Our first Repair Café
Saturday 29th February, 2 to 4 pm, in the Melland Room, Blewbury Clubhouse
If it’s worn out, torn or has just stopped working don’t bin it, bring it to see if we can fix it! We aim to have a team of local experts who can sharpen tools and knives, do electrical and mechanical repairs, help with sewing and upcycling clothes, fix bikes, and stick things back together. If we can’t fix it we’ll try to suggest where you can go to get it looked at. And you can enjoy our café while you watch us work. All repairs are free, but a donation to cover expenses would be appreciated.
The mind-blowing truth about our food – a talk by Anthony Simpson
Monday 9th March, 8.00 pm, in Blewbury Manor Barn
Anthony gave us an excellent talk on electric cars a year ago. In this talk he will look at the surprising range of impacts of our food choices. Food is a crucial element in reducing carbon emissions – this talk will help us make reasoned choices. Anthony’s research produced some facts that will surprise us, with answers to questions like:
- Is food responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transport?
- Do we grow enough food to feed the world?
- How do our food choices impact fires in the Amazon, ocean dead zones and water shortages?
- Is our diet sustainable in a net-zero carbon world?
- Do we need to eat animal produce for protein and calcium?
- Local food is much better, isn’t it?
Tickets £6 including a drink and nibbles, from the Post Office (or on the door if not sold out).
