SHARE Oxford Open Meeting @ Makespace
Sep 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
SHARE Oxford Open Meeting @ Makespace | England | United Kingdom

The two volunteer coordinators have done a lot of groundwork, and are planning the next stage – preparing a soft launch. We  are now searching for members of the group and for people to make the service happen. If you fancy becoming a borrower voting member, applying your skills, sharing your knowledge or learning more about zero waste, the sharing or circular economy and putting it into practice, or simply getting to meet like-minded people – we need you on board. As much or as little time you can put in, our offer is flexible and can arrange for both daytime and evening / weekend opportunities.

Help us make this innovative project one that works for all – for our wellbeing, for the economy, for our pockets, and for the planet. Have a look at the agenda and our advertised roles, consider what you role you’d be interested in, and come along to our first Open General meeting :

Tuesday 11th September 18:30 – 20:00 @ Makespace Oxford – 1 Aristotle Lane, OX2 6TP.

If you come, you’ll be able to see where the Library is, what it’s like and what’s in it so far. Let us know you’re coming by emailing chair@shareoxford.org.

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand!

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!

Local produce market @ St. Nicolas Church, Abingdon
Sep 14 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

The St Nic’s local produce and craft market is back! Every Friday morning between 11am and 1pm there will be stall in the little garden at the top of Stert Street (in the church if wet) selling fresh veg, local eggs, home-baked cakes and preserves, plants, seedlings and flowers.

Go early to get the best selection!

Even more important, if you have any produce to sell, you can do so at the market provided you collect the money and any unsold items promptly at 1pm, and donate 10% of the takings to St Nicolas Church funds. To join the happy band of producers, email Gilly Osborne ongho@dial.appleinter.net.

We are very happy to support this well-established venture bringing excellent, incredibly fresh local food right into the centre of town. Please help make it a success!

The Market is run completely by volunteers – we have a pool of about 60 people involved and about 15 work on any Saturday morning to run the market.
