Redbridge Green Fair was arranged at Valentines Park on Sunday 29th May, 2016; the event was sponsored by Mont Rose College. The reason for Mont Rose College, organising the Redbridge Green Fair this year is to bring the community together and to promote the feeling of being greener. Also, it was a fantastic opportunity for a family day out as the weather was nice and warm. There were different types of food for the public to try, stalls to purchase souvenirs, jewellery, clothes, etc. It is an event full of inspiration and everyone enjoyed it. As being part of the event Mont Rose College also had a stall and also its students volunteered their services for the event which included marshalling, guiding public and manning the college stall.
One of our staff members had shared her experience and thoughts on the event.
“We had around 3000 cottons recycled Mont Rose College bags for the people who attended the event. On our stall we also had around 400 packets of different free vegetables and flower seeds to give away as an environmental benefit. People who came to our stall had the chance to choose from the seeds which they’d liked and also inquired about the college.
Our volunteers were divided in different time slots so we had enough throughout the day. Some were helping the organisers of the event and others did some brand awareness by approaching people and enlightening about the college. Our volunteers were highly enthusiastic about their tasks and encouraged others to join the college. Many people who attended the event showed interest in the courses we offer by providing their contact details for further information. Though it was bit windy, we had a great time and the best part was that, almost everyone who attended event walked away with Mont Rose College bags.”
