4th Strawberry Fair Green Team Meeting 5th Saturday 18.1.2020 2-4pm At the Coop Hut on Argyle Street

Attendees:

Ian Ralls, Sally McGivern, Greg Butler, Hilary Butler, Tim Neate

Items for Discussion

1.    Green Team becoming a Sub Committee of the Fair – discuss how to do this.

Action:

  • Ian or Greg to propose this at the next SF meeting

2.    Agree on area/s to focus on for 2020 :

Out main focus for the Fair this year will be reducing litter and waste.

Reducing Litter and Waste

Actions:

  • Think of litter as 3 categories – Cans, plastic and food waste.
  • Entrance on Maids Causeway outside of the fencing had overflowing bins and piles of cans and glass bottles on the Sunday after the fair – Ian to order 2 extra Wheelie bins to be placed there.
  • Ian to talk to Andy regarding sourcing colour coded bin covers with litter category written on for the oil drum bins.
  • Tim to ask Glastonbury Festival contact re same as these bin covers have been used at Glastonbury.
  • Sally to invite Becky who is volunteer Coordinator to next Green Team meeting regarding working with us to find 10-15 Litter Fairies (wings to be provided if we can find them) for the Green Team.
  • As well as other tasks, Litter Fairies will be asked to go round the trader’s pitches and support them to flat pack their cardboard boxes ready for recycling as it appears this was not done consistently by traders last year.
  • Sally to invite Caroline and Jules to next Green Team meeting to further discuss how the Green Team can support the traders Team and the Traders.
  • Litter Bins Signage - Ian to ask Richard if we can have Putlocks and scaffolding.
  • We could do with more litter drums – Ian to put out an amnesty recall.
  • Ian to mark on the site map where litter bin points will be.
  • Sofas
    We are trying to avoid use of sofas because we have no successful plan for them to be re-used after the fair - they usually get skipped after the fair and then go into landfill.
    Sofas for welfare and kids area only has been suggested but we will still need a re-use plan, and straw bales (covered with throws ?) for the other areas.
    The drawback with straw bales is that we still have the issue of what to do with them after the fair. They can’t be used for animals as they will be contaminated. To be further discussed at the Next Green Team meeting.
  • Sally to contact Jordana for an update regarding Art displays that can be used as single category litter recepticles.
  • Tim to talk to contacts who make the Marionettes for Scarecrow Corner.

Power Consumption

The council is providing Green Electricity to the crew compound.

Scarecrow Corner has a Solar Powered stage

No actions this year

Reusable Resources

  • Looking at using string to secure scrim – Ian and Hilary to trial a small area before the next meeting and report findings. Ian to be scrim coordinator. Hilary to source string if trial successful.

Compost Toilets

  • Chemical toilets have been ordered for the fair.
  • It could still be possible to trial a block of Compost toilets at Scarecrow corner and a block in the compound if the company we use can provide us with 2 compost toilet blocks – this is unlikely but worth a try – Tim & Ian to investigate. (If they are successful - we would also have to work out which budget this would come from.)

Recyclable resources including lanyards and wristbands

  • Greg to discuss initial thoughts with Annie B.
  • Finalising details of how the bars will operate the reusable cups system so that we can communicate this to volunteers and the public
  • Greg to contact Portland & Nicks Events Bars for an update.

Discussion Items to look at for 2021

  • Use of Bio-diesel
  • Solar Power for more areas of the Fair
  • Compost Toilets

Date of next meeting: Saturday 8th February 2-4pm

3rd Strawberry Fair Green Team Meeting Saturday 19th October 2019 2-4pm At the Coop Hut on Argyle Street

Minutes

Items Agreed:

Team to contact ‘Julie’s Bicycle’ :arranging an Eco Audit – this will aid us in identifying which key issues to focus on for SF2020

  • Litter Picking team can be offered a meal ticket or tickets as an incentive.

Discussed and Agreed Actions:

Power Consumption

Solar Power

  • We have a link from the Powerful Thinking Website to a Festival Fuel Tool which rates the fuel consumption of an event to industry benchmarks and will report the results at the next meeting.

  • The thinking is that we could use solar power in 2020 for Production and Buskers stage. Contact to be made with those in the know.

  • Batteries would need to be charged beforehand. Scarecrow Corner to advise us on any other tips we need to know from experiemce of running the solar powered stage in Scarecrow corner.

  • Before investing in solar panels we could consider borrowing or hiring them for 2020 – We will speak to Puffin to see if either of these options is feasible.

  • At the moment we have one solar powered stage in Scarecrow corner. The long term plan would be to increase solar power usage each year.

  • As a long term solution we will look into using a Solar Bus packed with batteries to power most of the Fair – as seen at Folk East Festival.

Cycle power – ongoing action

  • Can we introduce it? – would be great to involve the public.

  • Public workshops making windmills to demonstrate wind and solar power to engage families – IR & JL to develop

Reduce Use of Vehicles

In an impact assessment completed by the Judge Institute a few years ago they recorded a 50% spike in car park usage in Cambridge on Strawberry Fair Day.

