Wildlife Wandering, 13th Feb

Meet at the Bell Language School at 10am on Saturday 13th February to come walking down to Beechwoods nature reserve. Lots of hedgerow and woodland wildlife to spot!

Transition Hub Meeting, 15th Feb

Join us from 7pm at Anna's house - contact for details - to discuss all things Transition. Everyone welcome to find out about what all the groups are up to and how you could contribute to making Cambridge a more sustainable home for all of us!

Experiments in Democracy

Thurs 3rd March, 7.30pm Unitarian Church

Four great panellists come together to discuss the future of our democratic system. Is it fit for purpose? How can we improve it to make better decisions around topics like climate change, sustainability and the future of the natural environment? Q&A and drinks follow the main event.

We're expecting a big turn out so please book your free tickets in advance. A small donation on the night would be greatly appreciated to help cover the costs of putting on this event.

This event is coorganised by 38 Degrees Cambridge, Pivotal - Cambridge Festival of Change, and Transition Cambridge.

New Water Group!

With Climate Change likely to bring increased rainfall to some parts of the world, a new action group is forming to work out how to stay dry in Cambridge. This group seeks to come up with practical solutions mitigating localised flooding.

After a successful launch at the beginning of February, there's a number of events in the pipeline including discussion groups, trips around flood prevention measures implemented in Cambridge and field trips to London to see larger more complex solutions implemented by community groups.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.

However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.

We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!

Walk to the Beechwoods nature reserve via the green lane beside Wort's Causeway. This is a Wildlife Trust reserve above the golf course and just below Wandlebury. Great for anyone who passes through Addenbrooke's hospital or the Babraham Road Park & Ride, the Beechwoods is where the chalk ridge that runs all the way from the Chilterns comes to an abrupt end as the land descends into the flatter, watery landscape towards the fens. Good for spotting hedgerow and woodland wildlife... More...
