– How should we best engage with others about social and environmental issues?
Edible Christmas decorations: We used these recipes/instructions.
Brown Ones (Danish Christmas Sweets)
500gms rolled oats
500gms icing sugar
125gms best cocoa
2oomls approx single cream
rum and vanilla or almond essence
Blitz the oats in a blender to very fine. Mix all other ingredients together add essences to taste and knead well. Chill in the fridge for about 1/2hr. When hard, remove and cut into good size pieces and roll into long sausages and then cut into desired lengths, about 2cm or so. If you were to use plenty of sifted icing sugar they should be fine without the chilling first. Leave somewhere to dry and then keep in a tin. They will keep a week or so but taste better when fairly fresh.
Review of 2011: We got into our stride with activities and events during 2011, with an emphasis on local food-growing, composting in back yards, a campaign for more (relevant and rational) neighbourhood recycling facilities, energy reduction and community events – as well as having lots of fun, of course!
Our regular twice-monthly gardening sessions at St Clement’s Church will take a rest over the winter.
The Core Group meet on an ad hoc basis – if you’re interested in any of our ideas or projects and would like to help organise one of them, or want to put forward suggestions of your own, we would love to hear from you. Either come to our next meeting or email us.
This summer, we’ve been gardening, planning, having a tour of the allotments, having stalls at the Rowntree Park Birthday Party and Ward Committee plus doing the Funk Yard Trail!
