Everything is in place for the fourth annual Green Fayre. The bigger and better event takes place on Saturday 30 September from 10am – 4pm. There will be something for everyone at the fayre organised by Congleton Town Council and Congleton Partnership. The closed High Street will showcase more than 30 local groups, organisations and businesses who are carrying out projects to help protect nature and our environment.
Councillors and staff at Congleton Town Council are getting prepared for the big day by making sure they know they know their A-Z of green words! An electronic copy of a Green Glossary containing 84 terms used when discussing environmental matters has been developed by the Green Working Group for those working at the Town Hall. The glossary is available to all on the Green Living pages at: www.congleton-tc.gov.uk. Check out that you know your grey water from your black, blue and green water, your carbon footprint, carbon offsetting and carbon emissions and the difference between Carbon Neutral and Net Zero.
Have a hug with the ‘Hedgemen’ who will make 30-minute appearances at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. Be entertained and join in with circus skills – with no electric gadgets! Discover more about electric cars and electric bikes. Inside the Town Hall find the Congleton Repair Café, a book swap and The Big Clothes Movement, fill a bag with pre-loved clothes for just £2. The popular Makers Market will be in town, with an abundance of artisan producers in the pedestrian area. Congleton Lions will be collecting some of the hard-to-recycle products on their stall and North West Ambulance Service will be joining them to carry out free heart defibrillator awareness sessions.”
