We’re joining up with the Great British Spring Clean and holding our 15th Community Litter Pick on Sunday 31 March. Meet at White’s Field Car Park at 10:00 am. There are varying lengths of footpaths and areas to clear so if you can only spare an hour, there will be something for you. We plan to finish by 12:30 latest. If there is an area you particularly think should be included, please let us know.

Our thanks to Diane at the Field Café who is kindly giving a free hot drink to all participants of the litter pick.

Sustainable jet fuel from rubbish – how does that work? @ Blewbury Clubhouse
Apr 1 @ 8:00 pm
Sustainable jet fuel from rubbish - how does that work? @ Blewbury Clubhouse | Blewbury | England | United Kingdom

A talk by Dr. Neville Hargreaves
Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of aviation is tougher than for any other form of transport – and emissions are growing fast. Neville is working with British Airways and others on an exciting project to build the UK’s first commercial sustainable jet-fuel plant. This will convert household waste into jet fuel – reducing greenhouse gases and converting hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste that would otherwise be incinerated or put into landfill. He will describe how the process works, what it can do for the environment present and future, and the many practical challenges of bringing a really big industrial project to fruition.
Tickets £4 from Blewbury Post Office, or on the door (if not sold out); drinks available from the bar. NOTE: Bohams Road is at the western end of Blewbury, off the A417. On entering the road, Clubhouse is first right turn. Do NOT go up the long hill!

Waste Collaborate Group Meeting @ Makespace Oxford
Apr 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Collaborate events are opportunities for Community Action Groups (CAGs) working on similar projects or across a common theme to meet up, share and find ways of working together.

The meetings are open to members of the CAG network, as well as other associated, like-minded groups and organisations. We also moderate theme mailing lists for CAGs to communicate with each other between meetings.

As a large network spread across the county, the meetings are an important chance for CAGs to:

  • Discover more about other groups’ activities and achievements
  • Share knowledge and skills
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative projects and funding bids
  • Gain advice and support from The CAG Project staff and other members
  • Network and socialise with other members
