Reducing Waste in the Lambourn Valley

To help reduce waste in the Lambourn Valley, Julie Pitt has set up two facebook groups that everyone in Lambourn, Eastbury, East Garston and Great Shefford are very welcome to join:

NON FOOD WASTE Items for the Community where people can give away and collect stuff for free (like a virtual swap shop)

FOOD Waste Heroes Lambourn & Surrounging Areas for people to exchange unwanted food. Julie is a member of OLIO and collects food from supermarkets that would otherwise be thrown away.


Julie is one of the thousands of Olio volunteers across the country who collect food that supermarkets would otherwise throw away and distribute it to their communities

This video explains how it works.
