Clothes & products made from waste for the Re:Design Challenge

Led by Rachel Platt, WinACC trustee, this is a chance to enjoy the beautiful dawn chorus at Winnall Moors nature reserve and improve your birdsong ID skills.

The next 6-monthly Hampshire Climate Action Network meeting will be on Saturday 30 April 9.30 for coffee and introductions; business 10-12.30, then bring and share lunch.

This is open to everyone who is actively working against climate change in their communities in Hampshire to meet and share experiences. The purpose is to share news, learn from successes and failures, and work together were appropriate. It is informal workshop-style, no speakers, and a bring-and-share lunch afterwards to network.


The Re:Design Exhibition will be on display at the Keates Room of Winchester Guildhall  on 30th of April from 11.30 - 5.30pm. This is an exciting showcase of the items that were entered into the Great Waste design challenge. People of all ages created products for home and work made from wasted resources. Pick up instructions on how you can make them yourself.
