Sustainable Didcot is a community action group for Didcot residents with a shared interest in the environment, living sustainably and raising awareness of climate change.

 

We believe that through positive action we, as a community, can reduce Didcot’s impact on this global threat.

 

The group follows the 1987 UN’s Bruntland Commission definition of Sustainability:

“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

 

Sustainable Didcot focuses on:

Waste/recycling * Local food * Energy * Transport


We are part of the Oxfordshire Community Action Group network.

Forthcoming events

Current projects

  • Free-cycle Live – an event to enable unwanted goods (clothes, books, toys etc.) to be transferred to others. Thus encouraging reuse, rather than items going to landfill. Every three months at the Saturday market outside Sainsburys. Next market November 25th.
  • Vege-cycle - bring and swap fruit and vegetables.
  • Community Allotment – enabling residents to learn about growing their own produce. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at the allotment with the polytunnel on the New Road site
  • Incredible Edible Didcot – edible food garden in the centre of Didcot! Look out for the herb and fruit garden between Cornerstone and the Cinema.
  • Thermal Imaging Project – a project within Didcot, alongside South Oxfordshire District Council, to identify where heat is leaking from buildings, and to suggest solutions to this problem.
  • Dinner Time community kitchen event – using spare food (maybe in the back of your cupboard or in your allotment!) to make and share a meal with other members of the community. Aiming to reduce the amount of food we throw away.
  • Green Drinks - we meet for an informal social gathering and networking with anyone interested in the environment and sustainability on the second Thursday of the month 7.30-9pm at Cornerstone
