Local History Event

Composters

Call for volunteers to join the largest master composter team in the country

 

Have you got a little time to spare? Do you like chatting to people and more importantly are you passionate about composting already or new to it and keen to learn? If the answer is a resounding ‘YES’ perhaps you would like to become a Norfolk Master Composter.

Norfolk County Council is currently recruiting for new volunteers to join the largest master composter team in the country. Each of our 80 volunteers commit to spending just 30 hours each year passing on composting hints and tips by chatting to friends, neighbours or even by giving a presentation to their nearby school, writing a piece for their local paper, parish magazine or allotment newsletter or helping establish a community/village composting scheme.

It’s easy to become one of the next 20 master composters by simply signing up for a free two day training course hosted by national charity Garden Organic, at Holt Hall Environmental and Outdoor Learning Centre on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March. There are 20 places on the course and people just need to be over 18 and live in Norfolk to sign up. Course and travel expenses will be paid for so people only need to provide their time.

The course will give all the information volunteers need to help other people start or continue composting at home whether they live in a country manor or city flat. And to help volunteers achieve the aim of spreading their new composting expertise there’ll be expert advice from Garden Organic and Norfolk County Council’s Waste Reduction team.

To find out more and apply for a place email mastercomposters@norfolk.gov.uk or call 0344 800 8020.

BT scam email

Watch out for a new BT scam email which looks really genuine. It may be addressed to you personally. It says your payment has been declined and asks you to click on a link to “Review Account Information”. However if you hover over this link (without clicking on it) you will see that it is not a link to a BT site. The other links on the email appear genuine.

Take care!
