By Dhriti Dawda –

Reading Hydro: Reading Hydro CBS is pleased to announce that following the recent reopening of our Share Offer to new investment, we have been successful in reaching our revised target of £980,000 to build and operate a twin Archimedes turbines by Caversham Weir in Reading, UK. https://hydro.readinguk.org/2020/09/14/share-offer-success/

Sustainability course: As we are still unfortunately stuck in COVID times, many have taken the opportunity of the large availability of online courses. One that is particularly interesting is Think Resilience – a course focusing on climate change and sustainability challenges. Consisting of twenty-two short videos, it is perfect to fit into busy schedules as people start going into work, or in a daily routine for those still at home. For joining the course, please send an email to davemcewen@btinternet.com.

Sustainability podcast: Listening to a podcast is a great way to learn something new, whether it is while cooking a meal or taking a walk. The “Sustainable (ish)” podcast with Jen Gale covers some interesting topics ranging from food to fashion and many things in between.

Staying healthy: As everyone has no choice but to spend most of their time indoors lately, it can be beneficial to get out in nature for some light exercise, such as taking a health walk at Dinton Pastures Country Park. They are lead by trained volunteers and can be from 1-5 miles. Contact healthwalks@wokingham.gov.uk for information.

Volunteering: There is an opportunity to volunteer near Reading, in Henley. Volunteers can be involved with looking at theoretical work for land ownership of woodlands and agriculture land around Henley. This is part of a project focusing on tree planting – for trees that have been lost to disease and storms. Contact flemings5@googlemail.com  for more information.
