Whether it’s plastic, paper, or aluminium,
the products and materials that can be used after they fulfill their
original purpose are far from worthless. In fact, most materials have
great recycling value. It is estimated that
up to 75% of
all the waste can be recycled or repurposed, a figure that how
impactful the process can be if done right. Almost everything we see
around us can be recycled, although different materials require
different techniques when they are recycled. Most of the commonly
recyclable materials include batteries, biodegradable waste, clothing,
electronics, garments, glass, metals, paper, plastics, and a lot more.
To find out where to recycle products that you can't put in your green
bin use the recycle now website
Reclaim the Mask! Recycle!
Blue disposable face masks can be recycled at most Wilko stores, the recycling box sits just outside the main door (town centre Wilko's)... there is no excuse for these to end up in landfill, see the video on how these are processed into boards
CAFOD is combining efforts with the DEC to launch the Afghanistan Crisis Appeal. In Afghanistan, 8 million people are on the brink of famine because of drought, collapsing economy, food shortages, conflict, and COVID. CAFOD is supporting sister Caritas agencies to reach communities most in need with food, clean water, and fuel. During Advent, when we open ourselves to the needs of others, let’s do all that we can to save lives. You can donate on the CAFOD website: cafod.org.uk/AfghanistanAppeal and please pray for the people of Afghanistan.
We are looking to recruit new Governors to support our vibrant and welcoming Catholic schools. We welcome interest especially from practising Catholics, as each Governing Body needs to have a majority of people who are Catholic. Governors help ensure the school is run effectively through having committee meetings covering a number of areas (e.g. Resources, Pastoral and Admissions, Teaching and Learning etc). Governors also oversee the school budget and help out with senior appointments at the school, as well as occasional challenging matters such as exclusions and staff discipline, though these are reassuringly infrequent. They are kept fully informed about all aspects of school life, which is very rich and varied. The Governing Body works well with the school leadership team, and are a welcoming group of people drawn from different walks of life who kindly give up their time to support the school and improve children’s life chances. If you feel this may be of interest to you, please feel free to contact the Headteacher at your local school who can give you more details about the role, and put you in contact with their current Chair of Governors. We hope this role may be attractive to you, and thank you for your support for the schools in St John the Baptist Catholic Multi Academy Trust.
The Trust has schools
in Norwich, Costessey, Great Yarmouth, Bungay, Beccles, Lowestoft,
King’s Lynn and Peterborough; please see the St John the Baptist
Catholic Multi Academy Trust website for details and locations.

is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc. A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.
Our aim is to help you to become more aware of God's presence in your life, listen to and reflect on God's word, grow in your relationship with God. We also have a number of prayer tools, retreats and resources to help supplement your prayer life.Pray as you go (pray-as-you-go.org)

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen

Visiting Support Service for Older People in Peterborough.
Age UK have identified the significant need for additional support to be made available to older people in Peterborough, we are therefore able to provide free extra assistance for those over 65 in Peterborough when they need it most; particularly when they are experiencing a difficult period, such as bereavement, ill health, financial worries or housing concerns. We listen to your thoughts and wishes and together we will plan a desired outcome that helps you to access the services and support networks you need. Our Visiting Support Service for Older People (VSSOP) enables older people to stay independent and maintain health and wellbeing, by providing a service that meets individual need.
We can assist with forms, benefits, blue badges, organise bills, and assist with housing choices. If someone has a caring role we can support with this. The service can adapt to individual changing needs such as aids and equipment and falls prevention support. We also can also offer information about social opportunities and how you might access them. The team will decide if support can be given over the phone or if a home visit is needed, staff will have full PPE and socially distance. For more information or support please contact:
01354-776110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
