We partner and run various initiatives in our local community. If you are running a charity event in our area, and would like us to donate tickets, or food/drinks vouchers, or use our venue to hold a meeting or a fundraising event please get in touch. We might not be able to honour every request, and its important that it be local to us [ roughly speaking, within a 2k radius of Abbey St], but other than that, thats it . Please email us at [email protected] for all requests.
The idea is simple, we organise local business workers, and residents, who work or live on North Lotts Lane to meet up 1 afternoon a month to help clean & tidy Lotts Lane. We organise food and drinks after, and its just a good way to help make the beautiful cobbles of Lotts Lane shine, and maybe meet some like minded people, and who knows some new friends. After we get a few monthly sessions off the ground, in the summer we are hoping to organise a flea market/street feast style party on the lane for all the community, but thats subject to support from residents and the council.
Check out our team on our first Lotts Lane clean up!
Even the rain couldn’t stop us…
Our next cleanup is on Monday, May 13th at 3pm. Wanna get involved? Get in touch over here
What’s Greentonic you ask? It’s an extension of Bodytonic which focuses on all aspects of being green/reducing waste/energy efficient/environmentally friendly. We want to reduce our waste, remove single use plastic, be environmentally friendly and overall try to make the world (or our gaff for now) a better place. We got rid of plastic straws and single use plastic cups. We’ve got reusable plastic cups and metal straws for our events, which not only look the business but reduce our plastic waste. We’ve also banned takeaway coffee cups in the office – Keep Cups all round’ baby. We’re also learning day by day, getting things wrong, making mistakes, and trying to make things right. If you have any ideas or see us doing silly things we can easily improve on, please let us know, we’re open to learning and doing as much as we can – [email protected]
