Charlton Kings Police Point Drop-in in June

The Police are one of the partners of the Parish Council and share our aims of making Charlton Kings a safe place to live and work. The Police will be using the Conference Room as a Police Point from 11am – 12pm, one day a month.

The Police Point provides a drop-in opportunity for anyone to come and speak to the Police with questions or concerns. The aim of the Police Point is to improve access to the Police and maintain the two-way communication with the Community. These conversations will assist local Police in identifying potential crime and disorder problems in the Parish and setting area priorities, as well as forwarding information to other services where necessary.

This is not meant to replace a Police Station but is a tool that facilitates a face-to-face contact for people who want to speak to a local Police Officer.

The Police Point will be open from 11am – 12pm on the following dates subject to Police Officer availability:

  • Friday 9th June
  • Wednesday 12th July
  • Friday 11th August
  • Thursday 21st September
  • Thursday 12th October
  • Friday 3rd November
  • Wednesday 6th December

Tibico Fermentary: A Talk and Tasting Session

Tibico Fermentary: A Talk and Tasting Session

Wed, 28 Jun 2023 19:00

In this interactive event, William Shotton, owner and creator of Tibico Fermentary, will talk about his passion for fermentation, how he came to start Tibico, and the health benefits associated with fermented food and drink.

A life-changing health crisis motivated him to change his career and assess his lifestyle, leading him to an exploration of the impact that gut health has on our bodies, health and wellbeing.

He went on to study Functional Nutrition at Cornell University in the USA and changed to a 95% plant based diet. Through experimentation in fermentation and the power of gut bacteria, William recovered his health in 9 months.

There will be lots of tasters to sample, and he will answer any questions you have about them, and about how the microbiome affects our health.

You can book this event for free through Eventbrite.

Ecolinguistics: Communicating Climate Change

Ecolinguistics: Communicating Climate Change

Thu, 29 Jun 2023 19:30

How do we communicate climate change, and get people involved in meeting the challenges and spotting the opportunities?

"Stories are the secret reservoir of values: change the stories that individuals or nations live by and you change the individuals and nations themselves." Ben Okri

The language we use, especially how we refer to the natural environment (plants, animals, nature, weather) can influence our behaviour and how we see ourselves in relation to nature and the climate.

Arran is a Professor of Ecological Linguistics at Gloucestershire University and author of 'Ecolinguistics: Language, ecology and the stories we live by'. In this session he will explore some of the stories that underpin our unequal and unsustainable industrial civilisation. This includes stories of unlimited economic growth, nature as a resource and meat as a symbol of masculine identity. He will then explore inspirational new stories to live by from nature writing and Japanese haiku and animation.


His research and teaching examines how language encodes the stories we live by, and shapes how we see ourselves and our relationship with other animals and the earth. This involves linguistic analysis of a wide range of discourses, from advertising which encourages people to buy unnecessary and ecologically damaging products, to the inspirational language of nature writing.

He is founder of the International Ecolinguistics Association, which has more than 650 members, and has been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship for excellence in teaching.
