EnviroAbility attract funding for Door Knocking Campaign

Well done to Martin and the team at EnviroAbility for obtaining another grant. The competition was fierce and only one in six applicants were successful.

Martin said, 'I am sure this success was largely due to fact that the local involvement and support for the scheme is so high. As we have come to expect where we see the name EnviroAbility, they have inbuilt some opportunities for other groups within the community. The staff from the project are to be recruited from students that are on their summer break from either college or university. We are looking to employ four people to work on a five week campaign that will help to identify the best ways to increase recycling in the area. We think that will be best achieved if the workers are committed to the principles of "Rethink Rubbish".'

Martin explained that the grant came from WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) and was given to EnviroAbility and Re-Box to visit and talk to Ross people on their door step about recycling. He went on to say that he hoped the success of the campaign will result in bringing new opportunities to the town. The funding and the project will help to increase recycling levels around Ross even more.

Watch out for your recycling visitor over the summer period. If you are interested in working on the project and can benefit from some 'real' money please call EnviroAbility on 01989 760919.

Ross-on-Wye Weather Station Readings

Ross-on-Wye Weather Station is located by the tennis courts and bowling green at 'Crossfields' and is one of the important stations around the country which regularly sends data to the Meteorological Office. This is why Ross-on-Wye is sometimes mentioned on the BBC weather reports. It is currently still a manually monitored station and readings are taken twice per day by husband and wife team, June and Rex Swallow.
