Special Events


Every Christmas we gather by the log fire in the warm Hearth at St Ethel wold’s House and share festive nibbles, sing carols and give little presents. Anyone interested in reducing Abingdon’s carbon footprint can come!

This year we will start by making a seasonal table decoration to take home, from natural materials – leaves, berries, cones – Lucille is going to bring plenty for all, including some small terracotta pots, but if you want to bring your own small pot or dish, or some extra trimmings, please do!

Mulled wine or mulled apple juice from the Summer pressing will be provided, but bring something sweet (or a savoury nibble) to go with it!

Our Secret Santa has a twist – every gift must have cost you almost nothing! Either something you made yourself, an unwanted gift, or something recycled – be creative! To join in, just bring a gift. If you don’t want to bring one that’s fine, come anyway!

And to finish the evening, Christine will lead us in singing some carols or other festive songs, with her fabulous accompaniment on the piano.

It’s a good time to get to know other carbon cutters and have fun. See you there?
