In March 2013, the Charlbury Area Waste Action Group changed its name to the Charlbury Green Hub with a new website www.charlburygreenhub.org.uk or the briefer URLs www.cghub.org.uk and www.chub.org.uk with links to us on Twitter and Facebook.
The website is continually updated so pay a visit regularly to see what's new, for example:
New events going on the calendar of events all the time e.g. guided tours of Westmill Wind Farm & Solar Park, visits to Wytham Woods, Witney Food & Drink Festival, Wild & Precious mindfulness retreat in Charlbury, local asparagus goes on sale etc

All of CAWAG's activities are continuing, the Bring & Takes in March and October and the Charlbury Sharecroppers redistribution of apples in the autumn with the cider making for the Beer Festival. We'll also continue to organise things like secure paper shredding, tool sharpening, bike repairs and collecting things like bras, spectacles, CDs, and cassette tapes for reuse or recycling - bring them along to the Bring & Takes or to our stall at the Farmers Market.
The aim of this hub is to help local people and groups find their way around environmental issues, to share their experiences and to spread Charlbury's good ideas to other communities in Oxfordshire. Our new website will be a good starting point for you to find out more about our local countryside, food, energy, travel, and the wider implications for our planet's limited resources and climate change. We provide a list of things that can be shared by other groups or individuals in Charlbury so that we can work together better as a sharing community . . . and save money and resources in the process.
CAWAG started in 1997 and was one of the first members of the Oxfordshire Community Action Group network which originally concentrated on waste. But times and issues move on, and now we are one of about 50 community groups in the Oxfordshire network all taking action on climate change, including waste reduction, carbon reduction, sustainable transport, and food, energy and water issues, to live a more sustainable and less resource dependent life in our local communities.
