Zero Carbon Wedmore Report

Event location:
Event date and time: 10/08/2019 00:00

Thank you to everyone that came to our meeting last night. Our discussion was all about our ZCW report. 

The report as been completed and I have attached it for everyone to read/ take an interest in.

Many thanks to the fine efforts of Sonya who has been the driving force behind its production and the Wedmore Power Co-op for the necessary funding. 

During this process Green Wedmore was nominated for a national award for its pioneering work and ended up being shortlisted. Unfortunately, as our report was still in the process of being finalised it meant we couldn't win. 

But there is always next year!

Green Wedmore New Year update

Event location:
Event date and time:
We have been busy over the last few months at Green Wedmore. Check out our Campaigns page to see some of most recent projects. 

As with many groups, and charities, because of not being able to run very many community events
this year, Green Wedmore is in need of a boost of funds!

We have sadly missed out on our usual income streams e.g. our monthly donation tin some of you,
who come to meetings, contribute to. We have had no takings and donations from our repair café’s,
Street Fayre, etc. as everything has been cancelled, and yet we still have bills to pay, e.g. hosting fees
for our website and maintenance costs on Terry’s woodland. 
  
Since the plant up day, at Worthington Woods we have had kind donations to buy timber to make
benches and the church has also donated a bench that they no longer required.
 
To further support our income, I’m inviting you to a no obligation fund raiser, this has 2 functions, to
help with Green Wedmore funds and to share on a 50/50 basis with the Food Forest Project – who
throughout the year have given to us freely as a village to set up and provide everything our food
forest site.  How lovely it would be to leave them in a position to help others on their next project –
and say a big thank you from ‘Wedmore’!
 
One of the projects the FFP are working on now, seeks to work with an area suffering with social
deprivation, poverty and mental health issues, and a further project in the pipeline is to work directly with MIND, where they are offering their second Shepton Mallet forest site as a special place
for therapy (they have recently installed an outdoor ‘classroom’).

So, we hope, if you are in a position to donate and you wish to, you could visit our Crowdfunder and
donate a few pennies to our Festive Fundraiser:
