Thanks to everyone who came along to our first Restart Party on Tuesday 30 Sept! Here are a few photos, and here's the TV clip about it, made by Stuart Leithes for Anglia News (shown last Thursday). A big thank you to the Centre for Computing History for hosting it and the Restart Project for the idea and coming along to support us


This is our new web-site, with a new design by Anna Williams and Clara Todd, programmed into pmwiki by Clara Todd, and set up by Nicola Terry using pmwiki with added functionality for the events management system.

We'd love to hear if you like it, as well as any bugs you find, or suggestions for improvement. Many thanks to Anna, Clara and Nicola for all their hard work!

Bakers rise up!

An incredibly exciting community bakery prospect has come up north of the river, with an opportunity to lease an existing, established bakery from the council. It has beautiful big ovens which could be for cakes, flat breads or pizzas as well as traditional loaves and there are lots of regulars who are missing their fresh local bread. Transition wants to put together a project which will grow this existing bakery into something really special with the hope that in future this could become ... more here

Wednesday 22nd October: Not yet time for a community bakery...

82 Akeman Street, Cambridge, CB4 3HG 19:30-21:30 add to google calendar
Following several months of hard work by some very dedicated people, we've reached the conclusion that the time is not yet right to set up a community bakery in Cambridge. We thank everyone for their enthusiasm, ideas and offers of help! Unfortunately, there were still some big pieces missing, without which we didn't feel we could go ahead because the risk was too high. We had planned a meeting this Wednesday, and we will still meet then, but we will make it a little party to celebrate all that we've done so far, and to officially release this phase of the project for now (please let us know if you intend to come). However, the idea for a community bakery in Cambridge is still out there, and we hope that one day it will come to fruition! If you would like to take a lead on taking it to the next level, get in touch and we can brief you about where we got up to before we felt we had to make this decision. Once again, a big thank you to everyone who's been involved so far! And Cambake will continue to bake for fairs around Cambridge, and continues to welcome bakers - see the Cambake website here.

Thursday 23rd October: Admin group meeting

CB2 Cafe (upstairs), Norfolk Street 19:30-21:00 add to google calendar
If you'd like to help with the various admin tasks that keep Transition Cambridge running, please come along to this meeting, where we'll discuss ideas about how to keep everything going smoothly. There are also various tasks that need doing but for which you wouldn't need to come to meetings. Please get in touch if you'd like to help. A big thank you to everyone who has volunteered so far! (Sorry for the clash with the energy group meeting on biochar - that should take preference as there'll be plenty more admin meetings to attend!)

Saturday 25th October: Wildlife Wanderings - Clare Wood

Clare Wood, off Brooklands Avenue 14:15-16:00 add to google calendar

Join us for our first Autumn walk of 2014. We will be taking a casual wander through Clare Wood, with the aim of looking out for signs of fungi and other signs of Autumn. Wildlife wanderings is a friendly and informal gathering of local people who want to get to know their local green spaces better. All are welcome, including families. Please bring along warm clothing, sturdy footwear and a bottle of water. Meeting Point: on Trumpington Road, in front of Brooklands Lodge (type 'Brooklands Lodge, Cambridge' into Google maps to find location - it's right near the junction with Brooklands Avenue). Time: 2.15pm for a 2.30pm start. Contact Jade for more information.
