Here at The Brookfield Hotel we have decided to join people in boycotting Christmas crackers. We have been questioning why we provide crackers every year for festive lunches, Afternoon teas and Party nights. We all read out the joke and wear the paper hats for a short duration…And the "gifts"? They all get left on the table and thrown away when we clear the tables, along with the paper cracker tube and plastic toys. Straight into landfill. Everyday throughout the festive season we throw away approximately four black bin liners, that is an awful lot of landfill fodder.
So this year we will not be providing a cracker full of plastic tat. Instead we will have a photo prop station supplied with a few novelty items so you can have some fun. Why not then share your photos on our social media….Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. We hope you will all embrace our idea and will join us in reducing the 154,000,000 pieces of plastic rubbish that will end up in our landfill or seas from the UK alone
