Bottle tops to Books: Rumble's Ecofest comes to Cheney

On Tuesday 11th October, we were delighted to welcome sixteen different organisations and stall-runners to our Eco Festival at Cheney. Between 2 and 4pm, the whole of Year Twelve, as well as many students from younger year groups explored the large range of information and activity stalls run by Headington Liveable Streets, Conservation Optimism, Low Carbon Hub, Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Action, Wild Oxfordshire, XROxford, and artist Lucinda Creed.

Flora and the PTA Team ran a fantastic vegan and vegetarian snacks and meals stall. Sophie Quantrell ran an eco-themed books stall., and Cheney Sixth Form Environment Committee ran a Debate Topics stall.

Students were able to take part in a range of eco-themed crafts with Year Nine Museum Council students from bottle top artwork to badge-making and upcycling tin cans. XR Oxford offered a range of beautiful block printing, and Conservation Optimism ran a recipe competition amongst many other things.

From 4 until 5pm, there was a viewing of the film Riverwoods, followed by a short talk by Paul Jepson, who spoke about rewilding: what it is and how it can transform our relationship with the natural world. We are so grateful to everyone who took part.
