Minutes of last meeting agreed.

Noticeboard: Poster for Sonic Recycler to be enlarged and displayed. DL


Battery Box: Virginia, Diana and Patti emptied the box at Somerfield on 13 March and 62 kgs of batteries taken to the recycling centre.  As we understand that Morrison’s will be taking over from Somerfield from 22 April, approaches will be made to the new management so that we may continue this very good service. DL PH


Canal side Recycling: This was raised with the officers from the recycling team at a meeting some time ago.  They said they would follow up with the new contractor, SITA, but have not yet reported back. Patti to request update. PH


Sonic Recycler, Saturday 9 May 2009 from 4:00 till late.  Brag, along with the LBH recycling team, will have stalls.  Up to date materials for display and give-aways to be requested from LBH! We should plan to man the stand from 3:30 to 7pm. We will discuss arrangements for a rota at our next meeting.   Kath, can you arrange to add this event to the Entertainment section of the TW8 website? Douglas has posters which he will pass on to anyone to display. There will also be a showing of the film “Age of Stupid”. DB ALL


Future Events: Saturday May 16th from 12:00 to 4 pm is to be the Brentford May Fayre in St Paul’s Park, a traditional fair with lots of stalls and games, amongst other things.  We will be there with the brag stall and ducks for which Diana has prepared some new questions.

Brentford Festival 2009: This very successful event will be held in Boston Manor Park on Sunday, 6 September.  Again, we will have a presence together with LBH’s Recycling Team.  Further details to follow.



Young Green Voices: Sarah showed us the almost completed version!  It is very impressive!  A copy will be made available for us all to see and check before going to the printers on Tuesday.  Delivery will take place by early May. A suggestion that the Council may like to give the schools taking part some recognition – perhaps a certificate to be awarded by Councillor Reid at a Civic Centre or Watermans event? Perhaps Natasha can help. SH                PH


Leaflet Distribution: Discuss future brag leaflet distribution at Brentford Station at a future meeting. PR


Used Furniture etc: Hugh will come back to us with more information about the furniture and household equipment from Brentford Dock residents so that we can circulate brag members. HP
