This is a quick update following our first event last week, so that we get out links, contacts and copies of presentations (where we have them) so that we can keep the momentum going – getting us all doing more!
But I have to say what a great event it was and thanks to all of those who came along. It was heartening to hear all the great work that people are already doing and have been doing for a number of years, as well as those individual actions that add up to much more when we all make a positive change.
Also we thought that it would be good to have all the information that was given out in one place so you can refer back to it and also spread the news wider for people who couldn’t make the event. There are links to the presentations given plus email, web and social media addresses for all the groups. If you have a question and it’s not answered by the information given then I’m sure any one of them would be happy for you to contact them or you can send us a message.
I certainly learnt lots, so am off to put some into action - watch this space for my journey into the textile and clothing story.
We've also added to our ideas page a waste free grocery shopping locally - take a look and let us know if we need to add anything.
