Sponsors needed for Environment Week

Peterborough Environment Week
1-9 June 2002


Peterborough Environment Week (PEW) is a popular celebration of our local environment involving a range of activities and demonstrations aimed at the widest possible audience. Events ranging from walks and talks to fossil hunts, nature reserve open days and environmental art shows. One of the highlights is a festival in Cathedral Square.

This year PEW starts on June 1st, 2002 with a carnival moving through the City Centre and a free festival in Cathedral Square. This is a bank holiday weekend and a huge number of people are already directly involved, so we are anticipating a large audience.

The event is organised by Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT) who hope local businesses will benefit from the influx of people to the City Centre. Companies can also get involved with PEW activities giving them a distinct advantage showing a positive stance towards environmental issues. PECT are looking for businesses interested in supporting this important local event.

This is the 10th year PEW has been run and the 1st year that a carnival is to be included. The carnival is in celebration of the International Rio Conference on the Environment that began exactly 10 years ago. Making PEW 2002 the biggest and best to date. 

Maybe your company would be interested in demonstrating how it cares for the environment? The success and size of the event will be dependent on your physical and/or financial support. We already have some fantastic ideas in the pipeline, so now is a good time to get involved.

PEW can raise the profile of your organisation, do some good for the environment and could be a good chance for your employees to have some fun!

Any ideas, participation or donation would be very appreciated. In return, your event and/or contribution will be promoted through various advertisements and a widely distributed programme. There are lots of ways to promote your business using PEW events. 

Here are a few ideas:

  • Organise a staff event....
    a picnic to a nature reserve, 
    plant a tree, 
    give your company grounds a makeover 
    have a vegetarian or organic meal
    give everyone energy efficient light bulbs
    make a public display about your business & its environmental practices
    design a poster or wear a t-shirt about your company' practices
    enter into the carnival

Feel reassured that businesses that have participated/contributed in previous years have found the experience very rewarding. This year PEW organisers want to give opportunities to businesses that have not participated previously. This is based on the policy that the environment is not an issue for a few, but is everyone's resource. Your input will be warmly received and appreciated, so please get involved! Don't hesitate to contact Neil Turner at PECT, contact details below.
