Uffculme Green Team promotes sustainable living within our community and encourages people to engage with the “4 Rs”: reduce (consumption), re-use, recycle and repair. As a voluntary community group we try to work constructively with other local organisations, businesses, our Parish Council and residents to reduce our individual and community carbon footprint through a wide variety of activities and events.
Our Right Royal Recycle for the Jubilee weekend is a community ‘give or take’ event – like a table top ‘sale’ but with everything free. People can bring household items which are perfectly good and usable but need a new home – it’s a wonderful way of recycling and sharing pre-loved but no-longer-needed household items without money changing hands. Thus stopping things being thrown away or creating clutter in people’s homes. It also fosters a sense of community as people can meet and mix with other local residents. Free refreshments will add to the spirit of the fun celebration of the event.
