Time to Vote!

Time to Vote!

Now I know we're all sick of voting, but this is an election you'll want to be part of. You may have gathered that one of the things we do is give away fruit trees. This is such a nice idea, as it gets trees in the ground, whilst giving people food right where they live. Food metres, not food miles!

Every year we like to pick at least one ward in BANES and get people from that area to register in advance for a free tree. And every year we like to put it to the vote, to ensure we're picking a ward where this is lots of demand for a free tree. Eventually, we would like to have done a giveaway in every BANES ward, so we are only accepting votes for wards where we haven't already done a giveaway (so that excludes Lansdown, Odd Down, Oldfield, Westmoreland and Weston!).

If you would like to vote for a location, please just name it! The best way to do this is via our Facebook and Twitter pages, otherwise just drop us a line. And spread the word - if you get your friends and neighbours to vote as well, you'll have a much better chance :-)

Voting closes on 31st December and we'll announce the winner in January.
