Tablet win at Treacle Fair

A Tadley resident was delighted to receive a tablet computer courtesy of AWE.

Tim Oliver, a systems analyst, won the tablet after entering a prize draw at Tadley Treacle Fair, May 31, where AWE had an information exhibition.

The AWE exhibition at the Tadley Treacle fair was an opportunity for the organisation to meet local residents, demonstrate our cutting-edge science and technology programmes and explain the exciting initiatives taking place with local schools and colleges. Approximately 350 local residents attending the AWE stand.

AWE event organiser, Michele Maidment said: “AWE is committed to being a good neighbour and working with the local community. The staff who attended this event really enjoyed meeting local residents and telling them about the great work we do at AWE.”

Tim who picked up his tablet prize this week, said: “I was pleasantly surprised by what I learned about AWE at the fair. I read about what AWE does with the local community in the magazine I get at home, Connect, but it was nice to learn even more at the fair. I like to hear about the community, schools and environmental work that AWE carries out. I think it’s really great that AWE attended the Tadley event; because this helps residents like me, know more about what AWE does.”

Following on from the success of the AWE Tadley Treacle Fair exhibition, AWE is hosting a community showcase event at the Burghfield Recreational Society, James Lane, Burghfield on June 27. This special one day event, organised by AWE, will provide the opportunity for local residents to learn more about its unique work. Residents will be able to speak to AWE experts about its cutting edge science and technology programme and its exciting initiatives with local schools and colleges. The event will also include hands-on experiments and interactive exhibits. To learn more about the AWE summer showcase, go to www.awe.co.uk
