Christmas lights

If your strands of Christmas fairy lights are older than 10 years it will be more efficient to replace them with newer ones with LED bulbs. They can save you up to 90% or more on power costs and will last longer than traditional bulbs.

Food waste

Stop your green bin from smelling bad between collections by keeping food waste in compostable bags in your freezer, if there is space, and only putting it in the bin just before collection. This could also help keep your freezer fuller, which makes it run more efficiently.

Recycled toilet paper

The average person uses 50 pounds of toilet paper per year. Try to buy the highest level of post-consumer recycled content, looking for either 100% recycled or FSC certified toilet paper.

Simplify your life as much as possible. Only keep belongings that you use or enjoy on a regular basis. By making the effort to reduce what you own, you will naturally purchase less and create less waste in the future.

Mayor’s Award for Belle Vue’s Hermitage Centre

Mike Hallworth and Martin Beardwell from Belle Vue Church receiving the Gold Award certificate from the Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Jane Mackenzie, and the Mayor’s Consort, Councillor Tony Parsons.

Belle Vue Church’s Hermitage Centre has received a Gold Award in this year’s Shrewsbury Town Council Civic Awards Ceremony, which took place in May. The award was presented under the Built Heritage category, which recognises projects that have enhanced the built heritage of the town.

The Centre, which was completed in 2016, is very well used by community groups and individuals for classes, counselling sessions, leisure activities and children’s parties, as well as for church activities. The Mayor’s Awards are labelled Shrewsbury’s “equivalent to the Oscars”, and they acknowledge local individuals, organisations, groups and businesses for the benefit they bring to the town.

Some 72 of the town’s people and organisations received honours this year. Speaking at the ceremony the Mayor Councillor Jane Mackenzie said, “The Mayor’s Awards are my opportunity to thank some of the wonderful people and organisations who do so much to make our town a great place to live. It’s a real privilege to recognise and reward those who gladly give their time and talent to benefit others living in our local community.”

Save money and microwave

Microwave where possible as microwave ovens use much less energy than conventional ovens. You might be surprised by the range of meals (and desserts!) that can be made in a microwave.
