Wed 3 Jun: Garden Butterfly ID training (A virtual beginner's guide via Zoom).18.30 - 19.30 Workshop 1 of 2

Wild Oxfordshire had planned to run some face to face workshops as part of their ambition to get more volunteers recording butterflies specifically in the Evenlode Catchment. They have now changed the format to run it for free, on-line using Zoom, widening the audience to anyone in Oxfordshire. The aim is to help people get their ID skills up to speed in their garden and then next year we will have an army of volunteers ready for the next stage to record species in the wider countryside.

 Nick Bowles of Butterfly Conservation is kindly running it free of charge.

Thu 4 Jun: Midnight ordering deadline for collecting fresh veg, fish, milk, cheese, eggs, etc from outside Community Centre on Saturday

Order deadline midnight Thursday for collection the following Saturday.  Order your box from StyanFamilyProduce.co.uk and pay online. Also available on the website are Bibury fish, JoJo's milk, Stainswick Farm oils and dressings, Charlbury honey, preserves, free-range eggs AND NOW Smarts Vintage Single Cheese.

Check your email on Sat morning for your collection timeslot in the afternoon. To enable the safe collection of the pre-ordered boxes, there are 10 minute timeslots for up to 13 people to collect from 7 different collection points alongside the Community Centre organised by surname (name used for the order). Notifications are sent out on Saturday morning by email to everyone who has ordered a box. Please keep your 2m social distance and ensure only one person at each collection point at any time.

Items ordered will all be in your box EXCEPT the pre-ordered FISH which needs to be collected from the Bibury Fish Farm van which will be on site and the pre-ordered MILK and CHEESE which needs to be collected from the insulated boxes in the shade of the big sycamore tree. If you have just ordered fish, milk or cheese without any fruit or veg then there won't be a box or a timeslot and you can collect your items anytime between 2-3pm.

Please bring your own bag to transfer produce from the box and please return egg boxes and apple juice bottles for reuse - there is a national shortage of egg boxes.

To reduce contacts maybe arrange to collect for friends and neighbours.  if you are doing this please email info@charlburygreenhub.org.uk and provide details so we can group your boxes together in the shade of the big tree by the entrance to the community centre for collection any time 2-3pm rather than have a specific timeslot.

House-bound and need your box delivered? Call the Community Centre on 01608 811878 or if engaged try 01608 819253 (weekdays only) or email your request to info@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk. These boxes will also be under the shade of the tree and can be collected the pre-arranged volunteers any time 2-3pm rather than a specific timeslot - BUT WE NEED TO KNOW THE SURNAME USED FOR PLACING THE ORDER SO WE CAN LOCATE THE BOX FOR COLLECTION BY THE VOLUNTEER.

Normally Styan come to Charlbury Farmers Market every 3 months, but now we are lucky they are making up veg boxes for collection in Charlbury every Saturday afternoon. There is a £6 box of a seasonal vegetables without potatoes and optional items like asparagus, broad beans, peas, spinach, salad bags, spring onions, beetroot, cucumber, new potatoes, pink fir apple potatoes, strawberries, gooseberries, and Worcestershire tomatoes grown using heat from a biomass boiler. 

See CharlburyCAN Instagram for favourite recipes using seasonal food throughout the year and for tips to avoid food waste. Use #charlburyCAN etc hashtags to share your own favourites.

Dairy Kefir grains - available free of charge, please email info@charlburygreenhub.org uk to request some and bring a very small jam jar of milk to take some grains away.

Wed 9 Dec: Charlbury Art Society

An Evening with Elena Piras

Elena will talk about her life and play some of the music she has written as well as other work she finds inspiring

Elena Piras is an award-winning solo artist specialising in traditional Gaelic and Scots folk music. She has performed live extensively, including at the Opera North Twilight Season in Leeds in 2015 and the Box Full of Treasures festival in Italy in 2013, which was also the year she released her debut album ‘Journey’ to critical acclaim.

In more recent years, she has continued to make music despite near-death experiences (plural), multiple sensory loss, chronic pain and the inevitable highs and lows that go along with trying to make a success of a creative life in troubled times. Happily, she is now well on the way to completing her second studio album ‘Where the Wind Blows’ and is still an in-demand name on the live folk circuit. Some of this new material has already enjoyed radio play on the BBC Introducing in Oxford show.

Elena cites Charlbury’s incredible community as her foremost reason for settling here. The varied connections and support she has received - both in and out of music - have proven invaluable to her and she looks forward to making a few more after her talk and performance!
