About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

Dear all,
Do you have any windfalls on your lawn, or do you know a neighbour who does? We need as many as possible this Saturday 19th as we are in the Market Place from 10am - 2pm with the splendid apple press loaned by Robert Longstaff of Longworth. Any apples can be used, the brown bits can be cut out!

If you can bring them on the day that's ideal, but if not, let us know and we will be round to collect them!

And if you can spare an hour or so to help with the juicing, even better! Please contact Cliff Marshall if you think you can, on candpmarshall@btinternet.com . It's great fun! And a good way to capture people's imagination about wasting less food, thus helping to cut our carbon footprint.

A photo of our really successful stall at the Fun in the Parks day is on the Abingdon Blog - http://www.abingdonblog.co.uk look at Monday 14th Sept.
there are more photos further down this blog entry.

Recipes from our wonderful "How to use all your apples" evening last night will be posted here shortly. A big thank you to all who contributed food - especially Richard for his heavenly blackberry and apple (and orange and lemon and cherry cordial!) crumble, and Susie for the most scrumptious Tarte Tatin I've ever tasted. Those who came had a real treat...
