Dinnertime returns to Witney, this Wednesday

January 11th, 2015

It’s a bit short notice, I know, but: Dinnertime returns to Witney on Wednesday 14 January. This is a fun afternoon of cooking together and free food.

At Tower Hill school volunteers, raw ingredients and utensils will all be available 3.15–6pm. All you have to do is book a free place (see below) so they’ve got an idea of numbers, and come along to roll your sleeves up and get cooking.

For more information and details on how to book, check the event’s own page.

Last Dinnertime was an amazing success: here’s a bit more about it, and here’s a mouthwatering, tantalizing photograph of what they cooked last time, and what they might cook again this time:

Autumn event schedule: Swap Shop, Dinnertime, Cogges Christmas, committee meeting…!

September 21st, 2014

We’ve come back from our summer break with a great schedule of sustainable events for Witney in autumn. We’re not finished yet, but here’s what’s already planned thanks to SW and other CAGs and like-minded organizations:

  • The committee is having its quarterly meeting at St Mary’s Church on Wednesday 15 October. All welcome: you don’t have to volunteer if you come along.
  • There’s an autumn Swap Shop at Cogges on Sunday 26 October. Come along, get rid of your old (working) stuff, and maybe find a bargain.
  • Dinnertime returns to Witney on Sunday 19 October. Click through and have a look at that amazing food they cooked last time; and then let Ellie know you’re coming along via the contact link on that post.
  • We have a stall at Cogges Christmas fair on Sunday 7 December, where we’ll be demonstrating sustainable Christmas decorations!

We’re also planning a sustainable drinks some time in the autumn, an informal social evening where we don’t have to feel like we’re organizing or doing specific tasks. Keep informed of this, and all our events, by registering to subscribe to our news feed.
