Celebrating Volunteering

Tomorrow (Wednesday 30th March), Bright Ideas is joining with ACAF and 97.5 Kemet FM to celebrate our fantastic volunteers.

It is going to be an action-packed day, with volunteers showing us what they have been up to and displaying talents.  We will also be joined by the Helen and her team who are researching the history of the Hyson Green Flats, Ciaran Norris from Parliamentary Outreach and Steff Webber, the Community Programme Co-Ordinator from Nottingham City Council.

This is an invitation only event, however it is going to be broadcast live on 97.5 Kemet FM, so tune in and be part of the day!  The event starts at 10:30, with 97.5 Kemet FM broadcasting from the event until 1:00.

The eNerGy Doctor operates



Having had several new faces join Bright Ideas over the last few months, a well-deserved tidy and reorganising of the offices is underway.  A new office for eNerGy squad and Champions of Change now have their own space, waiting for some desks and a lick of paint.  We all eagerly await….

eNerGy squad had a fantastic day out at the Arboretum green festival; hot hot sun, music and masses of people made for a great time. We managed to talk to lots of people about saving money by saving energy, and the eNerGy doctor put in a special appearance to operate on some lemons.

Arboretum Green Festival

eNerGy squad will be at the Arboretum Green festival this Sunday (23rd May) from 12-6, bringing you a whole host of information and activities.  Pop along and learn about energy efficiency, or talk to volunteers and facilitators about how to get involved with eNerGy squad.

The eNerGy Doctor is rumoured to be making an appearance; some say the life of a lemon hangs in the balance and only he can save it.

The Green Festival is an annual event with live music, food and a whole host of stalls run by different organisations committed to seeing Nottingham become a greener place.  The met office promise that the sun will shine, it promises to be a great day.
