A PASSION for recycling has paid off for a Witney grandmother who has won a countywide competition.

Maureen McBain has become the latest winner of the Oxfordshire Waste Partnership’s recycling pledge contest.

Mrs McBain won the top prize – a year-long pass for Blenheim Palace – after filling out a questionnaire about her recycling habits.

She said: “It was a competition in the Round and About magazine, and it was just a list of things you had to tick if you recycled them. I wrote a comment saying I recycle everything and I won.”

She said her family – already regular visitors to Blenheim – would be making good use of the pass.
