Pancake Day

Here are some photographs of residents and co-workers in Camphill Milton Keynes having pancake races on Tuesday 28th February. Pancakes are traditionally eaten on Shrove
Tuesday, which is known as "Pancake Day" in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, and "Pancake Tuesday" in Ireland and Scotland. (Shrove Tuesday is better known in the United States, France, and other countries as Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday.) Historically, pancakes were made on Shrove Tuesday so that the last of the fat or lard was used up before Lent. No meat products should be eaten during Lent.

Milton Keynes Energy Conference

On Saturday 25th February, there was the Energy Conference that happened at the Chrysalis Theatre in Camphill Milton Keynes.
This conference considered the way in which the development of the new Town of Milton Keynes led to initiatives around sustainable building design and energy efficiency, and how people might re-discover this ambition through community-led energy initiatives.
The conference opened with a focus on the past, with talks from speakers involved in championing sustainable building design architecture.
Residents and co-workers from Camphill Milton Keynes did a couple of poems about energy and also sang a song.
Then there was an overview of what is happening with community energy, followed by an inspiring speech from Bill Dunster from ZED Factory. Zedfactory specialise in the field of zero-carbon design and development.
The final part of the conference focused on current Milton Keynes projects, Wolverton Community Energy and CAPE – Community Action Platform for Energy.
