Steffi Gray, Community Liaison Officer for Brent Friends of the Earth says,
Our Green Fair will bring together local groups, businesses and individuals with an active interest in the environment, and show Brent residents that there are plenty of options for a low-carbon lifestyle in their area. We have over twenty stalls, activities for children, a series of short talks and demonstrations throughout the day, plus a platform discussion with local Councillors and a “Green Question Time” with our local MP. We hope it will encourage people of all ages to go greener.
The Green Fair is open to all. It is funded by the Brent Ward Working scheme. See www.brentfoe.com for more details.
