If you're regular – and I hope there's a few of you – you'll know that we've been working on the Greens Stories project for Affinity Sutton since October last year. We are really, really pleased to say that the final part of the project - the films – are in the can and on YouTube. You can vote for your favourite on the Affinity Sutton website.
Of course we're totally impartial and without sounding like a swarmy game show host, all the competition winners were top folk and dead lovely to work with.
The films feature pensioners with attitude Jeannie & Eddie and their Guerrilla Vegetable Gardening, Phil the Power Saver telling us how we too could have Smarter Energy Use, Christine, Ian & Tom with their ambitious yet eco-friendly Community Growing Gardening Project in Stoke, Rob who has been patiently creating his very own Open source Carbon Calculator and Brian, Steph & Tony who took matters into their own hands to create a Recycling Revolution in Middlesbrough.
On July 20th Affinity Sutton will be screening the films and announcing the final winner of the competition. The prize is a weeks holiday at the Eden Project.
They were all an inspiring bunch who are the real faces of everyday activism. People creating changes in their lives and their communities; it's heart warming stuff y'know.
