BRENTFORD MARKET: This is still a success and we will ask when there will be a vacancy for us to take a stall, sharing with Friends of the Earth as we did last time. LBH Recycling Team to be asked if they have any promotional items we can use. PH VF


No Spitting/Anti Litter campaign: Following a recent petition Catharine has followed up with an email to check what actions LBH are taking and is waiting for a response, following the usual holding reply. Catharine has followed up and is awaiting response from the department concerned. CB


BRAG Newsletter: It was intended that we should produce an edition prior to the AGM but due to time pressures this was not possible so we must do something for Spring/Summer. Andrew is unable to help at this time so we will ask him if he can let us have the template and Catharine and Patti will have a go! Suggestions for articles: BRAG Bags, Brentford Works, New charity outlet at William Wilberforce, Great West Road, Brentford and anything else?  Members to draft pieces and send to Patti. ALL
