A date for your diaries! On the 17th July at our HGN Gathering will be inviting you to help us map food security and food poverty in Herefordshire.
The event will be led by Peter Norton and Mary Burton from Brightspace Foundation, with input from the wonderful Wellbeing Cafe – a new project making use of food waste in Hereford city to feed school age children during the ‘Hungry Holiday” gap.
More information to follow very soon.. but in the meantime check that you can join us at 7.30pm on Wednesday 17th July at Left Bank Village.
Why not celebrate Plastic Free July by combining a walk in the beautiful woods at Queenswood with browsing our growing range of plastic free products and new books on how to reduce your plastic footprint?
If you are switching away from single use plastic water bottles, we have some lovely bottles for sale in the shop or you can bring your own bottle to fill up at our drinking fountain.
Come along and join us for our HGN Members Meeting on Wednesday 19th June, 5.30 – 7pm in Gwynne House, Left Bank Village, Hereford.
All are welcome to come along – and our ‘Round Table’ time provides an opportunity for all of those present to update us briefly about their current projects and concerns.
The meeting will also be a chance to discuss HGN’s developing plans to support local Councillors in our Great Collaboration towards a Zero Carbon Herefordshire. More information on that project can be found by clicking here.
And for those of you who love Spring Greens – come along to contribute to discussions about the next steps for this gorgeous Herefordshire green festival.
We start promptly at 5.30 and finish at 7pm. For those who would like to there is half an hour after the meeting to have a drink with colleagues before joining the De Koffie Pot Discussion evening – this week on Proportional Representation. More information here.
It is with much sadness that I prepare to leave my role of Administrator of HGN today. I feel so lucky to have had this time with such a wonderful organisation, a small but mighty force in this beautiful county. I am handing over the reigns to my successor, Kate Bull, who will be writing her own introduction when she takes over on the week of the 17th of June. The new Administrator will be at the Members’ Meeting on the 19th of June, so please come along to meet her.
Please be mindful that this means that there will be a week where HGN will have no administrator at all, so please be patient if you need to get in touch with us or need something done.
I’m so happy and grateful to be succeeded by someone so capable, who will no doubt hit the ground running!
I look forward to continuing to be part of HGN as a member of the Steering Group and joining all the members as we continue in our fight for this county and it’s future.
All that’s left to be said is, have a lovely weekend and see you all at future HGN events!
Please come along to Gwynne House (to the left as you enter De Koffie Pot) for another Members’ Meeting, from 5.30pm (expected to finish at 7pm). Here we will talk about our plans for the year ahead, including the Great Collaboration.
