Sunday, 11 September 2016 was Swindon’s 2nd Eco Fest held at Eascott. It was a great success with lots of fun-filled activities and stalls that the community people will get to learn and enjoy. There are also musicians that are entertaining the Eco Fest visitors.
The event’s theme was about home energy conservation, renewables and recycling. There was also a corner about community wildlife and about gardens.
Eco Fest gets Eascott buzzing with green energy
RENEWABLES and recycling was the theme in Eastcott on Sunday as the second Swindon Eco Fest burst into life.
With a busy programme of speakers, stalls offering activities and even an artists’ corner, the event, held at the Savernake Street Social Hall, was a roaring success.
After a promising debut outing last year, the Eastcott Community Organisation joined forces with the Swindon Climate Action Network to put on an even bigger day for 2016.
Simon Smith, from the Climate Action Network, said: “We’ve taken over the whole site. In the side hall we’ve got a programme of speakers running all day – everything from community wildlife, to gardens, to home energy conservation.
