Minutes, March 2014

Brentford Recycling Action Group
Minutes of Meeting held in the Directors’ Meeting Room,
Brentford Dock
on Tuesday 4 March 2014

Attending: Patti Horsnell, Hugh Picton, Rukmini West, Virginia Fassnidge, Douglas Benford, Catharine Browne, Wendy Mackenzie, Thomas Burgess and Louisa Perkins, LBH





Minutes of last meeting agreed.


Apologies for Absence: Michelle Aspinall-Baker, Paul Richens, Kath Richardson, Andrew Dakers


Noticeboard:  Poster subject: “if you are disposing of clothes, etc, take them to the charity shop.”  We had planned to make a combined effort and prepare the poster at the meeting but we ran out of time so Rukmini and Virginia agreed to proceed before the next meeting. ALL


Cotton Bag Project: The feedback from the outlets that had a supply of bags has been very positive.  The general consensus is that they could all dispose of a further supply. Douglas advised that we have £2,585 in the bank and therefore we can order a further supply. HP PH


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. PH VF


No Spitting/Anti Litter campaign: We have had no response to our request so we will pursue this no further. CB


BRAG Newsletter: Suggestions for articles include: BRAG Bags, Brentford Works, charity outlet at William Wilberforce, Great West Road, Brentford, perhaps something from David Eagles? Cultivate London? Ideas engaging more people in composting? And anything else.  Members to prepare copy and send to Patti and Catharine by Tuesday 18 March. ALL


LBH Recycling Team reorganisation: Thomas and Louisa, whom we were pleased to welcome,  brought us up to date with the recent changes to the recycling team and will let us have an organisation chart.  We will continue to use Thomas as our main contact with Louisa as second and they will keep us informed of any future amendments.
