Wastewatchers at the Charlbury Beer Festival

One of the less well-known aspects of the Charlbury Beer Festival is how little waste it generates. Thanks to Christine Elliott and her hard-working team, everything discarded on the day of the festival is sorted for recycling, with only unrecyclable items such as crisp packets, cigarette ends and nappies going to landfill. Last weekend, up to 4000 people came and went (including our previous MP and our current one - see the 'Tweets' section of for a clip of our current MP playing Aunt Sally) - leaving just two small orange bags of unrecyclable waste.
