Delivery Team Officers plan exciting engagement for 2024.
Delivery Team Officers from the Highland Community Waste Partnership (HCWP) came together on Wednesday 8 November at the Voluntary Action Lochaber building, An Drochaid where Lochaber Environmental Group (LEG) are based. It was an opportunity for the delivery team to get together and work on joint projects as well as having a catch up on progress across the partners.
As well as joining in the online Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) coffee morning, which had a break out session on community composting, the team had a chance to discuss a number of projects that are in progress.
The team then took the time to visit the West Highland Museum, where the Highland Community Waste Partnership have an opportunity to develop a Conscious Consumption exhibition within their exhibition space (pictured). The concept is that the exhibition resources can then ‘travel’ between the partners and be exhibited across the Highlands. Each of the three display walls can be dedicated to one of our three main themes (Food Waste & Composting, Share & Repair and Single Use Packaging).
The team then had lunch at the Vintage Café which is run by service users at the Montrose Centre. This is a twice weekly pop-up café in the New Connections Building where LEG, The Workshop Studios and the Fort William Men’s Shed have recently run their pilot Fort William Repair Café.
Back in the office after lunch and they had a general catch up followed by planning for the museum display.
Lesley Hawkins, HCWP Project Officer for LEG, said: "Today was a great chance to meet with other Delivery Team Officers to evaluate previous waste reduction events and initiatives and plan more exciting engagement for 2024. We're all already looking forward to the next in-person meet-up."
