Sustainable Blewbury

Autumn village leaves clear-up – Sunday 2nd December, 2–4 pm

Meet at the Playclose at 2 pm. Bring rakes, barrows and leaf scoops if you have them, or borrow ours.
Afterwards there’s free tea/coffee/juice and home-made cake for volunteers at The Blueberry, from 3.45 pm.

In case of bad weather on 2nd December this will be postponed to Sunday 9th December and publicised widely.

Thermal imaging – February 2019

  • Would you like a warmer home and lower heating bills? Thermal imaging can find where your heat is escaping.

Community orchard news

Earlier this year we had the misfortune to have four trees uprooted and stolen from the orchard. We have now received three of the replacement trees, and planted them on 18th November. The last tree, a Windsor pear, is being specially grafted for us and will be available next March or April when we will be back to a full complement.

Green drinks – Monday 3rd December, from 7.30 pm at The Blueberry

What are ‘green drinks’? Not crème de menthe or a kale smoothie, but a chance to talk over a drink, ask questions or tell us what you think about green topics: anything from issues in and around Blewbury to climate change, biodiversity, or what SB does. Everyone welcome, completely informal, no agenda, just come and chat.

Blewbury Film

October 28, 2018

Blewbury Film is pleased to announce our screening of “Grease – The 40th Anniversary Singalong” as the winter BlewTube on the 12th December.

“Grease” explores the friendships, romances and adventures of a group of American High School kids in the 1950s – but does it in a way that could only have been done in the late 70s! The movie produced a string of number 1 hits, helped launch the career of a young and relatively unknown actor, John Travolta. Now, re-released for its 40th anniversary, this nostalgic Rock’n’Roll high school musical remains a real rush of film. It is full of sensational “Can’t Help but Singalong” songs, fabulous dancing that would send Strictly fans swooning and incredible costumes that have been to more parties than Coco the clown – in fact more of everything that makes a musical film absolutely unforgettable! So, come along to relive the songs, the dance and the adventure of Rydal High, the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies.  Come along if you want to sing along, come along if you don’t want to sing along, come along if you secretly sing along in the shower but don’t want anyone else to know but, either way, make sure you come along to this year’s Blewbury Film winter extravaganza!  Grease – is the word!

“The most successful move musical of all time”
