The Bunting Is Up!

Our village is preparing for next weekend’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and began today by putting up the bunting around Bernards’ Place, inside and outside of the Comrades Hall, up the High Street, on the railings at Trusthams and down Back Lane as well as around the Square into West Street. Almost 2,000 triangles… 950 metres of it….

Chairman of Broadwindsor Fun Group, Adrian Gray said “Our thanks to all those that turned out to put nearly a km of bunting up. It took nearly four hours but has made the village look great.

Not one bit of plastic in sight – all the bunting has been made using recycled bed sheets, duvet covers, curtains and pillowcases. Stitched together by helpers ranging from an 80 year old tailor to Broadwindsor’s 1st Rainbows 🙂

A huge thank you to everyone who was involved – be proud of this accomplished monumental and sustainable task!

After the Jubilee celebrations, the bunting will be available to other village groups wishing to use it for their celebrations in the future.

Post To Recycle Rubber Bands

Acknowledged as biodegradeable, Royal Mail states the natural rubber content in a rubber band means that they will start to biodegrade in an outdoor environment within a year and this, we are told helps to minimise their impact on the environment. However, Rubber bands take up to 50 years to fully biodegrade and can be incredibly harmful to the environment. If burned they release carcinogenic pollution into the atmosphere.

Royal Mail, and the Trade Unions CWU and Unite/CMA recognise that discarded elastic bands that litter the ground, present a public nuisance, an eyesore and a threat to wildlife and pets, as well as representing a needless expense. Every year, Royal Mail uses around 338 tonnes of elastic bands to keep bundles of mail together.

You can now post any rubber bands you see or find directly into any post box and they will be recycled by the Royal Mail.

Every little helps…
