We launched BREATHE for better air, transport, health and environment at our meeting on 1 April 2017. We want the BREATHE name and logo to be taken up by everyone who wants better air, transport, health and environment. We hope you will run your own BREATHE actions.

Tell candidates you want action from the County Council to tackle climate change. The list of candidates is on the HCC website.

WinACC's draft plan for the financial year 2017-2018 puts more emphasis on how we influence the infrastructure of Winchester District. Please have a look and let us know your thoughts.

Eco Church is A Rocha UK’s award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth. WinACC will do all we can to support churches in Winchester District. We can supply materials, quizzes, games for community events, ideas, speakers - just get in touch.

"A great talk showing that new housing can be good for the environment and commercially successful!” said the Mayor.

April 2017

Transition Southampton started in 2008 and has achieved a huge amount in that time. It has been run by a small group of ever-changing individuals, all committed to the goals and values of sustainable living. This year, they find themselves without enough core members to carry on. They need to look at their own sustainability.

All are invited to a meeting to discuss and begin the formation of a Winchester District sustainable food partnership. Seb Mayfield, the organiser, says:

WinACC will be the charity collecting the stall holders' fees at the Cattle Market car boot sale (on the corner of Andover Road and Worthy Lane, Winchester SO23 7AB) on Sunday 30 April.

So if you are thinking of having car boot sale this spring, please do it then.

We will also have a stall. So if you aren't, please give us your stuff for us to sell. Email or phone the office on 01962 827083 if you have items to donate.

Allotment - under the grass there are raspberries!

Come and see our new community allotment and see how you can get involved.  Our aim is to help each other learn about growing seasonal foods, reducing our food miles, with the added benefit of being able to eat what we grow.

Donate to WinACC

As 2017 brings uncertainty and political turmoil, WinACC needs your help to keep the light of hope shining in the dark. Please give as much as you can today.
