Bin men play catch up on missed collections
BINMEN are playing catch-up with Gloucestershire's uncollected waste.
Many collections by Gloucester City Council, Stroud District Council, Tewkesbury Borough Council and the Forest of Dean District Council were halted because of recent bad weather.
Forest of Dean officials have said refuse not collected last Friday will now be picked up today and tomorrow.
Outstanding refuse collections from Thursday will be collected tomorrow and Thursday.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.

A spokeswoman said: "Residents in these areas are asked to leave out their black refuse wheeled bins this week so they can be emptied.
"The scheduled refuse crews have been emptying some bins outside of the schedule where time and capacity allow."
Gloucester's waste is being collected as normal and there is no backlog.
In Tewkesbury borough, collections have also returned to normal. Any missed collections are being picked up on residents' regular pick-up days.
In Stroud, collections returned to normal today after problems in some areas last week.
Each of the local authorities held a telephone conference yesterday to monitor the situation.
