Village Paper bank - available from July 2014

As a fund-raising venture for the village,  the Dog Inn, kindly allowed the village committee to site a paper/cardboard skip on the rear car park of the pub for villagers to put their paper and cardboard for recycling.  
The village committee are appealing for all villagers to use the paper bank rather than allow the councils to collect their paper for recycling.  When full the paper bank should raise up to £50 per ton towards committee funds which will help towards insurance premiums, general overheads and allow the committee continue its good work in the village.
The paper bank was emptied for the first time on 29 August, weighing 2260 kgs which has raised £56.50 towards village funds. 
Please continue to make the time and effort to use the paper bank to earn funding for the village.  Even though the Dog Inn has closed the paper bank will remain in place until we hear otherwise from Enterprise Inns.
