The group was set up in 2007 to explore ways of working towards sustainability in various aspects of the life of the community: energy-saving and energy-generation, local food production, sustainable transport. Income for its activities is generated by processing and selling firewood from trees which have to be felled in the village or the Park for one reason or another.
We organise various events from time to time, we hold meetings in the Village Hall, with speakers and films on various topics.
Our main activities are illustrated in the photograph below of the SK float in the Jubilee Parade in 2012.
Full details of the group, its activities and meetings may be found on its website: www.sustainablekirtlington.co.uk
See link for the flyer for an upcoming film event (Cowspiracy poster 1 -2) in March 2016. The message of the film is powerful and sobering, but it is presented in an entertaining way. We hope that you will be able to join us.
