Rainfed Garden in Romsey

Earlier this year the new 'Learning to stay dry' group formed to address issues around flooding and excess rainfall.

One way to stop flooding from those huge summer downpours is to create rain gardens, which collect water off roofs to slow the water flows, prior to dispersing the remaining water that has not evaporated or been used by the plants.

For more ideas about sustainable drainage techniques, read this blog post.

The rain garden was at the Romsey Mill in June this year as part of the Chelsea Fringe.

Join the Energy Group!

One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.

The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.

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!

Upcoming events

Monday 1st August - Wednesday 31st: Transition Cambridge summer break!

Transition Cambridge will be on holiday during August - our usual summer break. It's been a busy year and we have lots to celebrate. Our last event before the break will be our birthday party on 31st July. During the break some groups may still have some activities and events will still appear on our website in the usual way - so you can still check back here. (If you're submitting events, the response might be a bit slower than usual.) We'll be back in September, with regular newsletters, events, opportunities to get involved and our usual mix of sustainable fun!

At the hub's monthly meeting, representatives of the groups and projects report on what they've been up to. We also make plans together to coordinate future events - and this meeting will be planning for the AGM in October. Meetings are open, so all are welcome to attend. Attending hub meetings is a good way to see how Transition Cambridge works, and to get a sense of the range of projects that we are involved with. Contact Nicola for details of the address.
