Master Composters are volunteers who use their own skills and enthusiasm to raise awareness of the benefits of home composting such as how it can reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfill, saves money, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps to improve soil fertility. They also encourage more people to compost at home and assist with composting queries. More »
It's an initiative run by the council's waste management team, in conjunction with the Leicestershire Waste Partnership and charity Garden Organic.
A role of a Master Composter is to:
* raise awareness of the benefits of composting to the community
* become an expert at composting, reduce the amount of organic waste that goes to landfill
* encourage people to compost at home and help people who compost at home already
* free training will be provided, will learn new skills and build confidence
* and this only takes 30 hours of volunteering each year
The scheme is open to residents of Leicestershire (excluding Leicester City) and volunteers must be over 18. If anyone would like to apply to become an LCC Master Composter or would like more information about the role, please visit our site - http://www.lesswaste.org.uk/volunteering/.

The redevelopment plans for the Parish Centre are progressing and there are now 5 contractors who have been invited to tender for the project. Once received, all the tenders will be reviewed by the project management company and a shortlist compiled, with the final decision being made by full Council. Although no firm dates have been agreed at present it is hoped a decision for the contractor can be made at the meeting on 21st March 2017.
As the tender process moves forward and detailed programme timings become known, we will be publishing this information on the website to keep you up to date. » Less
