At the meeting last night we talked about our group nomination for a 'Friends of the Earth Earthmovers' award which is a very prestigious award to get. The awards will be presented at the conference in Loughborough at the weekend where we have representatives from the group attending. We have all got our fingers crossed. A photographer from the Northern Echo took a picture of the group to highlight the fact that we have a nomination and to raise our profile in readiness for our recycling campaign. We were joined by three new members and have now got a link on our blog to Darlington Cycle campaign. The stalls that we had at the market spectacular in August were very successful, with over 300 letters getting sent out to councillors about the changes to Darlington Borough Council kerbside recycling scheme.
