July 26th: Transition Turns Seven

Midsummer Common Community Orchard, Sunday 26/07/2015

Celebrate Transition Cambridge's seventh birthday with us! Bring kids, food, drink and clothes for all occasions (who know's what the weather will be like?!)

Special thanks to the Friends of Midsummer Common for creating this space and allowing us to have our picnic there!

Summer Break in August

Transition Cambridge usually takes August off, so there will be very few events/meetings and no newsletters during this time. But do keep an eye on the cropshare website for farm days and check back here as we release new events for our return in September!

Orchard Park Wildlife Wanderings, 15th August

Following the summer safari in July, we have another wildlife wandering on the horizon. Join us on Saturday 15th August from 09.00 to explore and investigate the plants and animals that live around the area. We even hope to spot some lizards basking!

We'll be meeting by the Travelodge on Chieftain Way.

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!

Volunteer vacancies

We have a couple of new opportunities over here on our volunteering page. If you want to get involved, have a volunteer opportunity you want to advertise or have heard about and want to share with the community, simply e-mail us
