Pop-up plant stall

Following on from the success of Seedy Sunday, The Green Network held a pop-up plant swap outside the library.  There was an opportunity to bring along seeds, seedlings and plants to swap - or just to come and browse, with a view to taking away seeds and plants in exchange for a small donation.  To keep in touch with green initiatives in the village, visit  the Green Network's website or follow them on Facebook.

'Eco' Partyware for hire

If you're planning a children's party, you now have no need to buy single use paper / plastic which will end up in landfill.  Kate Outhwaite has purchased a set which you can rent in aid of Downton Primary School Association.  There are reusable cups, plates, jugs, cutlery and serving plates  - the price paid depends on your willingness to wash up. Contact Kate on 07971 518975.

Keep plastic out of landfill

The Green Network, in conjunction with Plastic Free Downton, would like to remind you that you can now recycle just about all the plastic that you use - bottles, containers etc can go into your blue lidded bin and the 'soft' plastic collection bin is back at the newly refurbished Co-op.

More information on this and other 'eco' matters on Downton Green Network's web-site.
