It's International Plastic Bag Free today. Great day to look out those reusable bags you've got and make sure you take them with you when you go shopping.

Remember Lee Anderson? The Tory MP and bogus chef who says you can eat your tea on 30p. Now he’s trying to silence women for telling the truth about the Tories’ appalling 1.3% rape conviction record. No-one is going to stop us standing up for victims.

Well worth putting on the kettle and having a read 👇🏽… it’ll get your chuckle muscles going 🤣🤣🤣
I’ve been told my last thread on #TipsForNewDocs was too sensible, so I’ve decided to correct this. 1) When starting on your ward, it’s important to assert dominance. Sit on the ward clerks chair, and when you get called out, say nothing and stare them out.

Today our very own Jacob was announced a @DianaAward Winner 2022! From leading our campaign to kick junk food out of sports, to fighting for healthier school food and raising his voice at @10DowningStreet to end junk food ads — it's hard sum up just how much Jacob has done! ❤️

Putting prevent at all levels at the top makes so much sense. Watch out for the BwD campaign to reduce household waste starting in July @BwDBins @BwdSally
Ian Bowles @WRAP_UK shares a hierarchy of methods for tackling food and drink waste. Prevention being the number 1 method ahead of recycling. #CIEHFoodSafety #FoodWaste #LoveFoodHateWaste
