of free home composting workshops across Warwickshire.  Each resident attending the workshop will receive a free 330 litre compost bin. (Limited to one free bin per household)
Each workshop will last approximately 45 minutes consisting of a 30 minute presentation by two County Council officers with an expertise in home composting and waste management plus a question and answer session.
The workshops will take place as follows:
Bedworth – Wednesday 29th January

6.00pm – 6.45pm
Atherstone – Saturday 5th April
