“Trashed” – An award-winning film with Jeremy Irons
Wednesday 11th June 7.30pm
Corn Exchange, Wallingford
If you think waste is someone else’s problem … think again!
Discover through this award-winning film with Jeremy Irons the extent and effects of the global waste problem, as he travels around the world to beautiful destinations tainted by pollution.
This is a meticulous, brave investigative journey that takes Irons (and us) from scepticism to sorrow and from horror to hope.

Discussion on issues of design and sustainability of Wallingford new housing. Possible discussion also of wider issues of housing numbers in South Oxfordshire.
Follow up to seminars held on 6th March involving local food growers, restaurateurs, pub owners, food marketeers, and food shops on how to increase the production and consumption of local foods. For further details contact Phil Pritchard or Jill Bindoff on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Date to be decided!
Following our serious floodings last winter and spring, Oxfordshire council and SODC have been learning lessons and preparing for future events. OCC and SODC speakers will present, a wide range of related issues will be addressed and searching questions are invited. A possibly separate meeting will address local flood prevention plans and how these could be strengthened (e.g., appointing water bailiffs in each parish?) The link with planned massive expansion of new housing will also be addressed.
