1 Minutes of last meeting agreed.
2 Apologies for Absence: Michelle Aspinall-Baker, Paul Richens, Kath Richardson, Andrew Dakers, Catharine Browne,
3 Noticeboard: New poster ideas required! Perhaps our bags with pochettes, alongside information about plastic recycling – maybe some examples of recycled plastic items? ALL
4 Cotton Bag Project: We are expecting delivery very soon. Distribution will involve everybody! ALL
5 BRENTFORD MARKET: This continues to receive support regardless of the improvement works which is disrupting pedestrian traffic considerably! Perhaps we could find some items made from recycled products which we could display/demonstrate when we take a stall in the near future. LBH did have some torches etc made from recycled stuff which we had last time otherwise, can anyone think of something appropriate? PH VF
6 BRAG Newsletter: With many thanks to Catharine for putting all the submitted articles together – thank you contributors! – and after a few minor tweaks, will send it to the printers. Hugh has done an excellent job finding very competitive prices for printing and distribution so a big thank you to him, too. Louisa will look at the geography/population/number of households in our area of Brentford to find the most satisfactory distribution addresses. ALL
7 BRENTFORD FESTIVAL: Again this will be held on the first Sunday in September and in Blondin Park, as last year. Please keep the date in your diaries, further information in due course. ALL
8 GAZEBO: The one we used for our various events, which was damaged when it was given to us! – has finally collapsed. Louisa said she would check if the Recycling Team’s was not being used for Brentford Festival we may borrow it. (Thank you, Louisa!) LP
