Samba, thrash metal and sunshine

Transition New Mills made its presence felt at the One World Festival one week ago today with our sparkly new logo, exhibition boards and copious gazebo. We spent the afternoon tanning up and having thoughtful chats with our neighbours from near and far accompanied by the varied beats of the different bands playing in the music tent.

We had a number of interesting suggestions for new Transition projects (of which more soon), gave away sponsor forms for Clock New Mills ( and made some new friends, who we’ve signed up to this blog.

Check out these photos and let us know what you thought of the day.

I wonder how many people don’t get near enough to a stall to read them, though, and whether there would be a need, in addition, for something in very big writing which says in one sentence what Transition is? I guess 50% of the event’s attendees wouldn’t have a clear idea. It might not entice them to come closer, but it would be part of the gradual extension of the message. So, then the problem is to define Transition in one phrase… 🙂
