Coun Simon Greaves, Bassetlaw Council leader.

Busy start to another big year for Bassetlaw

I would like to start to my first column of 2020 by wishing everybody a Happy New Year and thanking those members of the emergency services, NHS, carers and armed forces who were at work over the festive period, writes Coun Simon Greaves.
The county council's 12 recycling centres will all be open for most of the festive period.

'Tis the season to be jolly aware of recycling

At Christmas time we tend to buy and use more products compared with other times of the year – whether decorating the house, having to de-ice the car or buying extra food and drink products to get ready for festive gatherings.

This week is National Safeguarding Adults Week and here at the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board, we are working with our partners to encourage local people to do their bit in combatting loneliness and keeping vulnerable people safe, writes Allan Breeton.
