The North West Transition conference is on in Lancaster on 12/13 July. The organisers say “We have some inspiring workshops lined up. As always with Transition Network events we say no to boring conferences, and will be embracing the diversity, wisdom, and enjoyment of each other’s company throughout the day. In the evening, we have ‘Howard Haigh and Men of The Hour‘  playing a vibrant mix of salsa, funk, and blues. On the second day of this gathering you can check out the local renewable energy company, eco houses, and community farm, travelling from place to place by electric bike or car!”

And thanks to a grant from Derbyshire County Council, we can offer a limited number of members a discount on the costs of attending. The only stipulation being that you are a member of Transition New Mills (if you’re not already, it’s very simple to join!). We hope that those who go will put to use their new-found enthusiasm, skills, connections and knowledge gained from the workshops to good effect here in New Mills.

More information on the event can be found here:

If you want to go and apply for a discount on registration, accommodation and/or travel please contact us as soon as possible, mentioning whether you have a low income. The amount we can offer each person will obviously depend on how many want to take us up on the offer but we can probably afford to be quite generous. If necessary, we’ll allocate on a first-come-first-served basis so don’t delay!
