Last night The Green Register celebrated our 10th anniversary in Bristol. Having held two celebratory parties earlier in the year (one in Manchester and one in London) this one was the finale and we celebrated in style. Held at the fantastic Aardman studios (designed by TGR members Alec French architects) our guest speaker was Alastair Sawday, long term environmentalist and mover and shaker in the southwest. Alastair talked about the potential Bristol has and how we should grab this and run with it.
Tony Prescott and Stuart Briggs of Aardman did us proud with hearty wine and gorgeous food. Favourite dish: Cornish Mackerel, beetroot horseradish and Sharpham cheese rarebit with tomato chutney.
Thanks to Leadbitter for sponsoring the food and drinks-we could not have done it without you. The evening was rounded up by David Mellor, Director of Alec French introducing a 40 minute film documenting the extraordinary building of the Aardman studios-a really positive addition to Bristol.
Despite the gloomy outlook within the UK construction industry, TGR is looking forward to the next ten years of sustainable building!
A quote from a happy customer, Elke Dittrich, architect and TGR member:
‘Thank you for the fantastic evening. It was very inspirational with great surroundings and fantastic food. Well done you for your hard work and success with the Green Register. I hope this year will be better. It felt great being together with so many enthusiastic people who genuinely care for Bristol. We need to do more events like that. My dream is to bridge over the port way and make the gorge accessible and a real destination, rather something you peer down from the bridge. The Avon is so underused and unloved.’
