What a 'Waste' of an evening!

What a 'Waste' of an evening! 
Report on DWI Meeting 'What do we do with Waste' 22nd Feb 2011

A cold 22 February 2011 saw some 25 interested supporters treated to 4 excellent talks on the subject of 'Waste'.

Graeme Lawes, from the East Kent Partnership (joint body formed by Dover, Thanet and Shepway Councils), started off the evening and brought us up to date on the proposed recycling and waste service due to begin in the autumn.

Daphne Tutton followed Graeme and emphasised the importance of not wasting food and told us about some of the dishes we could make with leftovers.

Ruth Searle from White Cliffs Freegle told us how the web site came into being, how to become a member, how to use it and the physical and mental benefits.

Geoff Warren gave us a very visual presentation about what can be done with furniture that had been scrapped but had been rescued and restored. Refreshments were then served and discussions continued for some time before the evening was brought to a close.

Thank you Vicki for organising and the report and Rose Dowd for the Photos
