The Environment Centre is going to have an open day, and displays in the centre, and incentives for people to walk up the stairs. Would be good if groups can put something together about their activities – preferably laminated and with Velcro hooks on the back, or on your own stands. Please let Katherine know if you are interested in doing something.
Also please let me know if your group is going to do an activity for WED – so start thinking about it now – could be things like lunchtime walks, bikerides, movie showing, etc