A good solution (also used by Folk East) to reducing vehicles on site would be to organise band pickups and drop offs from Park & ride sites. But we would need volunteers to drive the shuttle bus we hire/borrow, communicate with bands and others needing a lift to the fair and coordinate the bus timetable.

Do we have anyone reading this who would like to take this on? 

  • Look into using local company for fencing - ongoing action

  • Costings to be discussed with infrastructure team for buying local (with skirts to discourage glass bottles being posted underneath?)

Reusable Resources

Cable ties & string

  • Trial attaching the artistic scrim to fencing with string in the crew compound.

  • Liase with infrastructure to look into price of ordering single use bio-degradable cable ties for 2020 for the whole site as a step in the right direction. These could be ordered in advance – does anyone have any contacts for us to buy these at cost?

Reusable pints and half pint pots – ongoing action

  • Exploring options with the Portland and Cambridge Event Bars

Options discussed:

  1. Bars provide their own reusable cups which can be returned for a deposit (As put in practice at the Cambridge Folk Festival.

  2. Strawberry Fair buy branded cups which are sold in the Merch tent then returned to exits for a deposit.

  3. A combination of the two.

Practicalities & costings to be discussed at Green team meetings

Attendees preferred option 1.

Reducing waste and litter

Bins – Ongoing Action

Looking into costings for bin covers with holes in to put in rubbish (with words/pictures denoting what goes in the bin.) Or possibility of making them?

We have 100 bins with 20 out in the community – We're chasing those via facebook.

Ongoing Action – look into where the bins are sited – do we need more in the food areas?

Ongoing Action - Educating the public: Developing ideas for structures next to exits where focus can be put on the left litter. First thoughts – a boatlike structure where used, empty cans can be put into and made into an art installation the following year ( washed & stored under the bridge) other thoughts – a can maize, a can trail)

Water provision

Water Points

  • This year we had two main water feeds with a third not working effectively (the one by the armadillo) Ideally we need 3 (or more but that would be down to the council) And ideally we need the water to be certified as drinking water by Wednesday so as to be ready when the traders start coming.

  • Water points need to be more visible – with scaffolding and prominent signage. To be discussed with infrastructure team.

  • GB has a contact number for Cambridge Water and will either pass contact to SM or contact them himself to ask about availability & costings for the beautiful Water Points that they provided to the Folk Festival. On their website CW state that they work with Water Aid so we would like to link in with that if possible.

  • Provide water in big containers for crew to reduce queues at water points? - SM is looking into Frank Water https://www.frankwater.com/ as an option. They are a Bristol based, registered charity and a Social Enterprise run by volunteers. They fund free water in India and Napal. Festivals that have booked them from 2010 to 2019 include Womad, Secret Garden Party, Shambala and Bestival. They take water from the water supply and chill it. There are 2 options – the fair pays for the chilled water to be supplied all day or the public pays for a £3.50 wristband which entitles them to refills all day – or they can buy a Franks Water branded water bottle from £4 to £22. I am getting prices from them next week – no commitment - just an option to look at.

Compost Toilets

Eco benefits - waterless, Chemical free, reduced truck movements & green house gas emissions (150 compost loos fits into same space as 26 portaloos), environmentally sustainable

Team has been in touch with Natural Event composting Systems whose tag line is – Changing the World from the Bottom Up http://www.naturalevent.com.au/

They have provided Compost toilets & urinals for festivals such as Bestival, Boomtown & Glastonbury.

  • The toilets come flat packed and are put together by their own people on site. They are a team of 4 and will need to stay in their own caravans. We will need to supply a telehandler forklift to get the stillage off the truck. The toilets are self-levelling.

  • They would do 3-4 cleans throughout the day. The waste is removed after the event. Looking at the info booklet we may need to provide empty water tanks if we have them on site for other waste water reasons such as traders or showers, but they can provide them if not.

  • Everything is provided – compost, soap & loo roll.

  • Cost dependent on configuration of toilets across the site - e.g. 100 toilets in a row needs 101 sides & 100 singles needs 200 sides.

  • Very keen to do a deal with us if we can promote them/encourage others to use them (first thoughts - free advert in programme, put on SF Website, mentions on Q105, Mike Wilson – anything you can do through your festival contacts?)

  • This is a link to their information booklet which explains how it all works - http://www.naturalevent.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/NE-Info-Sheet_small.pdf

Ongoing Action - Discussions to be had at the next meeting – price comparisons between portaloos & compost loos needed and the cost of providing compost loos for Scarecrow corner and the crew area to be researched.

They do not need to use drinking water to flush. They use no chemicals. They only use recycled paper. If urine cannot be stored or treated on site then they reduce by 90% volumes taken away by suck trucks.

