LOCAL BUSINESS LIST
Kate has put together a list of local businesses
that are open in level 2 and who would be very glad of the custom if you are in need of goods or services. We are hoping this encourages everyone to spend their money as locally as possible and to keep the money circulating round our local area as much as possible.
ANOTHER YEAR GONE AND AN INTERESTING ONE COMING
Thanks to all those who attended our AGM on Monday 25th May.
It is always good to look back over the previous year, say a lot of thank yous to all the people who contribute to the Halswell Community Project’s work. This year, of course, we are also thinking about the likely implications of the Covid 19 economic downturn both on us and on the wider community. As yet, these things are not clear and are unlikely to be for a wee while, however there is likely to quite a bit of adapting to do for many of us.
Our guest speaker at the Halswell community Project AGM was Anthea Madill who runs Remix Plastics and who is a proponent of low waste living.
Amongst other things, she teaches workshops to help others think about their waste and runs a business making useful and beautiful stuff out of plastics that are not recycled in your yellow bin. A pair of her earrings were recently spotted on our Prime minister!
Anthea gave us an outline of the ways which she manages to have a low waste lifestyle, the way it benefits her family through lower costs, and the ways that she keeps herself and her family on track. Much of this information is also available on her website
