  • Celebrating Mother Earth on Mayday

    Will you be watching maypole dancers on the village green or revelling with the Green Man this May bank holiday?  Maybe you’ll simply be taking the opportunity to light up the bbq with friends or family.    Whatever you’re up to, the reason you’ve got the day off has very ancient roots.  The Roma...

  • Have yourself a climate-conscious Christmas 2021

    Can we talk about it yet? Christmas?! 😊 There’s no escaping Christmas in the UK.  From as early as September we are told that, in order to have even a smidgen of fun, we need to buy, buy, buy!
