Transition Loughborough joined a number of other groups at the Picnic in the Park today. This event, organised by Charnwood Arts and held in Queens Park, was a great way to meet more towns folk and talk with them about issues surrounding climate change, Peak Oil and local resilience. Luckily the rain held off and there were lots of people at the event.
Transition Loughborough had several stalls including climate change information, energy saving & generation, plant swaps and the apple press. There was an art project being run that encouraged children to help “colour in” a large globe using recycled paper. We shared the area we were located in with the Master Composters and the Hastings Ward community group.
Thanks to the various groups who lent us gazebos, tables, chairs and equipment, the volunteers who turned up on the day to staff the stalls, Charnwood Arts for inviting us to take part and everyone who came up and chatted with us!
