Buckhurst Hill`s annual green festival is returning for it`s third year on Saturday 27 September 2008. Organised by the Buckhurst Hill town centre partnership and Epping Forest District Council, the festival is taking place in the upper car park on Queen`s Road and along the rest of Queen`s Road between 11am and 4pm.

This green family fun day is organised each year to bring the Buckhurst Hill community together and show people how they can live healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyles. Demonstrations, stalls and activities will be running throughout the day to show how saving energy can also save you money.

The Essex Energy Efficiency Advice Centre (EEAC) will be their demonstrating micro renewable solar hot water panels, etc and giving away free low energy light bulbs. The Leisure Gardens Association will be on hand providing advice on organic gardening, and Waitrose supermarket will provide tasty organic snacks for everyone to sample. West Essex PCT will be available to give advice on healthy living and the Council`s recycling advice trailer will be there to provide information on the waste and recycling service provided by the Council. A Honda hybrid car will be on display.

A highlight of the day will be a theatre play, about walking to school, called `What if it rains?` for children up to 12 years of age. A treasure hunt has been organised along Queen`s Road where they will be able to win prizes. A bouncy castle and face painters will also be there to make the day as much fun as possible. Some local shops will be running special promotions for the day to showcase the best of Buckhurst Hill.
