February Meeting

Our first meeting of 2020 was our AGM.  Our chairman reported another successful year and the business part of the meeting was speedily covered.

This was followed by our speaker for the evening Sue Drage.  I think that had we been able to visit her recycling bin at home there would have been little to see!

Sue detailed numerous ingenious ways of using and re-using everyday discarded items to avoid them going into land fill.  From knitting with strips of plastic from carrier bags, making multi-use bags from crisp packets to using flattened metal cans and ring-pulls for jewellery Sue had brought them all to show and explain. (and surprise us all!)

Clearly Sue was passionate about using and re-using our planet's resources to the full.
