Recycling tip
Following the closure of Fiskerton tip I took our garden rubbish to the Calverton recycling depot.

When we got there I found 27 cars queueing.

I got my two plastic bags of grass cuttings and tried to carry them in, only to be told that’s not allowed.

This is not encouraging people to recycle. It’s madness.

Learning curve
THE relationship between teenagers and older generations can be an uneasy one, but in many cases that may be based on perception rather than experience.

The vast majority of teenagers are well behaved and polite but they can be tarred with the same brush as those who make the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Most want to learn the skills that will help them at work and as they progress through life and a Government project is being offered in Newark and Sherwood for the first time to help them do just that.

The district council, working with New College, Nottingham, organises the National Citizen Service project, which gives 16 and 17-year-olds the chance to try outdoor pursuits and get involved in their communities.
