2nd Beverley Green Fair (PRESS Release:- To All Media for Immediate Release)

22-04-2008 22:19

By popular demand, Beverley Green Fair is back! We will be holding our second Green Fair next Sunday 27 April 2008 at Longcroft School, Beverley.

Shan Oakes, one of the Green Fair organisers, said, “We held the first event in May last year and it was such a success that people said ‘you have to do it again’ so we had no choice! The partnership with Longcroft School worked extremely well. This time we’ve chosen an earlier date so that it’s well before school exams.

‘Green’ means ethical, and fair. ‘Green’ is also about sharing and participation. Our aim is to have a day which is fun, and which promotes local, social, cultural and economic diversity, make a showcase of sustainable living, encourage community spirit, and provide information and workshops on alternative life choices.”

All the favourites from last year have been invited, plus a recycling bonanza in the form of a Magnificent Car Boot Sale.
