Many thanks to all those who helped make the Gathering on 1st April a success - especially parishioners at St John Vianney church who are following the Live Simply programme (looking at living more sustainably and in solidarity with the poor). An excellent afternoon and a chance to exchange ideas and plot new campaigns.

One thing that came out of the meeting (suggested by Helen Steel) is that SH should write a letter to Thames Water expressing its concern about how food growers on allotments and in private gardens are being penalised by the hose pipe ban, whereas commercial water users such as car washes and golf courses are not.  I am in the process of drafting a letter - any comments welcome please.
