Give and Take Day, Brentford Dock: Remains in abeyance  


BRAG web site: Kath continues to do brilliantly with this. She suggested we might be able to apply for funding, in the form of a grant, perhaps? Hugh said he would look into the possibility but if anyone else has any ideas, please let us know.Reminder: Everyone please have a good look at the website, checking where possible.  The Community section still needs some added script and the links need checking.  Hugh agreed to concentrate on the Travel section, Virginia on Energy which they will do soon. Any suggestions for additions to the Downloads page will be welcomed, together with documents for insertion? Please submit updates to Kath as soon as possible. ALL


Noticeboard: Hugh replaced previous display with posters showing the artwork from the updated calendars which have been distributed to all households. HP


BRAG NEWSLETTER: Minor amendments to be made and then will be ready to be sent to Heidelberg for printing. As mentioned, they have agreed to do this for us as part of an equipment test run and we are in the process of obtaining the necessary paper. The distribution can then be organised. AD PH


Composting Workshop: The workshop supported by LBH which was held at Brentford Dock residents’ club room on Thursday 8 March was a tremendous success. Cindy has requested that if funding can be provided, would Brentford Dock Management Committee be willing to host another, to  which Sam agreed.    Further news at a later date.


Brentford picnic: Confirming that as Brentford Carnival 2012 has been cancelled, we will join the picnic which will take place in Boston Manor Park, all participants providing their own refreshments, on Sunday afternoon 2nd September.  Brag will join in!


WLWA: Sarah Ellis is arranging a training session for LFHW, specifically how to train up other people to get the messages out there (ie get some community champions in place).  WRAP are happy to deliver the training and have given a date of 18 May. It’s a half day of training so possibly 10 am to 1 pm. Any volunteers to go on this training? If so, please let Sarah or a brag committee member know by 12 April. Venue hasn’t been decided yet but will probably be in Hounslow.
