Green Market Success

Great news! In the regional round of the greenest market competition Darlington is the WINNER for the Northern region. Congratulations to them and especially to Darlington Foe member Wayne. Darlington now goes through to the national final later this month against Bristol and Nottingham, much bigger towns than us.

Get Real Recycling Event

Our Get Real Recycling Event was a great success. There were members of Darlington Borough Council, and various other interested representatives present. However the turn out of the councillors was a disappointment as this was an informative view about recycling in Darlington. Kendra made a fantastic presentation as did Beatrix about recycling in Breman, Germany. The evening proved to be very informative and inspirational. Darlington Borough Council really need to listen to their constituents, as when we had our recycling stall at the Market Spectacular in August the residents we spoke to wanted more items to be collected at the kerb side rather than a reduction.
The evening has paved the way for future contact between Darlington FoE and the Council which we will encourage.
