Great response to Halton Eco-Fair
250 people from all over the area enjoyed the Eco-Fair held on Saturday March 26th in The Centre@ Halton, the latest in the Centre’s successful programme of events.
Stationed outside the Centre was a truck containing an inter-active exhibition on climate change, whilst inside there were talks on Home Energy Service and Lancaster co-housing. In the main hall 20 stalls were offering everything from eco-friendly cleaning products, apple trees and goose eggs to advice on solar panels or loft insulation and information about the hydro project and Halton First Responders.
Wonderful music from a group of talented folk musicians enhanced the ambience of the event and the provision of a Children’s Corner by Halton Nursery allowed younger visitors to enjoy face painting and a range of games and activities in sight of their parents discussing the finer points of energy conservation.
The W.I. stall was well stocked with cakes and buns but it was the first stall to sell out. Homemade soup and bread rolls were also on sale from Borwick Caterers. The Centre coffee shop, too, did a roaring trade. Organisers were delighted with the event which served to launch Halton Carbon Positive and to mark one step on the road towards the village of Halton reducing its collective carbon footprint.
Thanks go to all who helped support this event in whatever way. The Centre’s next major event is the Nearly New Sale on Saturday May 7t from 10am to 12noon – contact Maureen Richardson on tel: (01524) 811854 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
