Basingstoke Green Week
Basingstoke Green Week is an annual event organised by local community groups, residents and supported by the Council.
The aim and vision for the week is to showcase all the good work going on in the borough, including local organic and environmentally friendly products and services. The activities during the week aim at finding new, fun and innovative ways of celebrating all things ‘green’.
