Reskilling/NR3: Save Christmas, Save the Planet – Saturday 28 November

As a way of building community, relearning old skills and affording Christmas we have decided to run a Green Christmas Fair at the local church hall. In Sewell ward ( part of NR3) the local transitioners (reskilling and NR3) have got together with the existing Church fete which was already green - bric-a brac, homemade jam and cakes and handmade knitwear. Already there is great excitement particularly amongst the churchgoers and the local community. We are planning a range of workshops to show you how to make your own Christmas gifts and generally having a low carbon Christmas which is about loving each other and not buying loads of stuff.

If you feel you can contribute in any way then please contact me, we need storytellers, reskillers (making gifts) and stuff to make things with. So if you have any of these skills or any old fabric, pine cones or hazel or willow twigs then please let me know. Kind regards, Helen Simpson Slapp – helenofnorwich@hotmail.com
