Hart District Council would like residents to recycle any glass bottles, jars, etc, that they accumulate over the festive season.
They are happy to provide free extra boxes for recycling your glass. Or – you can pay £30 for an extra wheelie bin for your glass.

Hart District Council have teamed up with the Food Standards Agency to provide tips on how to cook your turkey so you and your family will be healthy over Christmas. (Obviously other meats are available – and the same tips would apply.)

It is my least favourite time of year – forget “Deck the halls with bows of Holly – Tis the season to be jolly” – it seems to be a case of “Deck the Halls with illuminated Holly – tis the season to blind and disorientate people like me”.
Don’t get me wrong – I like a well-lit Christmas tree as much as everyone else. (Even if my favourite Christmas decoration is a small triangular – or semicircular – thing with what look like small candles on it.)
My problems start when people decide to illuminate the outside of their houses so that passing aircraft – or even the International Space Station – can easily see them.
I am not going to quote the Nativity story at you but I always wonder what the Wise Men would have to follow if the story happened today??? How can a small star compete with all the light pollution caused by over-bright lights on houses???
Please remember some of us find it difficult to wander around near very bright lights.
There will be some events on in Hart District in the run-up to Christmas.

With the Christmas party season coming up the Police and Hart District Council have joined forces to highlight the dangers of pre-drinking before going on a night out.

I have one thing to add to that – not only does excessive consumption of alcohol increase your risks of becoming a victim of crime – it also shortens your life-expectancy due to preventable conditions, especially if you do it on a regular basis.
With Christmas coming up it might be an idea to get advice on preventing yourself from becoming a victim of crime.
There will be a roadshow in Fleet on this topic on 1 December 2017, between 11am and 1pm at Hart Shopping Centre.
