NOT A SOFT APPROACH TO PLASTIC
Boroondara Council is offering a temporary Soft Plastic Recycling Service until a more long term solution is sourced. They are looking to take small household items such as plastic bags, bread bags, fresh produce bags, biscuit and chip packets and bubble wrap, plus any other soft plastics you would not place in the usual recycle bin.
These items can be left at either the Boroondara Recycling & Waste Centre at 648 Riversdale Road, or Kew Depot Recycling Centre at 31 Hutchinson Drive. Please check with the centre before you drop off your waste to ensure that they are not full.
Please support this initiative if you can.
LAUGH YOUR WAY INTO THE WEEKEND
Before you turn up your nose at an animated movie, let me enlighten you on a bit of a secret. This weeks Funny Friday Matinee is the Disney classic ‘Aladdin’…… Do I still not have your interest?
Well, in the early 90’s Disney established that it was an arduous chore for most parents to sit complaisantly throughout a movie length kids cartoon, so crafted the concept to incorporate subtle adult humour into the screenplay. There first test case was Aladdin, discarding convention and rolling the dice by unleashing the comical genius, and genie, in Robin Williams who was given free licence to improvise his way through the dialogue, leaving the animators to keep up with him, not the other way around. What Disney achieved was ground breaking and masterful by producing a movie children of all ages can relate to, with more than enough mature humour to appease the adults in the audience.
Set to a magnificent soundtrack and fast pace animation beyond its years, take 90 minutes out of your day to just laugh and feel good. Friday 8 September at 1pm in Hester Class.
Just try and prove me wrong.
