Everyone here at A Greener Festival would like to pass on their congratulations to our Press Officer Sam Hinde, and his beautiful new wife Helen. They got married today (Saturday 10th August) at Knipe Hall in the Lowther Valley in Cumbria. Like all of the team at AGF, Sam is a volunteer, helping out AGF in his spare time, and Sam’s ‘day’ job is working with Amanda Freeman at Freeman PR- whose clients include FatBoy Slim, DJ Yoda, Hercules & Love Affair, Ash, Emmy The Great and independent record labels association AIM, amongst many others, and Sam has worked on events including The Camden Crawl, War Child’s Brit Awards parties, The Eden Sessions, Noise Of Art and The Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. Helen is now a qualified teacher – and we wish them every happiness in their new life. It was a brilliant wedding and as an added bonus – one of the readings was the John Cooper Clark poem I wanna be yours! Top day!
And if the Lowther Valley sounds familiar – its where Kendal Calling took place two weekends ago – quite the place to be!
And our wedding present? We’ll be planting ten lovely trees in our Festival Wood in Dundreggan, Scotland, to celebrate Sam and Helen’s wedding!
