Sugar prices are expected to fall further in 2007, according to the International Sugar Organization’s monthly market report on the world sugar market. However, it said sugar commodities in January were in line with expectations.The report said that world raw sugar prices were expected to continue to fall because of a global glut in 2006/07. The price decreased from 11.42 cents/lb at the beginning of the month to a four-month low of 10.66 cents/lb on 30 January. The monthly average was 10.95 cents/lb, the lowest monthly average since September 2005, according to the report.White sugar values in the second half of the month partly recovered and consolidated at around 15 cents/lb, which resulted in a monthly average of 14.96 cents/lb, down 5% from the previous month.The report said that, in 2007, sugar output in India, the world’s second-largest producer, will hit a new record high and that India alone is providing world production with an additional two to three million tonnes.Sugar production is also expected to grow in Thailand, according to the Thai Sugar Millers Group. China, the world’s third-largest producer, is also heading to a record crop of above 11 million tonnes, compared to less than nine million in the previous season.Brazil’s exports have slowed down, but still remained significantly higher than in the previous crop year and Australia’s raw cane sugar industry is struggling to make a recovery from cyclone and flood damage.
I want to emphasise to everyone in the Salisbury and Amesbury area that nobody, adult or child, should pick up any foreign object which could contain liquid or gel, in the interests of their own safety. This in practice means do not pick up containers, syringes, needles, cosmetics or similar objects, made of materials such as metal, plastic or glass.This is particularly important as families are starting to prepare for their children’s summer holidays and so I am asking that people are extra vigilant. To be clear: do not pick up anything that you haven’t dropped yourself.Life continues in Salisbury and Amesbury and I want to be clear that the overall threat to the public is unchanged and remains low. I also want to highlight that those areas that have been cleaned and released to the public over the past few weeks are safe, and should be used normally.You do not need to seek advice from a health professional unless you are experiencing symptoms. If you are concerned, you should call NHS 111 and Wiltshire Police has also established a helpline to offer further advice: 0800 092 0410.As before, you should continue to follow the advice of the police and that of Public Health England.

Three communities were awarded grants this week by the Vermont Downtown Development Board to fund local infrastructure improvements such as new sidewalks and signage.The Vermont Downtown Development Board announced the awards totaling $108,423 for Brattleboro, Burlington, and Hartford (White River Junction). The funds, which are from the state’s Downtown Transportation Fund, are available to communities that are part of the Vermont Downtown Program. Established in 1994, the Vermont Downtown Program helps invest in the economic growth and cultural landscape of Vermont’s cities, villages and towns.Awards were made to:* Brattleboro – $15,600 to support improved directional, or ‘wayfinding’ signage. A total of 21 signs will be installed, guiding visitors to key destinations within Brattleboro’s Designated Downtown.* Burlington – $17,960 for Lake Street improvements associated with the Moran Plant redevelopment. The street will be extended, the bike path relocated and improved, and additional parking will be built. The Downtown Board also approved $30,000 to create two new constructed wetlands, providing natural treatment for stormwater in the project area.* White River Junction – $74,863 for sidewalk improvements along South Main Street. An additional $18,874 was provided to construct a rain garden on Bridge Street, associated with construction planned for the railroad bridge. The rain garden will help filter and reduce stormwater runoff in the area.‘These awards are part of our on-going commitment to support the state’s downtowns, and the improvements needed to make them pedestrian and visitor friendly,’ said Noelle Mackay, Commissioner of the Department of Economic, Housing and Community Development and Chair of the Downtown Development Board. ‘The projects funded by the board are important improvements that will encourage investment in downtown businesses and housing, which are critical to the success of our downtowns.’The Burlington and White River Junction projects both included ‘low impact development’ elements, with state capital funding provided by the Agency of Natural Resources through the Downtown Board. Burlington’s constructed wetlands will collect, store and filter stormwater from the adjacent street and parking areas, reducing pollution to Lake Champlain. The rain garden in White River Junction will intercept and filter stormwater along Bridge Street and adjacent parking area, reducing pollution in the White River. The rain garden and the constructed wetlands are among a number of strategies designed to treat and filter stormwater on site, rather than piping it to a wastewater treatment plant or letting it contaminate adjacent streams.At the same meeting, the board added Bakersfield and Danville to the growing list ‘Designated Village Centers,’ and renewed the Village Center Designation for Bethel. The 103 village centers participating in the program are able to access tax credits to help rehabilitate older and historic buildings, as well as priority consideration by several state programs.
