Ashington Town Councillors and Officers were at the Ashington Tuesday market yesterday, as part of the Great Big Green Week Campaign.
We invited other organisations to join us and we are pleased to say we had representatives from Northumberland County Council Climate Change Team, Groundwork NE & Cumbria, Citizens Advice Northumberland and Climate Action Wansbeck.
This September, people across the country will come together to take positive action with their communities; hosting events and activities to inspire others to step up for climate, nature and people, and call on decision makers to create a safer, greener future.
Ashington Town Council had a free raffle, which was open to all to win a water butt, which was donated by Northumbrian Water, a slow cooker and an air fryer. All very useful items to be used to conserve energy and resources.
The lucky winner of the air fryer was Carol with the blue ticket, 256-260.
The winner of the water butt was Lindsey with Pink ticket, 26-30
The winner of the slow cooker was Brenda with Yellow ticket. 26-30
