Burnham and Weston Energy CIC Share the Sunshine at EAT Weston
Last Saturday 7th April, CfR attended the EAT Weston food festival on behalf of Burnham and Weston Energy CIC to raise awareness in the local area about the new community energy company’s activities. The event was highly successful despite morning showers, and we were glad to see how interested local people of Weston-Super-Mare were in the initiatives form Burnham and Weston Energy CIC, including the solar bond offer launching soon, Share the Sunshine community fund and Autumn’s upcoming fuel poverty support service. The badges (created by local designer Barnaby at CuckooO Design) proved extremely popular with children, and we would especially like to thank Joel for his kind gesture getting stuck in and helping hand out the badges.
We really enjoyed being at the festival and engaging with so many local businesses and charities, and especially appreciated the support of the young event officers as they were very polite and quick to help us move back our gazebo which caught the wind and went on a brief trip over the wall! We would also like to thank the organisers Bev and Sarah Milner Simmonds for their hard work ensuring that the event ran smoothly and publicising attendees, and we look forward to attending the next EAT Festival at Burnham-on-Sea in May.
