Logo agreed

The meeting on Saturday was useful and a logo design was agreed upon for the campaign, which will go on the cotton bags that are intended for retailers to seel. They are also potentially going to be distributed to residents, depending on the council's decision on funding which is due in the next few days.

The logo could also be used to make window stickers, reminder notes for people to put on the fridge or front door, and whatever else we come up with.

The design is by local Sarah Dixon of Spider Creative.


  1. It's a great logo - I'm really looking forward to seeing it on the bags!

  2. have the council decided to distribute these bags free as yet?

  3. As far as I know this isn't going ahead but there are going to be bags available in the shops. There may still be a free distribution of bags but at the moment its not agreed and its unlikely we can now meet the 1st of July deadline. Watch the blog for more updates.
