"Bin Men" on their Bikes

Hundreds of employees from waste management firm, SITA UK, have taken part in a 2,400 mile, UK cross-country cycle tour to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The winding route, designed to include as many of SITA UK’s facilities as possible, made the journey almost three times as long as the traditional Land’s End to John O’ Groats cycle route of 874 miles.
SITA UK manages the collection of waste and recycling on behalf of South Gloucestershire Council and operates four Sort It! recycling centres. CEO David Palmer-Jones said: 'Unfortunately, cancer is something that affects us all, which is why we have chosen to give something back by attempting to raise enough money to fund a Macmillan nurse for a whole year.'

An a-mazing challenge for summer

You'll be a-mazed at what's going on for children in the library this summer. It's Mythical Maze, Summer Reading Challenge 2014! The challenge begins on 12 July and runs until 13 September. It's free to join in the fun, and there'll be free activities throughout the holiday to help children complete the challenge.
