Sustainable Kirtlington held a Footprint Fair to raise money to install energy efficiency measures in the village hall. The event involved a dog show, pony rides, quizzes, games, a raffle, demonstrations of local crafts, an art exhibition, plant, produce and cake stalls, a swap shop and a fancy dress competition. The activities were designed to include traditional village fete attractions, but with a green twist to raise awareness about climate change. They successfully raised £500 to put towards improving the energy efficiency of the village hall.
