The young people are completing four weeks of activities, learning and community work with a Family Fun Day at the park on Wednesday August 21 between 11am and 3pm.
There will be a number of activities aimed at all ages including Petting Zoo, Sports, Raffle, Heart Start, Bake Sale, Henna and local Police. It will be an ideal spot for a family picnic and parents are advised to carry suntan lotion as an afternoon of sun is forecast.

Plastic Free Picnic (Rectory Field)
The picnic is a challenge to you – can you make a “single use plastic free picnic” to bring and eat in delightful surroundings in the company of like-minded folk who care about the environment?  So no cling film, no non bio degradable crisp bags, single use plastic bags, no single use pots etc. etc.
We hope to have a special display by Veolia our local waste management operator, other displays about the scourge of single use plastic, some recycling challenges and some games for all ages.
We invite you to bring along your ideas on how to live a more sustainable life without plastic…. Perhaps bamboo mugs and plates, toothpaste but not in a plastic tube, bamboo tooth brushes with natural bristles, examples of refillable products, a Guppy Bag (do you know that this is?) Bring these ideas along to share with others.

We are organising this to help the community become more aware that there are alternatives to single use plastic.
Do you know which local shops are increasingly selling produce without plastic….. do you know the nearest source of toilet cleaner, hair shampoo, conditioner, washing up liquid etc. etc.  in refillable bottles. Where you can buy  pasta, bombay mix, coffee beans, curry powder, nails in assorted sizes, bacon and lamb chops without plastic. We will have the information at the picnic. Do you know which of our local shops only use paper bags, offer recycling facilities for cast off shoes, use compostable takeaway cutlery? The list is surprising long and there will be an opportunity for you to add to the information we have gathered.

Time: 12:00pm - 3:00pm