  • Hiring toilets for the disabled - Natural events also provide toilets for the disabled

AOB

Ongoing Discussion Point - Raise the profile of the bins and raise funds for the fair by auctioning off the most artistic ones (or ones painted by Heron Heron) could be an option if we can purchase other bins to replace them.

East Anglian Festival founder drew our attention to: Powerful Thinking http://www.powerful-thinking.org.uk/about-us/ which is a think-do tank which brings together festivals, suppliers and environmental organisations to explore ways to reduce the costs and carbon through increased efficiency and alternatives, and share findings to promote lower carbon industry. It aims to provide clear guidance and resources to festival organisers about approaches to sustainable power and to drive a market for renewable energy supply at festivals, understanding and accounting for the business and cost restraints.

Links to Useful Powerful Thinking Fact Sheets: http://www.powerful-thinking.org.uk/resources/fact-sheets/

Ongoing Discussion Point - Suggested that we start measuring our progress on the following subjects: Energy, Waste, Water & Food Waste, travel.

Ongoing Discussion Point - Was suggested we think about the programme:

  • Put in info regarding what we have put in place eco – wise

  • Look into whether the programme is recyclable

Ongoing Discussion Point - Suggested we follow other festivals and look into using recyclable lanyards, pens and wristbands.

Ongoing Discussion Point – Looking into adding some eco friendly products to the Merch list – any ideas welcome. Will produce more of her washable straws which sold well last year.

Recruiting Litter heroes – Ideas:

  • Member of Green Team is stewarding on Fair Day next year and has offered to litter pick at the same time. This will send a good visible message to Fair Goers that we are serious and will hopefully prompt them to give up their litter.

  • Invite Chief Steward and Volunteer Co-ordinator for brain-storming session on Litter.

  • Previous Faerie will be running the Merch Tent again next year and will be organising a litter picking rota around the Merch tent area.

  • Invite Area Heads for brain-storming session on litter.

Date and venue for next meeting:

Saturday 9th November 2-4pm at the Hut in the Argyle Street Co-op

Items carried over to the next meeting:

  • Strategies for recruiting more Green Team Members

  • List in each area what is being done already and what people would like to see being implemented. (Ian to invite Area Heads)

  • Preparing the punters - social media strategy throughout the year

  • How to recruit Litter Hero

Ist Strawberry Fair Green Team Meeting 17th August 2019 - Minutes

Our inaugral meeting on the 17th August was a great success and we came up with the following ideas to get started on:

Power Consumption

  • Look into how more areas could be solar or wind powered. Scarecrow Corner already has solar powered stage and stage  lighting.
  • Reduce number of vehicles used by Areas.

Reusable Resources

  • Look into costings for using reusable cable ties for the whole site or a trial area.
  • Ban sale of single use plastic bottles and cups by traders.
  • Look into cost of SF  bars providing plastic pint & half pint cups (with SF Logo)  that can be bought then redeemed at site bars as seen successfully  used at the Cambridge  Folk Festival.
  • Traders already using paper plates and cups  and wooden cutlery as per contract  but SF kitchen used some single use items this year.

Reduce Waste and Litter

Bins:

  • These are emptied during the day.
  • More bins needed – we have about a 100 with 20 to come back.
  • Purchase bin covers with holes in and pictures or words indicating what should be put in them.

Litter Picking:

  • Encourage collective responsibility
  • Green Team to recruit Litter Hero’s to help the areas during the day and night in keeping the areas clean.

Water Provision:

  • Check that everyone participating is complying with the ‘no plastic disposables allowed on site’ requirement in the Management Control Document.
  • Can Water Aid or Cambridge Water can supply water stations?
  • Need a Plan of Action regarding signage for Water Stations.

Start setting the scene for Festival Goers to understand that we are making Green Issues a focus :

  • Put relevant posts and memes on SF Facebook pages during the year updating the pages on what we are putting in place.
  • Bullet Point signage at entrances (and possibly railway stations where there are a lot of people passing through on their way to the festival) stating expectations – wording to be decided at another meeting.
  • Suggest making the theme of next year’s fair something that reflects Green issues to help with setting the theme – SM to post on Strawberry Fairies FB Page asking for name ideas and the winning theme will be chosen at the next Green Team meeting and suggested at the Strawberry Fair meeting when the theme is decided on.
  • Look into setting up Art Installations that would demonstrate Litter reuse/disposal creatively. (whole team)

Other Suggestions:

  • Compost Toilets
  • Disabled Toilet/s with hoist to be discussed  at in the next Green Team meeting.

Fencing:

Look into hiring localy to cut down on transport carbon footprint.


Look into cost of hiring fencing with skirts compared to cost of 2 extra security guards to patrol the fencing in an attempt to reducethe  number of glass bottles that get rolled under the fencing we currently use.


Organisations to make contact with (for potential Litter Heros):

  • Friends of the Earth
  • Greenpeace
  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • Keep Britain Tidy

The group decided that we will meet monthly.

The date for the next meeting is Saturday 14th September – Venue to be confirmed – every-one welcome!
