The Community of Faringdon and surrounding villages is an eclectic mix of overlapping interests, clubs, societies, and groups. These include the schools and churches, as well as more than 100 different clubs and societies.
What better way is there to tap into our common interests for better health and appreciation of the wonderful ecofriendly surrounding countryside - than to come on ECOBIKES or ECOWALK event - meant for all ages and abilities. The environmental benefits of muscle power for transport also come into their own!
Walkers and runners also welcome!
Faringdon recently signed the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change as one of the first towns to do so- and is now aiming to become a Transition Town. - in preparing for a post-oil economy. Follow the town’s progress here.
The Churches in Faringdon and surrounding villages work closely together on social and environmental issues, and many are also active independently. The Ecumenical Justice & Peace Group are the main organisers of the Faringdon ECOWEEK.
Many of the Schools have also made great progress in tackling environmental issues, and some already have eco-accreditation awards to show for their efforts..
