Stuart Singers PhotoI love Christmas but about now I notice how much extra waste and recycling we have generated so I thought it would be good to think about a few Christmas recycling ideas to take us into a greener New Year.

Christmas tree recycling in Stroud area will be different to previous years; instead of skips there will be door to door collections. Collections will be made by Longfield (hospice at home support) in partnership with Stroud District Council. If you book your collection before 3rd January your tree will be collected and chipped for a donation to Longfield charity, more information can be found at www.longfield.org.uk/Event/christmas-tree-recycling.

Christmas cards can be taken to Tourist Information in The Sub Rooms between 2nd and 20th January. They will be passed on to Cobalt charity (medical research) who will up-cycle them.

SDC do not recycle wrapping paper, but Stroud Valleys Project have some locally made paper star making kits in the eco shop, you can make beautiful paper stars by reusing your Christmas wrapping paper for next year’s tree decorations or handmade presents.

In January we will be having our Diary and Calendar Swap. If you have any unwanted diaries or calendars please bring them into our shop and we will make them available to others for a donation to our charity.

Stuart Singers PhotoFinally, on a different note, on Saturday 20th January 2018 The Stuart Singers from Minchinhampton will be joined by The Reed Warblers, a bassoon quartet for a concert at Holy Trinity Church in aid of Stroud Valleys Project. Beat the January blues with this eclectic mix of fun and classical music.  Refreshments will be served in the interval. The cost is £10 adult & £5 child, tickets available at the SVP eco shop.

Happy New Year to all!!
