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

Every autumn we clear slippery leaves from our lovely footpaths and make it a fun event for all the family. A great way to do your bit to help keep Blewbury beautiful. (Let us know If you can take a few bags of leaves to compost.)

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.
  • If you have already improved your insulation, would you like us to check that it’s effective?

To have your home thermally imaged by Sustainable Blewbury volunteers in February, email us at or phone Jo Lakeland (850490). This service is FREE, so it’s best to book soon.

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.
