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

NEW WEB DESIGN

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 hope you like it! We are still implementing it so several pages remain to be updated (get in touch if you'd like to help with this). Please let us know what you think. 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!

Wildlife Wanderings in Clare Wood

Here is a lovely blog post by Jade Cawthray about the Wildlife Wandering last Saturday in Clare Wood, with a few photos. Thanks to everyone who came along, and hope to see you at the next one on 22nd November (more details to follow...).

Low Energy Lighting

Andrew Davis from My Green Lighting will demonstrate to us the latest in low energy lighting. Come and see the latest products and learn about some of the common pit-falls when buying low energy lights for your home. Andrew has been very well received at similar events in Girton and Barton so we know it will be a very interesting and helpful evening. There will be a 10% discount available or purchases made after the event. More info here..

Forthcoming Transition Events

Thursday 30th October: Permies in Pubs (for people interested in permaculture)

The Six Bells Pub, Covent Garden, off Mill Road, Cambridge. 19:30
A chance for all those interested in Permaculture to meet up and discuss matters permaculture related or ask questions. All welcome from beginner to expert. At this session, Dave Jackson will also tell us about the recent Permaculture Convergence. We meet in the small room just behind the main bar, and there will be one or two permaculture books on the small table to make it clear where we are.

Saturday 1st November: CropShare - Be an organic farmer for a day

Waterland Organics, Willow Farm, Lode CB25 9HF 09:30-16:30 add to google calendar
Join Transition's community farming project, CropShare, to experience life as a real organic farmer for a day. We will be having fun helping out on the farm from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and 2pm to 4.30pm, sharing a lunch and a chat in between. You can join us for the morning or afternoon session, or both. See our blog to get a flavour of what workdays are like. It will be good healthy fun, a great chance to see our local countryside, and how food is grown on a large scale. Fill in this form if you would like to take part, and we'll also help you arrange travel to the farm. Everyone is very welcome! Family friendly. More...

Saturday 1st November: Romsey Community Garden - garden day

Romsey Community Garden, on junction between Madras and Marmora Road, off Mill Road 15:00-17:00 add to google calendar
Come along to help tidy the garden up for winter and plant some onions and garlic! We'll also have a small bonfire at 5pm, and there'll be refreshments (but do bring some too if you can). Romsey Community Garden is looking for a new coordinator, so get in touch if you live nearby and would like to do this (ideally this is best shared with two or three people, and living nearby makes it much easier!). We'd also love some help with keeping the Romsey Community Garden web-site up-to-date. Thanks!
