    Welcome to Buck the Trend’s February 2009 e-bulletin


    (1) Energy fair – please help publicise
    (2) Funding
    (3) Next BTT Forum
    (4) Homes for Good exhibition and 2 for 1 offer



    You may have seen the short piece in the community newsletter advertising our Energy Fair on Saturday 28th March. Please find a poster attached with this e-bulletin – it would be greatly appreciated if you could advertise the Fair by printing and displaying the poster in your house window / car window / wherever you think it will get seen. We’ve got great activities lined up for the day – now let’s get people to come and make the most of them!

    (2) FUNDING

    The Town Council has awarded Buck the Trend a grant of £162 towards room hire. This is fantastic news as it means we can actually afford to hold the Fair… Also, it’s a good vote of confidence for us to be awarded the funding we asked for, despite being such a new group.


    This will take place on Monday 20th April at 7.30pm. Please note the change of venue for this Forum – it will be held in the Town Hall instead of the Christian Community.

    (4) HOMES FOR GOOD EXHIBITION, 17 & 18 April, Exeter

    The Homes for Good exhibition showcases sustainable construction techniques and building materials, energy efficiency measures and renewable energy technology, as well as promoting realistic lifestyle techniques that help to reduce consumption, save energy and make sustainable living easy.
