Put The Kettle On

July 25th, 2012

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one among my family and friends who is concerned about climate change and find it difficult to talk to them about it, so this course immediately caught my attention:

How to win the climate change argument in a 15 minute tea breakLow Carbon Hub training course with George Marshall, Director of the Climate Outreach Information Network

I assumed it would provide the basics of the science and some facts to convince people that the wettest June ever (and possibly July too!) was happening for a reason, but it turned out to be far more interesting than that.

Witney Mountain Bike Club organised a prize winning ‘cycling float’ of olympic medallists for this year’s Carnival and WitneyBUG joined in too.

Corn Exchange Design & Survey

July 13th, 2012

Two design concepts for the Corn Exchange have been on display at the Langdale Hall for the last 3 weeks. If you couldn’t get there the two concepts can be seen on the home page of the Town Council website.

There’s this survey to complete too. It only takes between 5 and 10 minutes to do and includes an important question on how the work should be financed. The survey closes on Sunday.

Courses at Cogges

July 11th, 2012

Back in the winter, transition and sustainable groups from across West Oxon held a meeting at Cogges and spoke to one of the trustees about ideas we thought might suit the sustainable food theme.

Whether coincidence or not, well done Cogges for putting on courses to help people get to grips with, or brush up on, skills that we used to take for granted.

This month it’s Keeping Chickens, and in August there’s Apple Juice and Cider Making followed by Mushroom Cultivation.

If you haven’t bought your season ticket to the farm yet it’s good value at £13.50 for the year allowing you to visit the farm whenever you want whilst supporting this lovely venture.

And do check the website for their other events this summer.
