Summer Newsletter

You can now download your copy of the Summer Newsletter, bringing you up to date with our doings, and of relevant developments from further afield. We hope you enjoy your read.

As you'd expect, we profile our own (very brief) AGM and talks on combatting the scourge of plastic, taking place TONIGHT at The Royal, from 7.30p.m.. And we hope we might see you there! But more widely, we hope you'll find there is material of interest to you in the newsletter's pages.

Thanks for your continuing support.

What a week!

What a week! Resignations, reshuffles, prospects of a cup (but without a cabinet?), and more...…….all due to culminate on:
  • Thursday, 12th July, 7.30p.m., The Royal Hotel, Hayfield, for Sustainable Hayfield's 20 minute AGM followed by presentations and discussion around what we can do to reduce our use of that damned plastic.
Amidst dramas elsewhere, we'll get sensible top tips and good practice advice on things we can do, and how we can persuade others to do what needs to be done. We'll be helped by brief talks by:
  • Liz Longden from Rethink Plastic High Peak;
  • Esther Morrison from the Food Assembly, and;
  • our own Lesley German talking about Terracycle in Hayfield.
There'll be chance to find out about the Plastic Free July initiative and we'll end with an inspirational message from David Attenborough, no less, on the response received to the Blue Planet series and its messages about plastic waste.
It will all happen in a convivial atmosphere (no walk outs or red cards anticipated), in some contrast to events elsewhere. We hope you can and will join us. We look forward to seeing you!
