Greener Living Fair

As well as carrying out a number of community litterpicks and awareness raising throughout the week, we will also be holding our first Greener Living Fair on Saturday 19 October, 1 - 3.30pm at Great Malvern Priory.  The fair will be a free information and activity event for our residents and we are looking for eco-friendly organisations and groups to join us to provide our residents with information on making simple and cost effective changes to help our home planet. We have stand space available and a couple of slots remaining for talks and demos. Please contact Claire Vaughan on 01684 862449 or email engagement@malvernhills.gov.uk to find out more.
