Cropredy goes Greener!!
This year, Fairport's Cropredy Convention is teaming up with Cherwell District Council and our long-time festival contractor, Grundon Waste Management, in order to recycle as much of the litter as possible.
For some time we have been keen to reduce the environmental impact of our event and this year turned to Cherwell DC and Grundon for advice.
