General ramblings, Happy Stuff!

I won an award!

October 1, 2014

What a crap braggy blog title that is-sorry.
But I did.
Much to my complete surprise, I won the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust Volunteer of the Year award!

I did a lot of work last year with Emma Croft, who is the Trust’s Waste Minimisation Officer. With her help, I ran some Swishes, and Repair Cafes, and workshops (here, here and here).
I feel slightly fraudulent, as they were all things I really wanted to get going in my home town anyway, and I was super lucky to have the help and support of Emma and the Trust.

HUGE thanks to Emma, for all her help, and for humouring all my ideas! And also to the fabulously talented Verity, a local seamstress and dressmaker at Lace is More just outside Warminster, for all her brilliant help too πŸ™‚

    Well done Jen. Enthusiasm, effort, hard work and fun- all pay off in results. Great picture of you and Β£2 well spent !
    As said before, yours is the only Blogg I follow. Amazing developments over the year. Well done for that too.
    I work with Surrey Wildlife Trust. Great to have their support with my farm visits for children and my various wildlife and milling,baking projects.
