Church fair goes green By JIMMY NESS St Margaret's is turning over a new leaf this month at its forthcoming green fair. The annual fair starts at 10am on October 29 and has a new environmentally friendly theme. There will be dozens of stalls with baking, craft, secondhand items and more for sale. Church member Lynne O'Brien says they have a range of additions including signs to promote fair trade items, and sugar compos- table plates for people who provide baking. There is now a compost bin in the kitchen so that ladies don't have to go outside and members of the gardening stall have been mak- ing seaweed mix for sale on the day. Our fabulous Christmas stall has run with the theme and has been making all things green and New Zealand-themed, whilst the raffle basket this year is to be filled with items that are eco-friendly or made locally.'' Stallholders will also be wearing fancy dress and Maidstone Countdown has donated biodegradable bags. St Margaret's recently finished meetings on sustainability, which were based on council workshops. The council offered us the material to tweak to fit our context, with the idea that we run the free events for ourselves and at the end provide feedback as to how it worked for us,'' Ms O'Brien says. Participants were encouraged to set goals at home and we slowly made significant changes on church grounds.'' They now use locally made or environment- ally friendly cleaning products, have planted a vegetable garden and raised enough money to provide five cows for a community in need.
