The Recycled Fashion Show

We have had an Environmental Awareness Day in the village today the highlight of which was 'The Recycled Fashion Show'. Well known members of the community were gently cajoled into showing off their recycled clothes on a catwalk - well actually down the centre of the Public Hall.

Using clothing obtained from a variety of charity shops, jumble sales, etc a number of situations were highlighted from walking the dog on the river path to going out on the town in the evening, from dressing for a hiking holiday to participating in a wedding. But it was Steve from the Post Office in fancy dress that really brought the house down.

This "fashion show" was something very different in the village, was well supported and thoroughly enjoyed. Ably compered by Phil and David it brightened up a somewhat grey day. Leslie and her volunteers are to be hugely congratulated for putting over a recycling message in such an entertaining way. Well done to all!
