DraughtBusters
Tue 21 June 2022

DraughtBusters 

Hello everyone, I am leading the Reading DraughtBusters project, which has been running successfully for the past 8 years or so. We even managed to sort out some of the more urgent cases during the Covid lockdown period. Perhaps more exciting still, is that we now are helping to set up new draughtbusting groups in the wider region, two of which are now fully operational, with another half a dozen being created, including one on the Isle of Wight!

We have had one recent enquiry about setting up another group in Reading, but with soaring energy prices, I suspect that from September onwards, calls for our services will go ballistic. We are therefore looking to set up groups across the town in an effort to meet the expected demand. 

Would you like to be involved with actual hands-on DraughtBusting, or with coordination, organising or communications activities?

If so, please get in touch, as your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The time commitment is likely to be less than half a day a week, although a few additional meetings might be necessary during the set-up phase. 

Tony - one of Reading'd dreamers
