There may have been rioters intent on destroying our beautiful London buildings on Saturday, but all was peaceful and very green at Olympia at the UK AWARE SHOW. Although a relatively small event, every stand had something interesting to demonstrate and inform visitors. I was keen to listen to Piper Terrett (my friend from home town Billericay pic of them at the top)part of the team on the rostrum giving their opinions on health, veganism, finance, saving energy (and the planet) and much more. There was a great fashion show, and a chance to learn how to 'swish' with Victoria and Sandra. Swishing is a fabulous clothes exchange idea to gain an exciting new wardrobe while raising money for your favourite charity. Contact Victoria and Sandra at

Simply loved Rudi Schogger's new electric folding bikes launched at the show. The hottest two-wheeled TP Scoot was available for test drives - everyone had a go! They can be seen at The Gadget Show Live from 12 April in London. This nifty, folding, cleverly crafted piece of engineering can save so much money. It has a range of up to 20 miles and a top speed of 20mph. It does require insurance, tax (zero rated) and either a pre-2001 drivers licence or a CBT. Electric Scooter Shop are taking the TP Scoot on a roadshow across the UK through spring/summer.I can see this being of huge interest in the future. For detail contact Rudi at
