on Tuesday 2 July 2013

Minutes of last meeting agreed.


Welcome: to Eleanor Stewart, who is a geography student preparing a dissertation about local recycling groups and their effects, to whom we offered as much help as we can give. ALL


Apologies for Absence: Michelle Aspinall-Baker, Douglas Benford, Andrew Dakers, Virginia Fassnidge, Kath Richardson, Paul Richens, Samantha Langton  (Brentford Dock Management)


Noticeboard: Cindy will let us have some current publicity material.


Cotton Bag Project: We have now established a price for 250 cotton bags, long handles, printed one colour on one side, £295.  Words under the BRAG logo agreed, “No plastic init”.  Now that we have received the funding we can go ahead with the order.


BRENTFORD FESTIVAL: Will definitely be held on Sunday, 1st September, in Blondin Park, which is accessible from Boston Manor Road, Northfield Avenue and Windmill Road. As you know, our stand will be adjacent to West London Waste and Home Start.  This will mean we can all cooperate, borrow children’s games from Home Start and publicity material from WLW.  We agreed that BRAG would promote composting and wormeries in addition to our usual – recycle, repair, reuse, reduce mantra! ALL


BRENTFORD MARKET: This continues to be held in Market Place every Sunday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. with great success. We will have a stall, sharing with Friends of the Earth, on 28th July. PLEASE, can we ask as many of you as possible to come and support us! ALL


MARIE CURIE Charity Event High Tea: this was held on Saturday 29th June in the Residents Club Room at Brentford Dock. There was a disappointing response but £400 was raised.
