About the Event

Please RSVP to this event.

This month we're continuing a series of talks from local charities looking at reducing waste.  We've already had Janine from Sunray Recycling and Shanthini from the Community Fridge.

Tonight is the turn of Des Kay, who founded The Save The World Club in Kingston 35 years ago. The charity saves both items and foodstuffs from landfill or incineration and keep it all circulating through upcycling, redistribution and public art. The food gets donated to vulnerable populations and families.

Des himself has the distinction of having been at every Glastonbury Festival since they started.  He is the founder of the Glastonbury Festival Green Police team.  We originally invited him in June, but it clashed with his commitment to perform and work at Glastonbury.  

Health advice

If you are feeling ill and think you might be infectious, please consider others who may be more vulnerable and stay at home.  Thank you for your understanding.
