Remember last summer’s West Oxford Climate Challenge? Well, if you live on Osney, this summer is YOUR chance to take part in mark ii of this ground-breaking energy research project with the University of Oxford.
All you need to do is sign up for your free kit, then note your main activities with a simple app over two specific days – we’ll show you how.
You’ll learn how daily activities shape our electricity use and what we can do to reduce it at critical times, and we’ll share your electricity profile with you – which can be really enlightening!
And the fun part: the residents on the Osney street which collectively reduce their electricity use the most when asked during the challenge win prizes and THE OSNEY POWER TROPHY.
Sign up online or by completing the tear-away form on the flyers which should be popping through your doors on Osney in the next few weeks.
Weekly market full of locally sourced fresh produce held every Saturday in Wallingford. Including vegetables, beer, bread, cheese and much more! Location changes weekly so please check out Facebook Page for location. https://www.facebook.com/wallingfordlocalproducersmarket/
Bring along your broken electricals, computers, clothes, toys, clocks, watches, jewellery, and tools for sharpening, and we’ll have expert volunteers waiting to help you fix them!
Tea, cake and coffee available
All for free (donations welcome!)
Please only bring household items that you can carry.
Don’t forget to bring all the relevant leads and connectors/chargers etc. if you bring an electrical item.
If you can give us details in advance, that might help the repairers prepare.

Give an old shirt a new lease of life…
…as an owl doorstop, a cushion cover and a chicken!
Bring along your sewing machine, a cushion pad and a shirt to upcycle (or choose a shirt from our collection) for an afternoon of sewing fun.
£10 per person
This workshop is supported by funding from Oxfordshire County Council to reduce textile waste. Around 350,000 tonnes of clothes go to landfill every year in the UK. Let’s find ways to keep our favourite fabrics in our lives -even when they’re no longer wearable!
Come along to the next Oxford Food Surplus Cafe – with summery salads galore!
Come for lunch, food being served pay-as-you-feel 1-3pm
Or why not sign up as a volunteer – just drop your name in any of the slots you can make here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1o0qZ-Wh_BwpL-l3iHRqCBB3eBLc3EIsAQnYOnE2CMn4/edit?usp=sharing
It’s a shop… in a van! The finest, freshest local and organic fruit and veg Oxfordshire can supply, with additional produce from UK and the rest of Europe.
SUMMERTOWN FARMERS’ MARKET | Sundays 10am-2.30pm | Banbury Road, in front of M&S.

We meet every Sunday afternoon to garden together, share a cup of tea and cake, learn about growing and take home fresh fruit and veg.
In the darker months of the year (Nov-Apr) we meet from 12-4pm on Sundays and when the days are longer (May-Oct) we meet from 1-5pm on Sundays and from 5-8pm on Wednesdays.
Our garden is free to access and we welcome people of all levels of experience to share the space in an inclusive and supportive environment.
