The Transition Earlham circles are having a bit of a makeover for the New Year! We decided that we should recombine the Earlham North and South circles, not least because it is sad to divide a friendly community in two unnecessarily. To avoid the problems of too many people we are instead going to have two meetings a month and people will have to RSVP to meetings so that we know we can fit everyone in and hosts have a bit more forewarning of numbers! We have also set up a google group (noo not another one!) to make communication easier.
We have come up with an exciting list of possible meeting topics ranging from bike maintenance and foraging to household warmth and natural remedies. At our first meeting of the new year we shared a lovely meal and discussed setting up a resource-sharing library amongst the group members, including items from garden chairs, to travel cots, and even knitting lessons!
February's Circle meetings will be held on 8th and 23rd February. On the 8th February we are having a textiles skills-sharing session, where we will bring along our current knitting or sewing projects, share new skills, and give each other tips and a hand with difficult projects. The 23rd February will be an ethical and green holidays discussion, where we will discuss the ethics of different kinds of holidays and share tips about how to make our tourism more sustainable.
If you are interested in coming to either of these meetings then please let Helen know (email@example.com)
