LEAF's Fun Open Day for the whole Family - Saturday 9th April
Download page

We hope that you have been enjoying the event at Langford Lake. On this page you will be able to download some of the documents on display at the event. 


So... what's happening! 

'Being greener' was an Open Day aimed at people just starting to learn about how to live a more sustainable life and who want a simple guide. The talks are all by members of LEAF, the Local Environment Action Friends, who are ordinary people with day jobs. They do not pretend to be experts but are sharing what they have learned from their experience.
