I suppose, on reflection, it is a little alarming to see a thirty-something stranger, red as a beetroot, gurning sweatily while looking deep into your eyes. But not everyone feels this way about the first month of the year. The thing is… I can’t help myself.. I am experiencing such paroxysms of delight that they physically cannot be contained. Cornwall councillor Rob Nolan said on Twitter he had been trying to help people who had not had their trees collected and tweeted that there were "still lots left," as reported by the Local Democracy Reporting Service .
