Helen Tandy, Founding Director, Eco Communities
This has been 4 years in the planning. It’s involved talking to other schemes, looking for the right funding and cups! So it has taken is some time…
Then with rising prices since the project was costed for Spacehive, and problems with getting items from the EU we had to almost start again from scratch.
It was thanks to City to Sea who provided research they had completed that we were able to get back on track. We re-costed, decided on Circular & Co’s cup. Then we had to design a logo that would engrave, thanks to Craig for your graphic design support.
If we had not already had enough hurdles already, we were also the first batch of cups to be engraved in the UK, which of course had some extra technical hitches. However having postponed our launch they actually arrived on time… so at least we now have more time to calm from the stress and get you lovely people to join us on the 23rd May, New Chester Market at 7pm.
Great work from Circular & Co who kept us updated all the way… Adele from the Cheshire West and Chester, New Chester Market team who has been a huge support and is allowing us to launch the scheme in the Market.
Join the team from 7pm, New Chester Market, 23rd May… RSVP – see below email@example.com
