Canal side Recycling: The last heard from LBH was that we should wait until SITA have resolved their teething troubles. We should continue to follow up. PH LBH


Osterley Day: Sunday 28th June: Several members attended and reported the event was successful in comparison to last year. In addition, the weather was good!

St Paul’s School Summer Fair: Saturday 4 July. Brag was there, with the ducks.  An excellent event, well attended.


Future Events: 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. Paul will bring the worms. Further details nearer the time.

Ivybridge Estate Fun Day: Sunday 12 July 12:00 to 4:00. We should meet there at 11:45 to set up.  Paul, unfortunately, is unable to attend so we shall do this event wormless this year.



Young Green Voices: Award Presentation:  The ceremony was held at St Paul’s School in the school hall on Thursday 2nd July at 6:30 pm.  Certificate, designed by Sarah and printed by LBH, were prepared for all the children who took part in the project and presented to those who were able to attend the ceremony.  All our local Councillors attended and presented certificates.  Cllr Reid was unable to attend.  Nicola and Cindy from Hounslow’s Waste and Recycling Team were welcome attendees.


New member of Waste and Recycling team at Hounslow: Alex Rigge, Waste and Recycling Officer (Waste) has recently been appointed and is in the process of arranging for some posters to be produced for future use in the noticeboard. We have invited him to our next meeting and, in addition to us telling him what we do, we have asked him to bring us up to date with the Council’s plans.  In particular, we have been receiving mixed messages through the media about what happens to plastics collected for recycling and would be grateful for details of Hounslow’s solutions.
