“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.

Sat21Mar20159:00 amWallingford Town Hall, Market Place, Wallingford, OX10 0EGSolar Roadshow at Wallingford Town HallSaturday 21st March, 9am to 3pm.If you have ever wanted to know about solar renewables, find out how solar power benefits the environment and your bank balance, or been confused by the technical jargon of RHI, FiT and PV, then this is the event for you.In April 2014 the Government launched the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme to promote the use of renewable heat. Owners of systems receive payments under the RHI scheme, but, unlike the FiT scheme, payments are compressed into a seven year window, thereby reducing the period over which payback is achieved.
Sims Solar from Wallingford is hosting the Solar Roadshow so that more people will be aware of the different installation schemes. There is no pressure to sign up, just go along and ask questions to find out more about solar renewables. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the event.
