Eco Action News – our first newsletter!

We are delighted to  present our first newsletter for all our members, complete with competition for school-age children. This has gone out to schools and will hopefully keep some children happy over half-term, as well as giving information on our projects, a seasonal recipe and handy tips for cutting CO2.

If you have children or grandchildren, download the competition entry page on the last page of the newsletter – just click the image.

Future editions will appear on the newsletter page here: abingdoncarboncutters.org.uk/newsletter/

Christmas Social

We made table decorations from the armfuls of greenery Lucille brought, shared delicious home-made nibbles, gave each other “Secret Santa” presents which cost little or nothing but were chosen with love for the planet, and ended the evening raising the roof with our renditions of Christmas songs and carols. The Hearth with its log fire could have been at any time in the last millennium – full of warm good cheer. Thanks to Lucille, Christine and everyone who made it such fun.

The Perennial Bee Beds just got bigger!

The Vale Council were so pleased with our perennial bee beds last year, they have cleared an equal-sized space the other end of the same bed so we now have twice the area!

A few weekends ago, 6 people planted 1060 bulbs in the new area! Watch out for a splendid display next Spring!

Watch out for a display of bulbs in the Spring!

The new part of the perennial bed is right beside the zip wire!
