Chief Commissioner Blog

Hi everyone,

In April, we see many celebration days, with the Easter break from school, Bank holidays, Easter itself and more.

I want to focus on Earth Day. Earth Day is an annual event on 22 April to demonstrate support forĀ environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970 – it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally in more than 193 countries.

 

Girlguiding have this really beautiful badge, to get us all talking and thinking about what we can do to protect our planet. This topic is something I know a lot of our members feel very passionate about.

At our Region office and at our Hautbois activity centre, we have been thinking about how we can be become more sustainable, reduce our environmental impact, and reduce our carbon footprint. Have you ordered from our online shop recently? Did you notice we are using less new packaging, and paper tape! At our recent trustee weekend Fiona, our Hautbois and Estate Manager, presented to us a thought-provoking presentation regarding how we can achieve some of our goals and I know she too, feels very passionate about us achieving these. Do you have any expertise in this area? If you do, please get in touch as we are setting up a task and finish group to scope ideas and put plans in action.

As always take care, keep smiling,

Tracy
