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.

Empty Common Community Garden 10:30-12:30 add to google calendar
ECCG is a magical meeting place for you and your friends, close to the centre of Cambridge. Enjoy chatting as you garden and relax. We meet as a group on Sunday mornings from 10.30 am to 12.30 or later but people can come individually or in groups whenever they like. We are just completing our 'Heads, Hearts and Hands' hut where we can learn, bond and do things together and have tea and cake too. Come and enjoy the space! More...

Six Bells Pub (back rooms), 11 Covent Garden, Cambridge, CB1 2HS 19:30-23:00 add to google calendar
A chance to meet, catch up and celebrate! Whether you're already involved in Transition Cambridge's activities, or would like to know more about what we do, you'll be very welcome at our Christmas gathering. We'll be in the back room of the pub (come on through - there'll be a pub quiz happening at the front of the pub). For those who'd rather meet outdoors, we're planning a walk between Christmas and New Year, and gathering at Empty Common Community Garden in January - more details to follow.

Downing Place United Reform Church CB2 3EL 19:30-21:30 add to google calendar
It is the season for having fun - so no special topic for the December meeting but an informal social - in person! You are welcome to bring finger food or drink to share. There will be mulled wine. Party hats are optional. Eco charades is proposed but will not be compulsory. Ideas for next year would be very welcome.
Please note the slightly earlier time - I hope this makes it easier for those of you coming from out of town but do not feel obliged to be on time.
Thanks to Margaret for suggesting and arranging the venue. Donations to cover the cost would be nice but your presence is more important - All welcome. 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 have been contacted about looking after a very small growing space (mostly pots) near the Milton Road/Highworth Avenue roundabout. The area is frequented by elderly people who aren't very mobile and would enjoy seeing some thriving plants. If you are a keen gardener and live near there, please get in touch - thanks!

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!
