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.

We need your apples

Dear Carbon Cutters,
At the Carbon Cutters stall at Fun in the Park next Sunday 13th September, in the Abbey grounds in Abingdon, we are going to have fun making juice from windfall (or otherwise surplus) apples. We have been lent a mincer and apple press, so all we need now is LOTS OF APPLES.

If your garden ( or your neighbour's garden!) is full of apples, and you were wondering what to do with them, worry no more!

Ideally we would like you to bring them to the Abbey Gardens on Sunday between 12.30 and 2.30 (we'll be there from 12.30 and Fun in the Parks is from 1.30 to 4). If you bring a clean bottle you can take some fresh juice away with you - but be warned, a pint of juice needs several kilos of apples! We are talking industrial quantities here.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE APPLES YOU ARE WILLING TO GIVE. If you can't bring them on Sunday, please contact me to arrange where to drop them off, or when we can collect them from you.

If you can help on the stall, even for an hour, that would be even better! Please let me know if you can.

Hope to hear from you this week..
