To Reinstate or not to Reinstate the Bottle Bank Froxfield Village Hall

Reinstating the bottle bank

Since the bottle bank has been removed from outside Froxfield Village Hall, some villagers have been asking for the Parish Council to press East Hants to reinstate it.  The argument is that forcing residents to travel to Petersfield by car to recycle their bottles goes against the principles of a ‘green’ initiative.

We’re trying to gauge the strength of feeling behind this as we already have monthly bottle collections from each house and it’s likely that most people don’t go to Petersfield for the bottle bank alone.

All opinions are welcome.  Please send a message to and we’ll gather the various views and report back.
