If you sometimes wonder where to start with tackling your own greenhouse gas emissions, WinACC Trustee Bob Whitmarsh has just published a book to help you. 

Incredible Edible Winchester, WinACC's Food Action Group, now has an allotment at Edington Road, off Worthy Lane Winchester (near the football ground). 

They invite people, individuals or families, to come along and either learn about growing or share their knowledge about growing edible plants….growing locally and seasonally in action.  

They write:

Small groups checked the most important walking routes through Winchester town in 2016, to decide where signposts are needed and where obstructions should be removed.

This was a project of Feet First, the Winchester City Council 2016-2017 theme.

WinACC welcomed the opportunity to comment on the proposed redrafted licensing policy for Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles and have written a formal response.

Urban trees can provide a wide range of benefits to society. For example: reduce surface water flooding, provide shade during hot weather, remove air pollutants and improve the attractiveness of an area.
