Bringing trusted businesses and the community together
9th February 2010
Transition Southport is part of the international Transition Towns Network which promotes practical sustainable local projects to tackle the many challenges posed by climate change and the imminent decline of cheap oil.
It is proud to announce it has received a grant from the Awards for All National Lottery Fund. The grant will be used to fund resources to spread the Transition message and projects across the Southport area, and any community groups wishing to have a presentation on Transition Towns are invited to contact Chairperson, John Robottom, 01704 227802, firstname.lastname@example.org
Their first public meeting of the year takes place on Thursday 18 February, 7.30 PM, at the Friends’ Meeting House, Court Road, situated behind Southport Police Station. Admission is free.
Mike Smithson, Secretary, said ‘ Richard Heinberg deals with the issue of how we will survive in a world with fewer resources, and how society will have to prepare itself and rethink the way it lives’.
Transition Southport is also preparing a guide to locally produced food. Anyone in Southport and surrounding area who either produces local food or can recommend a local producer, please contact John Robottom. John said ‘ We want to include everyone, not just farms, so please let us know if there is someone in your neighbourhood who sells produce from home such as eggs, dairy, honey or jam, fruit or vegetables, and we will ask them if they would like to be included in the guide’.
