MMM - I should think it would be 'just not cricket', if we did not have a chook there as our mascot!

There aren't too many ssish families that don't have or want the good old chook as part of their team....

You would be bound to make global news if you all rocked about on a pub crawl with chooks tucked under your arms! :mrgreen:

River Cottage still down at the moment.
perhaps we have all the same members and we just all give ourselves differnent names - there might only be about 6 people that go on all of them :wink:

Acl have got a link on the front of their site to drum up support and also asking for a field to be donated.

someone on downsizer asked for a date so I have said mid to late august for now , up to the person who donates the field.

howsabout doing a simply VAST tableau photo, or series of photos a la
"WI Calendar" - then make a calendar, flog copies of it off all the websites, and divvi up the cash between FOE and Greenpeace? 8)

ooh this is sooo exciting...

Martin.. nudey calendars... hmmm. You growing leeks this year then????

Andy you do have a point though... I post on all these forums... but my loyalty is definitely with SSISH!!!

Ummm FOE have their own forum.. so isn't it only fair to invite them too if we are raising funds for them??? I bet some of the ivillage green living people could be persuaded to join in too... or do we have enough now... could always suggest that they join in with the forum of their choice and persuade them that ISH is the place to be
