On Friday, I spent the morning delivering posters and leaflets around various venues around Clackmannanshire: Post Offices, Co-op stores, libraries, civic centres, the Alloa campus of Forth Valley College. I am leading the Fairtrade Steering Group in Clacks, attempting to get Fairtrade status for the county by the middle of next year. Our first event is an African Kitchen event on St. Andrew's Day, 30th November. Although we havn't advertised it yet, there are something like 20 places booked already. We have set a capacity of 50 but could stretch that to 55 or so, should we need to.
In the evening, I took Kirsty to the opening and launch event at Showcase Glass in Stirling, a glass artist who also showcased other people's work. Have signed Kirsty up for a free taster session where she gets to make her own hanging ‘Christmas Tree’ decoration and have some interesting and enjoyable glass fun! See www.showcaseglass.co.uk.
