WBMC to be held in Brighton, Sept 2007

Excellent news. The World Beard and Moustache Championship will be held in Brighton next year! Fab. I’m afraid my paltry beard won’t be fit to enter, but still it’ll be fun to watch the contestants

train defecator hunted by police

from bbc news website

Train defecator hunted by police

A man has been defecating in trains across south-east England, causing damage costing £60,000 to repair.

British Transport Police said the man had struck on at least 30 trains since August, smearing excrement inside carriages.

He waits until he is alone in the carriage before committing the offence.

“This is a serious public health issue as well as being exceptionally anti-social – we need to locate this man,” said Det Con Donna Fox.

She said his offences had resulted in many carriages being taken out of service, causing disruption and cancellations and serious inconvenience to the travelling public.

There was also £60,000 in damage and cleaning costs.

“There is no particular pattern as to when he appears,” said Ms Fox.

“He travels to various areas and at different times of the day and different days of the week.

“We have been trawling through CCTV images to try and track the man and remain hopeful that members of the public may know him and where he lives.

“On at least one occasion CCTV footage shows the man being disturbed by a passenger walking through a train.

“If anyone sees this man travelling on the railway network they should not approach him, but call the police or alert train staff immediately.”

more worms

got a response from the council to my email.

Dear Mr. Holland,

Thank you for your email. Please accept my sincere apologies for the
delayed response, caused by an administration error at our offices.

I am sorry you have had cause to complain. You do raise a number of valid
points regarding people who have access to composting in their home, that
live in the city centre. Whilst I know that the council is committed to
reviewing its waste strategy in this area, I have asked for further
information regarding subsidising of composters and wormeries or
alternative solutions for you from colleagues, and we shall contact you
again shortly.

Please reply to cityclean@brighton-hove.gov.uk or telephone (01273) 292929
for further information or assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Tim Read
Customer Service Team Leader

..still no change on the website.

trying out a box scheme

just ordered an organic vegetable box from real food direct. i’ve been meaning to do this and cut down on my food miles for a while and have finally got around to it. i chose them as a friend said they were good. i’ve also seen a few advertised in infinity foods, but they were only phone numbers and to be honest i found it a bit easier to order online just for convenience to start with, although i might check out the other schemes as well at some point.
i’ll post with feedback about what was in the box when i get it (hopefully friday)
