Feeding People Is Easy
A few years ago I read a book that had such a very simple message you could hardly call it radical, but that message is still struggling to get through.
It cropped up in Ramsden during that period when the Wychwood Network were arranging evening talks in the village hall there. It turned out the author is a local man and he gave us a first hand account of why this message is failing to get through.
Then, lo and behold, I’m supping a pint of Hooky on a straw bail in a field near Kingham, and it comes up again. This time Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is citing it as a principal reason behind his latest tv series.
Experimental Cycle Route
An idea from the Charlbury Cycling Group for a route from Charlbury to Finstock has been taken up by the Cornbury Estate on a trial basis. See the full story here in the Witney Gazette.
The trial ends Sep 30th so if you’re interested best try it out sooner rather than later.
There are many reasons for taking a trip to Charlbury: the train station, the Rose & Crown and the Good Food Shop and Cafe are some.
We tried it on the tandem not realising there’s a kissing gate half way along the route – that was a real struggle. There’s also a short section of field which doesn’t look suitable during wet spells, but otherwise it’s a delightful alternative to the fast, hilly B4022.
Let us know what you think if you try it out.
