Faced with uncertain energy prices and climate change, our response is to build a stronger, more versatile community – a community with the capacity to adapt to whatever happens and where we can be happy and healthy.

We meet up online monthly to discuss a book with an environmental theme we have read over the previous month. Come along and have a chat, there's no need to have finished the book as our discussions lead in lots of different directions. It's informal and friendly and we'd love to see you there. On Tuesday March 21st at 7 pm we'll be discussing "Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice" by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha. "In this collection of essays, Lambda Literary Award-winning writer and long-time activist and performance artist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha explores the politics and realities of disability justice. Care Work is a mapping of access as radical love, a celebration of the work that sick and disabled queer/people of color are doing to find each other and to build power and community, and a tool kit for everyone who wants to build radically resilient, sustainable communities of liberation where no one is left behind. Powerful and passionate, Care Work is a crucial and necessary call to arms." We meet online. Book through Eventbrite (we'll then send you a zoom link). Any questions? Please get in touch with Meg.

Are you thinking of making some changes in your home but you are not sure what is the best approach? More heads are better than one. Between us the Energy Group has extensive experience in insulation, windows, renewable energy, batteries, etc. So please come and ask. Also if you have experience from your own project that you think others could learn from - do come and share.
This meeting is by zoom only.
All welcome. Please let ask Nicola for the zoom link. More...

An important part of our response to climate change is to contribute as little as possible to it, and a large part of that is weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. The energy group aims to do whatever we can to save energy and to generate renewable energy to replace fossil fuels .
Over the years we have distilled a lot of online advice about this which you can use and learn from. There tips on things you can do at home, insulation, renewable energy like heat pumps and wood stoves and, since climate change is going to bring us warmer weather, on how to keep cool. Look at our homepage for details of the next meeting or get in touch.
We are looking for help with a few things at the moment, including gardening (various opportunities depending which community garden you live nearest to), graphic design (we'd like to make some nice posters to advertise our events), keeping the events part of the TC website up-to-date, running cafe or pub nights, and creating our fortnightly newsletter. We're also open to whatever you might like to bring or do. Please get in touch if you'd like to get involved! Contact Anna here.

A new miniature community garden is being created, right near the middle of town, and we're looking for a few people to help look after it. This will probably involve going along regularly to weed and water and just to check everything is OK. If you'd like to be part of this, please get in touch with Anna. More details coming soon...

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. You can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Thank you!
Are you a budding photographer, journalist or event coordinator? Have a few hours to help out and meet great people like you? We always have opportunities for you to get involved over here on our volunteering page.
