'Green Drinks' Network

A number of people from Winkleigh and surrounding area have been keeping in touch with each other to share information and ideas.  We are people who are interested in a broad range of environmental issues, from carbon reduction to birds and mammals and growing our own food. In the past three years, several projects have been started by members of the 'Green Drinks' network.  These have included a monthly Recycling Event run by volunteers from January 2013 and a Community facility at D and S Winkleigh Airfield, where we collected mixed (food) plastics, bottles, cardboard and re-usable clothing. We are involved in the new Winkleigh Community Plan Action Group. which is implementing the Winkleigh Community Plan. There is also a group developing a conservation area at the Playing Fields surrounding the Sports Centre in Winkleigh. We have run a village-wide garage sale and a scrap metal skip. We are an informal network rather than a club or society.  We have no membership, no committee and everyone is welcome to join us, just occasionally or regularly. If you would like to be involved, or come along to our occasional social evenings in the pub, please contact Kim J Melhuish via the Contact List on this website or via Facebook.
