Our first Repair Cafe

Saturday 29th February, 2 to 4 pm, in the Melland Room, Blewbury Clubhouse

You will be able to get something fixed, save money, help save the planet, and have a cup of coffee and home-made cake all at the same time. If it’s worn out, torn or has just stopped working, don’t throw it away – bring it to our Repair Cafe and we’ll try to fix it. We hope to have volunteers who can sharpen tools and knives, do electrical and mechanical repairs, help with sewing and upcycling clothes, fix bikes, and stick things back together. All repairs are free, but a donation to cover expenses would be appreciated. More details in the next Bulletin.

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 on food he will look at the surprising range of impacts of our food choices: Is food responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transport? Is our diet sustainable in a net-zero carbon world? Do we need to eat animal produce for protein and calcium? Do we grow enough food to feed the world? Local food is much better, isn’t it? All this and more!

Tickets £6 including a drink and nibbles, on sale in February at the Post Office.

Love Food Hate Waste

Saturday 14th March, 10 am to 12 noon, in the Melland Room, Blewbury Clubhouse

Would you like to save food, save money and help the planet? Love Food Hate Waste is a workshop put on by Blewbury Climate Action with the help of the WI that can help you do all that. A free event with ideas on how to use all the food you buy, avoid waste, and have a free lunch afterwards! Save the date. More in the next Bulletin.
