Eco Fayre - Wirksworth

Sat, 02/10/2021

9am - 2pm   (Alongside the Farmers Market)

An Eco Fayre to show that everyone can do something, however small

Day-to-day actions for using less fossil fuel

  • switching to green alternatives in our houses for heating and generating electricity, and in our transport
  • how to make things last longer using the four R’s, Recycle, Repair, Re-use and Re-fill. 
  • grow some of your own food and even find it in the roadsides,
  • increase the dwindling biodiversity in our gardens, verges and countryside.

Chlldren will be catered for at The Maltings: making bug houses and boats. A locally-produced guide to the Energy Switch Initiative will be launched on how to change to a Green alternative energy supplier. Planet-friendly refreshments and recipes will be provided.

Stalls will be outside and in, around the heart of the town centre and The Maltings on St. Mary’s Gate. Nothing will be sold or bought but experience and ideas will be shared.
