Sustainable Crediton Newsletter Issue 91

Welcome to our March Newsletter.

It was brilliant to see such a busy, vibrant and interesting Seed Share event in its new venue The Boniface Centre on the 24th February. We think it was our best Seed Share ever, with more stalls and a record attendance. The atmosphere was tremendous, the food at the Surplus Food Cafe delicious and the overall event a massive success. Read more about it and see the pictures.

Coming up this month we have the regular Woodland Group work parties and a Waste Action Group meeting. See What's On for more details. There is also an exhibition in Crediton Library for Re-use Week from the 5th March about our Refill stations in Crediton where you can get free refills for your water bottle.
