- Windfall apples or spoiled vegetables
- Tea bags
- Egg shells
- Coffee grounds

Appeal - WWI Peace Celebrations
A villager is looking for evidence of what WW1 peace celebrations went on in Rolleston. He has read two articles which have indicated that a memento of the occasion was given to every school child. (Other sources suggest a commemoration medallion or mug). He is hoping that someone in the village has one in their family archives/china cabinet/attic that could be photographed.
Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Read more about it in the planning section pages.
