GLADSTONBURY  FESTIVAL  STALL  30 JUNE 12– 7pm– Viv has applied for a stall under FOE at a cost of £24.00. We will share with two other groups. Viv will look into whether we can apply for a second table. (Update second table ok, so our share is £10) Marjory suggested “Guess How Many Bayleaves Are in A Jar”  which would generate discussion about food waste/fruit harvesting etc  and supplement our mailing list. We agreed to provide a prize of around £15.00. Viv may also have access to books which could be used as a prize. Urmi  will check if she can provide a gazebo in case weather is poor.
