7.30pm at the Geldart Pub on Ainsworth Street. Everyone welcome - just come along.
This is a regular sharing space where we can focus on our well-being as it relates to Transition. What's supporting us in Transition? What's hindering us? We each have time to speak and seek feedback if wanted; this is then followed by a bring-and-share dinner. This week we meet in Cherry Hinton; please contact Corrina for directions and to let her know you plan to attend
We will be meeting upstairs in the Maypole pub again (by the Park St. Car Park). The booking is provisional - if the landlord gets a big party he will bump us out so please check the Transition Cambridge website again on the day.
Our dynamic Transition café meets again. Come along to meet others interested in the transition to a low carbon Cambridge... 7:45ish to 10ish, 22a Jesus Lane. Between 8 and 9pm we will be welcoming newcomers to Transition, so come along to find out more about us.
This will be a chance to meet with people involved in Transition groups throughout East Anglia. If several people from here are interested in going, we could share transport. To book a place at the Gathering email Gary
A community meal and film in association with Emmanuel United Reformed Church on Cherry Hinton Road. The church is planning a series of evenings on themes related to sustainability and eco issues. A simple meal, with a Cuban flavour, will be served from 6.00pm (FREE - donations welcome). The film will be shown at 7.15pm (53 mins), followed by discussion for anyone wishing to stay. All welcome!
Wellbeing Group Massage Offer - One purpose of the Wellbeing Group is to support the wellbeing of those individuals actively involved with Transition. To this end, Jono Sedley, a qualified massage therapist, is kindly offering one free massage every two weeks to a Transitioner. Do you know someone who's been digging away in others' gardens? Tirelessly taken meeting minutes? Spent a Saturday on a stall? Then email their name and contact details (with their permission) to Jono along with their general times of availability. Jono can then get in touch with them to arrange a mutually convenient time. If you would like to offer your skills to benefit other Transitioners, let us know (contact Corrina)
