Planning Meeting

15 June 2021

7:30 pm

Zoom

We are getting together for an evening meeting to plan out the next few months. Ideas to think about so far include a potential action day on air quality, how we might contribute to the lead up to COP 26, litter picking and plastic pollution, and how to build publicity for our bee friendly sites and their link to biodiversity. Any other ideas welcome.

Air Quality Campaign

22 June 2021

3:45

Linslade Middle School, Mentmore Road.

We will be working with Linslade Middle school to draw attention to the dangers of engine emissions, particularly in places such schools where, at the start and end of the day, children and cars are concentrated together. We are aiming to make people ware of the additional pollution from engine idling and to encourage drivers to switch off engines while waiting.

This is open to all, members and non-members alike. Please come along and lend your support to this important issue.

Astral Park Litter Pick

4 July 2021

10:30am

Astral Park, Community Orchard

Come and spend the morning picking litter in and around the Community Orchard.

This work party has been specially timed to go with the celebratory picnic and folk music event in the afternoon. You don’t have to pick litter to come to the picnic, and you don’t have to stay for the picnic after picking litter, but together they make a lovely day out.
