Re: Malvern show

Long life milk cartons are now refused as a part of cardboard recycling in our area due to the lining inside, you need a degree in waste management these days just to try your best and do your bit !!!!!!!!

Re: Malvern show

I wish we could go back to the days when you could buy just what you wanted instead of pre packed stuff!! problem is all the mega super markets have caused the closure of most of the high streets and the small time shop owners, it does get me angry.

Re: sowed seeds today

We've been fairly lucky this year with the weather we are 800ft above sea level just 4 miles from the sea so i bet this winter is going to be fairly harsh.
