Greener Fram is an independent, voluntary, community group based in the small town of Framlingham in Suffolk. We aim to raise awareness of environmental issues, promote practical ways of reducing energy consumption, and champion the creation of a sustainable community.
To be held at the Unitarian Meeting House, Bridge Street, Framlingham starting at 9.30am.
Come and find out about our projects – the community garden, mend shed and free food shed.
We are also keen to recruit more volunteers to help at our Swap/Mend mornings (or we may not be able to continue them) and are also looking to elect a new Chair and Treasurer.
There will be an illustrated talk by Andy Black from Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm, the first Community Supported Agriculture farm in Suffolk ( www.the-oak-tree.co.uk)
Also – Fairtrade refreshments and cake! All welcome, we hope to see you there.
Swap & Mend this Saturday has been cancelled due to lack of voluntary staff. We have also decided to cancel the October Swap and Mend and just hold our AGM on that Saturday.
Swap and Mends has been running from April 2014. At present we run Swap and Mends on the second Saturday of each month. It takes a minimum of 6-8 volunteers to run a Swap and Mend. The volunteers transport stuff from storage to the venue, run the refreshments, help unload the cars/vans, set up the tables and be there to help our ‘customers’. Then at the end pack, sort and transport stuff back to storage. The team takes some sorted items for recycling at the end of each session.
We need a bigger pool of volunteers to enable Swap and Mends to continue in their present form. Please consider helping out.
Open meeting to look at Greener Fram future. Meeting to be held on Tuesday 10th September at the Unitarian Meeting House ( next to the library in Framingham ) at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome . Please come if you are at all interested in any of Greener Fram activities.
Next Swap and Mend on Saturday 14th September 9.30 to 1pm . Also at the Unitarian Meeting House. CANCELLED
