Events with WILD ABOUT DATCHET

23rd March 11am Datchet WI Hall

We’re running this really popular event again, this time in Datchet with Wild About Datchet.

Thinking about getting a heat pump? Got lots of questions? Need to talk to an expert?

  • Do they make economic & environmental sense?
  • How can you get the best deal and outcome?
  • What’s best and are they the right thing for you?

Hear from our experts who have the answers, practical experiences, and have ‘lived’ with them? Put your questions to our specialist panel chaired by Peter Gibbs (From BBC R4 Gardeners’ Question Time and our local ‘Weather Man’). Find out if heat-pumps will work for you.

From 11:00 too 12:30 Saturday 23rd March at Datchet WI Hall.

To ask a question, book on Eventbrite

Councillor Karen Davies launches 10% challenge

2pm on 2nd March at ECO Action Hub

Come and find out more about our ‘10% Challenge’!

As part of ECO Action’s drive to help people to address our climate crisis, RBWM councillor Karen has agreed to launch and take part in ECO Action’s personal 10% (carbon reduction) challenge.

Karen will commit to:
· Measure her initial CO2 or CO2e footprint
· Commit to reducing it by 10% year on year by changes to her lifestyle
· Measure her improvement.

Why? We all realise and experience that the climate is changing. Without us all taking action our young people will experience a very different and challenging life.

This community initiative is to generate enthusiasm throughout RBWM for action, show that our Councillors care and want to make a difference.

We invite you to take our 10% Challenge. 💚

Maidenhead Seed Swap

Saturday 2nd March 2024

Join us in the ECO Action Hub on Saturday 2nd March anytime between 11:00 to 13:00 for a seed swap! Get inspired to grow your own, see great ideas and get helpful tips if you are a novice or an expert. And you don’t actually need seeds to swap… just come along and join in!

What is a Seed Swap? “A great opportunity for gardeners to organize their seed collections and get rid of the ones they don’t want. They can also use the event to pick up seeds that they do want to grow. In all, it’s a win-win for gardeners and reduces wastage and cost.
