for Eco-Dating as your favourite British event.

Eco-dating is back and this time it‚s bigger and better than ever! BTCV York are running the summer Eco-dating event ˆ speed-dating with a difference ˆ for anyone who wants to meet like-minded environmental people.

The world‚s first Eco-dating hedge planting event held over Valentines weekend was a great success and at least one couple (and the trees) are still going strong!

The second Eco-Dating event is to take place along part of York‚s cycle path network improving its habitat corridors over the weekend of 26th and 27th July 2008.

The event is aimed at local single people; there will be four separate events based on different age brackets spread over the whole weekend. Participants have a short introduction on how to use the tools and equipment for the environmental project and will then be divided up into pairs. They will then have ten minutes with each other giving them enough time to chat to their date whilst helping the environment. After ten minutes a bell rings they will move on to meet another date.

Saturday 26th July - 10.00am ˆ12.30am (50-65+ yrs old) Saturday 26th July - 2pm-4.30pm (20-30 yrs old) Sunday 27th July - 10.00am ˆ12.30am (40-50 yrs old) Sunday 27th July - 2pm-4.30pm (30-40 yrs old).

A ten-pound booking fee will be contributed to the charity BTCV; places fill up quickly so book now to avoid being disappointed. Call us on 01904 644300 or contact us at
