  2. In 1977 my family went to California. Outside my wife’s friend’s house a man with a little van came to collect newspapers, bottles etc. that were in piles outside the house and took them away for recycling. When we got home to Coventry my wife Shelagh wrote to Margaret Thatcher to ask, why can’t we have recycling here. This letter resulted in a long reply from the labour City Engineers department saying that recycling wasn’t viable. Much later The People Party started in Coundon in Coventry where we live and Finham. They became The Green Party, and prompted by a big hole in the ozone layer it became a political issue, with votes in it! Now there is the biggest threat mankind has faced, when are we going to do something about it as a world? I felt I would like to mention the concerns, and efforts since of my wife Shelagh who is recovering from a stroke.
