Transition Wilmslow is an amazing group of dynamic people trying to do a bit to save the planet in all sorts of ways.

Whilst I was busy teaching kids about picking tomatoes and cucumbers at our Community Market Garden at Oakenclough this week, someone else was busy lining groups up to do exciting things on climate action at the street festival for our Festival of Nature in September, another was scanning Wilmslow and area planning applications to try and get them to be environmentally responsible, and some were hard at work trying to get our constitution revised to make it acceptable as a charitable incorporated organization. So many different things go on behind the scenes, whether Tree Group or Lindow Moss, and more help is always welcomed!

Are you any good at social media? Administration? Let us know! And join an amazing group doing our bit to try and save a planet for our children. Our next meeting is 18th August at 7.30pm at the Quaker Meeting House.

We hope that we have got across the importance of roads for all users, not just those in cars. We just want safer streets for everyone; 20s plenty for us!

Community Market Garden meet ups start this month and we have a tree planting day at the Rugby Club on 28th February. Get in touch if you would like to help.

The Festival Organising Committee are planning another Festival of Nature in September this year. Join us if you would like to help.
