GREENING FLEET

 

In September 2023 Fleet Town Council launched an exciting new project within Fleet called The Greening Campaign.     

           

Put simply, the campaign aims to encourage and support local people and businesses to take easy and straightforward steps to reduce energy consumption and waste and tackle the immediate global challenges at a community level. The Greening Campaign are already working with other communities right across Hampshire.

                 

To kick off the campaign, on the 4th September we held a public meeting at The Harlington where Terena Plowright, Founder of The Greening Campaign explained the campaign, its aims and how you can get involved.

Challenge Cards

At the public meeting attendees were asked to vote which practical challenges should be included on Challenge Cards, the aim of which is to encourage people to take steps to reduce, reuse or make a difference. These Challenge Cards were delivered with out newsletter. 

Households that can commit to 3/5 of these actions can proudly display them in their (street facing) windows. We'll be coming round to count them between 14th - 19th April and will then feedback on the community's efforts!
