Random Café in Garston held a celebration in aid of Great Big Green Day, the UK’s largest celebration of community action tackling climate change, on Saturday, June 17.
Activities included awareness stalls, competitions, raffles, a tombola, and craft workshops such as making collage butterflies. Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) offered bike registrations to visitors – a way of marking bikes to deter thefts. All guests also enjoyed cakes, drinks, and ice creams.
Among those attending the event were local PCSOs, Watford Community Housing Trust, Watford Recycling Arts Project, and the Meriden Residents’ Association. Watford’s Green Grandma and Watford & Three Rivers Trust Friends of the Earth also joined the fun by sharing environmentally friendly waste-saving tips.
A spokesperson for Random Café said: “This was the first time we held this event and will be doing it annually. As a waste food organisation, we loved being able to highlight the gardens and share waste-saving tips with our local community.
“It means a lot to us to have community support and be able to share the garden with others, especially those who don’t have a garden or outside space.”
