Bin Collection Changes start week beginning 31st October 2016

From Monday 31st October 2016 your black lidded rubbish bin will be collected every other week. 

 This means all bins will be collected on an alternate weekly basis: one week we’ll collect your black lidded rubbish bin, and the following week the orange lidded recycling and green lidded garden waste bins will be collected. Your bin collection day may change.

Click here to check your new bin collection day and for lots of tips on how you can recycle more and reduce waste. 

Neighbourhood Watch in Biddenham – Volunteers needed

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most effective crime reduction initiatives and its values are recognised by our partners, the Police, Fire & Rescue Service and the Borough and Parish Councils. It’s all about people getting together and actively having a positive impact on crime in their area.

More volunteer support is needed in Biddenham. For further information click the following link Neighbourhood Watch

 

Programme of Archaeology Talks At The Higgins

My name is Liz Pieksma and I am the Keeper of Archaeology at The Higgins, Bedford and I am very keen to share the Archaeological Collections of Bedfordshire in our care with other interested folk. To this end I have taken several themes and created informal slide presentations followed by an object handling and nattering time.

As you probably are all aware The Higgins Art Gallery and Museum, Bedford offers a range of tours/talks/ activities and exhibitions. We do have less-abled, secure parking in the courtyard and there is The Pantry on site for refreshments etc so please pop in to see us sometime.
