“The UK’s set of climate projections are the best window we have on how climate change is likely to affect us out to the end of the century,” said Professor Jason Lowe OBE*, the lead for UKCP – the UK’s climate projections. The latest iteration of climate projections for the UK were released in 2018, […]

I’m very pleased to feature the second post from Peter Claxton on Cottingham. Peter rekindled his love of history at university following his retirement having spent 40 years working in IT. He now focuses most of his research time on Kingston upon Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire during the 19th and the first half […]

Cottingham’s Council Housing, Part II from 1930: New Forms of Housing Provision — Municipal Dreams

While this wooden footbridge prompted my post, I thought I’d add a few words about Old Vicarage Gardens in East Ruston where it can be found. Like many English gardens, it’s a series of themed garden rooms that make the most of micro-climates, both natural and created. Being close to the North Sea, the garden […]

There are three candidates running for Mayor and an additional 83 running for 16 seats on Council. Out of the 16 Districts, there is only one uncontested seat. The letter to candidates […]

I’m delighted to feature today the second of two guest posts by Lynne Dixon examining the work of some of our early female housing campaigners and reformers.

The Role of the Women’s Housing Sub-Committee: ‘Homes fit for Heroines’ — Municipal Dreams

Greetings friends! We’ve been utilizing the unprecedented ‘Indian Summer’ weather to get as much done outside as possible before we slip back into the usual weather we can expect this time of year. (Funnily enough, even the news site has referred to our warmish autumn weather as *Indian Summer*, although I think that term […]

Late summer and fall are the time when Brown-Eyed Susans, Black-Eyed Susans, and other members of the genus Rudbeckia come into their own. This year has given us a chance to consider how some of these species perform in a year of moderate drought and with no supplemental water provided. Let me be up front […]

The Susans Cope With Drought — gardeninacity

So, how’ve you been? Staying well and safe, but busy? Busy is good. Since this pandemic started, everything has changed, but repurpose, recycle, and reuse are still good things. We wanted to change our kitchen eating area from a round table and round rug to a rectangular set up. The local Habitat store wouldn’t take […]

Another of the lost garden seat posts – no 15! This is my 15th post in this occasional series dedicated to the humble garden seat, a garden feature I am fascinated by, by the huge variety of designs, by the large number there are around and by how varied they are in comfort level! This […]

Are You Sitting Comfortably – 15 — greenbenchramblings

As wildfires continue to rage in North and South America, Met Office Chief Scientist Professor Stephen Belcher examines what has led to the potentially record-breaking scale of fires and what science is needed to contain the risks.  Last year wildfires ravaged Australia. This year has seen reports of extensive fires in the Amazon, in California, and earlier this year during the hot spell, also in the UK. Even the area within the Arctic Circle is experiencing an extraordinary fire season, with thawing permafrost exposing large areas […]
