5 winter activities we can't wait to start doing
Nov 13 2022 Share

The recent change in weather just goes to show that, with all of its downfalls, a lot of people love a big night in. The winter season is all about curling up in your pyjamas with a warm cup of hot chocolate and a few friends or family members by your side. That said here are 5 winter activities we can’t wait to start doing!

Game Nights

Whether it’s a long, intense game of Monopoly or a cool, calm case of poker, Winter’s seasonal setting is the perfect backdrop for a well-organised board game night. Complement your activities with a few platters or wholesome meal and you’ve got an awesome night ahead!

Baking Sessions

Being the food-loving country we are, cooking does not come to a halt during the summer season, but there’s something special about winter that makes you want to break out the treats and spices and get a few cookies or brownies going in the oven. What’s your favourite winter bake?

Movie Nights

After months upon months of revelling in the sunshine, a few hours spent in the darkness escaping to your favourite cinematic world are just what you need for a well-deserved refresh. With so many incredible films coming out in the next few months, we anticipate quite a few visits to the cinema this winter.

Christmas Decorations

Enjoy it or not, turning your house into a Christmas wonderland is an inevitable activity this time of year. Unless you’re one of those people who are all about Christmas and have decorated already, the metres of tinsel, gargantuan Christmas tree and singing Santa Clauses are waiting to be unboxed.

Reading

The simplest of activities often tends to be the most satisfying. Admit it, we all fantasise about sitting next to the window sill with a good book and a hot cup of tea as we listen to the rhythmic pitter patter of the rain. If you’ve thought about this but never had the chance to do it, now may be your chance.

What winter activity are YOU looking forward to?

Waste separation to become mandatory; up to €150 in fines amongst proposals

Waste separation to become mandatory; up to €150 in fines amongst proposals
Nov 13 2022 Share

Waste separation is set to become mandatory in Malta, with the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) opening a public consultation regarding the country’s waste situation.

Both private homes and commercial establishments will have to follow such rules, with proposals including that of switching the black bag with a transparent one and up to €150 fines for failure to separate waste.

Separation considers various kinds of waste such as paper, metal, plastic, glass and biowaste such as fruit and vegetable matter. This process is set to be introduced gradually in Malta after six months of campaigning to educate and inform the public.

ERA is proposing that failure to separate waste for the first time fill result in a warning for households, with a €25 fine for the second infraction and €50 fine for the third. Commercial establishments could be fined €75 for the second time and €150 for the third.

ERA Deputy Director Claire Cordina Borg told TVMNews that the purpose of the laws is not to fine people, but to arrive at a point where the volume of waste in the black bag is reduced.

Do you agree?

Romeo Romano garden to become environmental learning hub for kids
Nov 12 2022 Share

Environment Minister Miriam Dalli has addressed various pleas by locals to scratch the plans to turn a Grade 1 protected building into a restaurant at the Romeo Romano Gardens in Santa Venera. 

Instead, the area will be turned into an educational hub with a sensory garden for children with autism. The first phase of the restoration involves an investment of €1 million.

During the signing of the agreement between GreenServ, Parks Malta, Nature Trust Malta and Eco-school, Minister for the Environment Miriam Dalli said that this deal will give the opportunity to children to learn practical skills about sustainability and preservation. 

Dalli explained that the original plans to convert the space into a restaurant had been scrapped following much uproar and that the government is listening to public pleas to make this a space designed to improve the quality of life. 

Dalli also recalled the €7 million project, spread over 7 years, which will begin next year, aimed at giving each locality an open space as well as an agency responsible for such projects. 

The original plans had faced backlash from the likes of NGO Moviment Graffiti who had said that the need for a quiet space is far greater than the need to consume, especially in such a highly congested area.’
