In September a dozen members and partners visited the Milton Keynes Waste Disposal site.
This was very interesting as:
Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park brings together three state-of-the-art technologies – mechanical treatment, anaerobic digestion and advanced thermal treatment - to treat ‘black sack’ waste collected from homes in Milton Keynes.
Together, the technologies increase the amount of recyclable materials which are removed from the waste, in turn cutting the amount of rubbish sent to landfill to around 3%.
The anaerobic digestion and advanced thermal treatment also generate enough energy to power around 11,000 homes - similar to the number of households in Wolverton and Newport Pagnell combined. See https://wasteservices.amey.co.uk/
 

The July meeting was a lively one with members and partners listening to their favourite tunes courtesy of You Tube and Spotify while in August we learned from David Hadfield all about Boccia – a Paralympic sport for athletes with severe disabilities affecting motor skills. David is the President of the Boccia International Sports Federation. David brought some balls and members had a go. Judging was harder than it looks!!! We know of one local school which plays Boccia and will make contact at the start of term. https://bocciaengland.org.uk/
