  1. Find it difficult to understand why the council cancel collections on snowy days. Our milkman and postperson + all the food deliveries (Tesco, Sainsbury, Morrison’s etc.) and the parcels for on-line shoppers all seem to deliver safely and successfully.
    No offer of reduction in our council tax! To add to the insult the have the nerve to suggest we take our recycling to centres ourselves. Would that be in the snow.?
