Our information pages
Here you will find everything from visiting times at hospitals to details of where you can recycle plastic, cans and clothes.
There are also out of hours pharmacy opening times, sunrise and sunset times, tide tables as well as train timetables, journey planners, emergency and helpline numbers and much more.
As things such as opening times can change quite regularly, we suggest you call the venue before setting off.
All of the details in this section were correct when compiled. If, however, times have subsequently changed, let us know here.
If we have missed something - or you feel we should create new sections - let us know here.
For all of the details of events in your area, visit our regularly updated What's On calendar. Live music, festivals, agricultural shows, meetings, blood donor sessions - they're all here
