We want your recipes!

This website now has a recipes page, but there’s only a few recipes on it! 
As we all know, lot of Brentor’s social life revolves around cooking and eating with family and friends.  The recipes on the new page have been provided by Brentor residents past and present.  No doubt some have been adapted and improved as the years pass – and they are reminders of residents past and present and of many good times around the table, as well as being household favourites. 
WE NEED LOTS MORE RECIPES!  So please email your contributions – a recipe with a small introductory text – to the editor, Colin Dawes, at .

Brentor Commons Association to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund

Brentor Commons Association has been chosen to benefit from the next year of the Co-op Local Community Fund.  The funding started on 12 November 2017 and will  run until the 27 October 2018.
How it works
Every time Co-op members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.  The Co-op will also give the Brentor Commons Association (shared with two other local causes) a share of the money they raise from sales of carrier bags.  Co-op shoppers who are Co-op members (ie  have a membership card) must first choose the Commons Association as their cause for their 1% to go to them and not the other causes – to do this click here to go to the website.
The more you shop at the Co-op, the more the Commons Association will benefit.
This is very welcome news for the Commons Association – as Government funding for conservation work becomes more difficult to win this grant will fill some of the funding gap that they are experiencing for the maintenance of our local commons.
