Our Great Big Green Week has moved dates! To respect the period of mourning following the death of Queen Elizabeth II we have moved this years South West Herts Great Big Green Week to the 29 October – 6 November 2022. With the Green Watford Market taking place on the 6th November.

Through this event we are encouraging groups, individuals, businesses and schools to organise events across Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford as part of this national week celebrating community action.

The Great Big Green Week campaign aims to draw attention to climate change and destruction of the natural world, while also making a connection with these issues and actions locally in Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere. Through the week we want to promote as many local groups and activities as possible to get as many people involved in green actions as possible – the aim is to ensure there is something for everyone – and through doing so grow and strengthen the “greenness” of our area.

There is still time to get involved – and you can in a number of ways:

  1. Organise an event:
    • this can be something you or your group are already doing/ have planned or it could be something new developed especially for this week, and/ or
    • host a stall as part of the Green Watford Market takeover on Sunday 6th November.
  2. Let as many people as possible know about the Great Big Green Week in your business/ community group etc. to encourage others to organise events or get involved.
  3. Promote the Great Big Green Week itself – let’s get as many people as possible engaging in green events.

If you’d like to get involved or need any further information please contact us at – sustainableswherts@greenwatford.uk.
