COMMONWEALTH DAY 2017

The 52 countries of the Commonwealth celebrated Commonwealth Day 2017, marking 40 years since Commonwealth Day became a global celebration marked on the same day every year, on the second Monday in March. The Mayor and Councillors were delighted to raise the Commonwealth Flag in Francki Place, Cowes.

 

 

TREE-MENDOUS

Islanders have recycled 40 per cent more natural Christmas trees in 2017 compared to 2016. This year, 2174 bookings were made to collect trees; which are then sent for composting, compared with 1530 bookings last year. This year’s Christmas stars on the Christmas tree recycling league were Cowes, with residents in the town making 428 bookings. Ryde were second with 309 and Newport third with 284. Each of the towns significantly increased the amount of trees recycled compared to 2016, with Cowes residents almost doubling the amount of bookings made.

Well done Cowes!

Garden waste

Residents who have garden waste to dispose of can take it to either of the Island’s recycling centres at Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh or they can book a kerbside collection using the pre-paid garden waste sacks available from libraries and council help centres.
