October update

Not 3 coins in the fountain but BOA’s 3 fountains and bottle refill stations in Sladesbrook, Culver Close and St Margaret’s Car Park are all now working. Thanks to BOA Town Council for working with CFB on this project.

Oct 5th was No Disposable Cup Day. Rebecca Ridd organised posters and asked local cafes not to give out single use coffee cups. This is a fairly new “Day”. Hopefully it made some impact on coffee drinkers and will grow bigger next year.

On Saturday November 2nd from 10 -12 we are holding a REPAIR CAFÉ in the Hub on Church St. There will be experts on hand to do sewing, general household, bicycle and tool repairs. Bring in those items that need a little TLC rather than putting them into landfill! Come and see what a Repair Café is all about. Coffee and cake available. Read full details here.    Maureen Wood
