Some Christmas gift ideas from the Council
For the bookworm, you can buy a concession card from the library for bestsellers, reserves and magazines. Our libraries also sell great stocking fillers for children such as the practical and colourful book carrier bag and CDs like 'Baby Rock & Rhyme' for the littlies.
The family fitness fanatic would no doubt value a concession card for our swimming pools.

While you're picking up your compost, take a browse at our Second Treasure store - you never know what second-hand gems you'll find on the shelf and as the name suggests - one man's trash is another man's treasure.
