Thursday 28th July: Food Group Summer Social - bike ride & pub

Plough and Fleece, Horningsea, CB25 9JG 19:30
It's summer - which means it's the perfect time for a bike ride to a country pub! The Food Group invites you to join us for our 'traditional' summer social outing - a bike ride along the Cam, followed by food and drink at the Plough and Fleece pub in Horningsea. Meet at the Green Dragon bridge (CB4 1NZ) in Chesterton at 7.00 to cycle, or join us at the pub from 7.30. We'll be in the garden (fingers crossed for suitable weather...!). All welcome! Please RSVP by email so we can book for the right number. More info about the (community owned) pub, food and drink here.

Saturday 30th July: CropShare - Be an organic farmer for a day

Willow Farm, Lode, Cambridge, 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 on Saturdays from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and 2pm to 4.30, sharing a lunch and a chat in between. You can join us for the morning or afternoon session, or both. Click here to check which Saturdays we will be on the farm.

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.

A nearby pub, the Earl of Derby will be our rainy day back-up. Transitioners, friends and family of Transitioners- all welcome!

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

09:00
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!
