Sustainable Blewbury Annual General Meeting

We held our 2021 AGM combined with the postponed 2020 AGM via Zoom on Tuesday evening, 20th April. We reviewed what we have been doing in the past two years and discussed ideas for future activities beyond our ongoing ones like the Garden Market and apple juicing. These include tree planting, more repair cafés, self-guided nature walk(s) in and around the village, improving the health of the Cleve and monitoring the health of our streams, a working group to advise on low-carbon heating, and activities around COP26 in connection with Blewbury Climate Action.

The following officers were elected:

• Chair: John Ogden

• Secretary: Jane Kinniburgh

• Treasurer: Moray Inglis

• Trustees: Hugh Osborn, Glen Meadows

Blewbury Garden Market

We started the 2021 season of our weekly Saturday morning market (9.15 to 11.15 am) at Blewbury filling station with a very good opening session on 17th April This is our 12th year, and we decided to try starting earlier in the season than in the past. The main interest so far is mainly plants and seedlings, but we expect to get more produce as the season progresses. We also have ample supplies of local honey, and home-made bread.

If you have surplus fruit, vegetable or flower seedlings (or preserves or baked goods) bring them along at 9.00 am and we can try to sell them (You keep 90% of the price). If you would like to volunteer to help on the stall (in a COVID-safe way), please contact either Eric (850558 or 07935 232296) or John (850372).
