Vegetarian Taster -

On Friday 19 July Transition Town Christchurch is holding a ‘vegetarian taster’ at Druitt Hall from 7:30 pm to celebrate our belated summer!

A number of dishes showing the range of meat-free food will be available, and it would be great if you would like to bring your own favourite vegetarian dish to share. Small helpings will cost around 50p each to help fund the cooks.
We hope for a balmy summers evening with chairs outside the hall … but if not we shall move indoors. Bring your own drinks and chill out with friends.

FRACKING –Action needed NOW!

FRACKING –Action needed NOW!

On 29 May TTC held an event on Fracking, publicised as follows:
“Fracking is a process used to extract gas, locked in shale rocks, by injecting a mixture of chemicals, sand and water deep underground at high pressure. It poses risks to the environment, communities and climate change. Watch the Oscar nominated documentary on Fracking, “Gaslands”, showing fracking in USA-- then consider the situation in the UK.

Visit to Alan and Claire Kenny’s Garden Plot

Following the very successful evening in February when Alan and Claire Kenny talked about growing crops which suit the local environment a number of people expressed interest in seeing their plot. We have waited out this cold, wet Spring and have now arranged a visit on the evening of 26 June ! Alan and Claire will welcome all those interested at 7.30pm at 18 Lingdale Road in Southbourne and we will be able to pick their brains to improve our own growing techniques.
