Sustainable Blewbury

Village Leaf Clearance: This year it is on Sunday afternoon, 27th November. Please meet us on the Play Close at 2 pm. We are running it with the help of the BVS and Parish Council. We all use the footpaths so please help us clear them of slippery leaves. Bring rakes and barrows if you have them, or you can borrow ours. There will be tea/coffee/juice and cake for volunteers afterwards at The Blueberry (who are kindly sponsoring the event).

Blewbury Garden Market Extra: A quick reminder that you can buy locally made bread and cakes for the weekend at the Post Office on Saturday mornings from 9.30 am – so call in before doing your weekly shop! Any unsold bread is put in the freezer so is available during the week as well. If you feel like occupying a couple of hours with baking on a Friday, bring your efforts along and we will sell them for you (10% retained, split between PO and SB). We also sell preserves and occasional produce (such as Jerusalem artichokes) all week.

Apple juicing: Sincere thanks to everyone who came along with their buckets of apples and saved this wonderful resource from being wasted by turning it into delicious juice! Thanks also to our team of volunteers, who spent many hours cleaning and preparing apples for the shredder and washing down the equipment afterwards. If you still have apples on your trees, you can hire our equipment for £10 – contact

Thermal imaging of houses: We will again be borrowing the Vale’s thermal camera in January in order to help people improve their home’s insulation. This can make it warmer, save money and reduce carbon emissions – a triple win. We image your house and provide a report free of charge. If you would like your house imaged, or re‑imaged to check improvements, please email us at or phone Jo Lakeland (850490) or Eric Eisenhandler (850558).
