Real Men in Kington!
Kington launches the Real Men’s Alliance
Kington Area Real Men’s Alliance, known as KARMA, has launched a new support initiative, called ‘Real Men in Kington’. The group kicked off in October and there will be further meetings on the last Sunday of November and January. Meetings are held in the Zrazzy Committee Room at the Burton Hotel in Kington from 8 to 9.30pm. Sessions will be self directed, flexible, and open to all men. It is anticipated that eventually small groups may establish around certain topics. There are also plans to host pubic events, with guest speakers and film showings.
Mark Phillips is coordinating the group, and hopes that it will offer mutual support, challenge stereotypes, and enable participants to express and listen to one another’s thoughts and feelings.

Green refuse collection is even greener
Presteigne and Norton Zero Waste Project is now using Biodiesel to fuel the green refuse truck and the bobcat at the Presteigne depot. This is being refined on-site using a Biobot biodiesel processor at Cwm Harry's Newtown depot from recycled vegetable oil left out by Presteigne and Norton residents with their recycling .
They will collect waste cooking oil on collection day if left out for neatly in clear leak-proof bottles.
