WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING

3 September 2017 -Brentford festival

Our stall  featured the Clean Air Campaign and also the Bee Cause, with Jules in the FoE big bee costume. Despite the rather miserable weather the stall was quite well visited and many campaign cards were signed.

 

An additional attraction was the Lifestyle Tips Lucky Dip.

Suggestions included:

Mix olive oil with ground sea salt and a little brown sugar to make a natural exfoliating scrub”,

“Use old toothbrushes for cleaning taps, grouting, muddy shoes, bike chains … the list is almost endless”, and

“Remove stains from wooden chopping boards and cloths by mixing lemon juice with water, apply and rinse”.

A tip mentioning lemons received a surprise gift of a lemon, while the mention of flowers or bees won a packet of seeds or a toy bee.

17 June 2017 - Hanwell Carnival

It took place in Elthorne Park.

It was quite a good day at the carnival.

We collected £9.50, about half from Sheila's cards and the rest in donations.

Some interesting conversations and several people happy to know more about what EFoE is doing.
