Wednesday 14th December: Transition winter social - all welcome

Six Bells pub, 11 Covent Garden (off Mill Road) CB1 2HS 19:00
Time for winter cheer, time to celebrate the year! The Transition winter social is a time to get together with old friends and meet new ones. We'll be in the back room, with plenty of space for everyone; come along any time from 7pm. Seasonal snacks to share are very welcome! The Six Bells, our usual venue for the winter social, won Community Pub of the Year in 2014. Check their website for more info.

Sunday 18th December: Support our Lush charity pot party

Lush (Lion Yard) 11:00-17:00 add to google calendar
On Sunday 18th December you can buy hand made cosmetics from Lush and support Transition Cambridge at the same time. Lush have invited us to run a 'charity pot' party in their shop. That means they will donate to us all the revenue (minus tax) from selling 'charity pots' of lotion on that day. We will have a small stall as well so that we can chat with customers and hand out leaflets - we have prepared a flyer with tips for a sustainable holiday season. Do drop in and say hello.

Last year Lush raised £4.3 million through their charity pot scheme (Charity Pot raises £4.3 million). We are delighted that they have chosen us to take part this year. Thanks!

Monday 19th December: Cropshare winter social

Haymakers pub, 54 High Street, Chesterton CB4 1NG 19:00
No farm days in December, so Cropshare and friends are getting together in the pub! All welcome. They say 'We'll be the shifty looking types in the corner with the slightly muddy boots.' The Haymakers is a friendly pub which has good food (including vegan pizza) and Milton Brewery beer. More info here
