Transition New Mills aim to put on a number of events each year. Proposed and past events are outlined below. Please also visit the Events Page of our Facebook page for information on events: www.facebook.com/TransitionNewMills/events and sign up to the blog.
Café Transition is a place where ideas to facilitate transition to a more sustainable world can be explored in a relaxed and friendly environment. Café Transition aims to listen, learn, discuss…then do! The events are roughly every 4-6 weeks, and have been held at the Torrs Butterfly House Café at 8pm on a Thursday following the Food Hub. Check out forthcoming events on the Café Transition Facebook page.
Previous Café Transition events have included:
- Extinction Rebellion High Peak: Climate change/Heading for extinction & what to do
- All That Waste: guidance on how waste and recycling is managed locally,Rethink Plastic High Peak pointing the way to reducing our waste, and New Mills Litterpick Party describing their work and introducing the New Mills Spring Clean.
- People Powered Retrofit: improving comfort and lowering carbon in existing housing, with a focus on local resources from Manchester’s Carbon Coop project, and Eco-Retrofit to a house in New Mills.
NEW: Bring & Share
We’re intending to trial a new series of social events
- Supporters of Transition New Mills, as well as anyone else who wants to come along, get together informally to have a chat and discuss possible projects in more detail. The event is an informal way of learning more about Transition New Mills, to discuss ideas and meet like-minded people. Everyone is welcome.
- Details of when and where Bring & Share will take place are advertised on our Facebook Page (see above) and e-mailed to those on our e-mailing list (e-mail us on email@example.com if you want to be included on our e-mailing list)
The Himalayan balsam bashing season is under way – see our Facebook page for organised events between May and September.
