Gearing up to go green - Malvern EnviroWeek returns from tomorrow

MALVERN will be gearing up to go green from Monday, October 14, when its second annual EnviroWeek returns.

The event runs until next Sunday and will include the first ever Greener Living Fair from 1pm to 3.30pm on Saturday, October 19, in Great Malvern Priory.

There will also be free demonstrations, talks and stalls offering advice and information on how to be kinder to the planet.

A free one hour Rag Rug Making Workshop will teach people the basic techniques involved with making a vibrant rag rug out of unwanted clothes.

The workshop, by Malvern Country Market, will be at 1.15pm on Saturday when there will also be Malvern’s Marvellous Trees tour from 1.30pm to 2.30pm.

Community litterpicks will take place during the week with equipment available to borrow from Malvern Hills District Council.

And the popular EnviroWeek Photo Competition has returned with residents being urged to share their best photos of the district.

The top ten photographs will be framed and exhibited in Great Malvern Priory for three weeks in November and December.

To submit photographs, post them on social media before the November 4 deadline and tag Malvern Hills District Council with the hashtag #MalvernEnviroWeek2019.

Places on the Rag Rug Making Workshop can be booked at Malvern Tourist Information Centre on Church Street, next to Lyttelton Well, which is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

It is a maximum of two places per person and a cash deposit of £5 per person is needed.

The workshop is suitable for all ages but those under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Email engagement@malvernhills.gov.uk to get involved in, or to organise, a community litterpick.

Equipment can be loaned to any groups or organisations which have public liability cover.
