Oakley Greening Campaign

Greening Campaign Greening Campaign

Thank you to everybody who visited our stall at the OCA Front Garden Fayre in July. We were really grateful for your support to vote for your 2 favourite Challenges to save carbon emissions.  Cards printed with the top 8 favourites will be popped through your letterboxes early this month. 

We look forward to your ongoing support to select and tick 5, and to put these into practice straightaway.  Please place the cards in a front window clearly visible for us to count 6 – 10 September.  Your total village contributions will be calculated to give Oakley’s overall carbon emission savings. We will announce these, together with the cost savings to yourselves during our Green Week 2 - 10 October.

Even if you didn’t vote originally, please join in the Greening Campaign now.  Every small contribution adds to the whole.  If everybody joins in, the results will be amazing! Please give your full support.  Many thanks. 

'The climate crisis is REAL: How can you contribute to the national campaign on reaching net-zero carbon? If we reduce our carbon footprints, BE POSITIVE AND WORK TOGETHER, we can build a better future for present and future generations? 

By joining the Oakley Greening Campaign, taking small steps, encouraging others, keeping behavioural changes simple, making financial savings, we WILL achieve successful results.

The more who contribute to the Campaign, the more carbon we will save as a village. Please join in! It will be great to have your support.
