Because of Covid-19, there will be no Notting Hill Carnival in late August this year. The arrangers recognise that social distancing would be impossible for an event that tends to attract one million people.
When the council closed down much of its services on 18 March, one of the victims was Too Big For The Bin, the paid-for rubbish collection of items to big or bulky for the regular bin. Well, now it’s back and collections can be booked online. The recycling centres at Smugglers Way and Cringle Street have also reopened, but only for delivery of garden waste and general black bagged waste.
