I feel very strongly that we should get rid of single use plastic and we can all do our bit to help!
So we are! In an experiment starting on Sunday, instead of single use plastic cups, you can collect a rather lovely re-usable plastic tumbler, mark or decorate it with the pens provided and then drink from that instead!
We would encourage you to take it home, wash it and bring it with you next time – but if that’s just a bit too much like hard work, leave it to be collected and they will see that it is washed up – those marking come off – and brought next time!
Alexandra Wood returns once again to Tango on the Thames – this time, with the popular dancer and teacher, Hernán Brusa!
Alexandra contributed (with Vincent Simone) to Debbie Magee’s memorable Argentine Tango on last year’s “Strictly…”, which Debbie chose as her favourite in the final. In all, Alexandra says she “got to work with 4 fabulous couples and it was an incredible experience! Well done to all of them!”
