Last newsletter I was looking back on our 30th celebrations, this month I’m looking forward to 2 events we hope to organise. Firstly, Tamsin and Maud would like to invite you to a cleaning party at the Warehouse on Saturday 18th August. Although we try to keep on top of cleaning the public areas of the building, there are some places which could do with extra elbow grease and some TLC.  If you’d like to come and help Maud and I add some sparkle to the Warehouse then we will provide cake and copious amounts of tea and possibly even a game of hide and seek.
Secondly we’re hoping to run a a series of events over the August bank holiday to continue celebrating our 30th year and to give people an opportunity to learn more about Birmingham Friends of the Earth and the other organisations based here. More details to follow as things take shape!
In terms of missions I’m aiming to collect as many of our supporters email addresses as possible. This is not to bombard your inbox with rubbish but to keep you up to date with events such as the ones mentioned above and to save paper of course. Maureen, our lovely membership secretary may therefore contact you in the near future to ask if you’d be willing to share this information with us.
Lastly BFOE, the One Earth Shop, the Warehouse Café, Sprockets and some of our neighbours would like to invite you to sign a petition to improve the street lighting in the area as current provisions are rather poor. Please help us to create a safer and more welcoming environment by signing the petition when you visit the building.
