New household recycling arrangements are coming into force this year, which include a new bin for non-recyclable rubbish, leaving the existing grey bin free for all recyclable waste, except paper, which would still go in the blue box. Cardboard would no longer go in the brown bin, but in the mixed recycling bin, the brown bin would contain garden and food waste only, compostable bags will be supplied. The black box would no longer be required, as glass and cans would go into the mixed recyclable bin. Unfortunately the full details, which are given on page 8 of the NHDC Magazine Outlook, are a little confusing. They refer to the "new bin" for non-recyclable rubbish which will end up in landfill, then the "new mixed recycling bin" to be used for all the recyclable stuff (except paper). I guess the "new mixed recycling bin " is the old grey bin. Perhaps someone can correct me if I have misunderstood. If you have any comments or feedback email service@north-herts.gov.uk or call 01462 474000.

Losing weight will be on the agenda for lots of us in the New Year, following the seasonal excesses, something that I had to do last January in preparation for an operation. I lost 5 stones (70 lbs) and the most wonderful thing was, that I never felt hungry whilst doing so, all thanks to Ann Pugh, who introduced me to The “Forever” Weight Loss Programme.

Ann followed up with regular contact and encouragement and I am thankful to her for all her efforts. After Christmas, I shall be back on the "Programme" with the intention of losing another two or three stones by Spring time, when I am hoping the operation will be able to take place. If you want to lose weight safely and easily try the "Forever" Weight Loss Programme.

Liz Kirby and her friend started running training in January 2011 in preparation for a 10k charity run. Mow they are fitter than ever and totally hooked on the buzz they get from running; so much so that they decided to look for a local running club. Then it occurred to them, why drive to a running club when there are lots of beautiful running routes around Knebworth?

If you are interested in helping create or join a Knebworth runners' network, please contact Liz at lizkirby63@gmail.com. It doesn't matter what your motivation is - competition, getting fitter or simply becoming better acquainted with your fellow villagers.
