We’ve a pretty busy calendar for the next few weeks, with some events/meetings being run by Transition Loughborough members and some more that others are arranging that might interest Transition Loughborough followers.
Starting with the latter category, on Monday 2nd March at 7pm there will be a showing of the film “Voices of Transition” in the Purple Sofa Lounge, Herbert Manzoni Building, Loughborough University. For those not familiar with the University campus, Herbert Manzoni is a low grey building on the left hand side as you drive up the hill from the Epinal Way entrance on University Road in the middle of the campus. The film is part of a larger ‘Environment and Ethics Week‘ being held on campus, which also has lots of free events that may interest you.
Next we have a joint event, again on the University campus, but this time run by the LAGS student garden folk. This is a work shop on seed sowing and bed preparation, so is perfect for those of you contemplating “growing your own” this year. It is taking place on Saturday 7th March from 1pm to 3pm at the LAGS garden. This is located at the rear of Car Park 5 on the campus, near to the Spinney Hill Drive entrance to campus. The workshop will see Andy, our local expert gardener, leading people through seed sowing techniques and showing you how to get the ground ready for crops to be sown and planted. Its FREE, and all are welcome to attend.
The following week sees the Transition Loughborough General Meeting take place on Tuesday 10th March. This is in the Beale Room in Rosebery St Peter’s Community Centre on Storer Road, starting at 7pm. We’ll have a quick summary of activities from each group (energy, food & gardens and transport), agreeing on the final constitution and looking at what we can do to move Transition Loughborough forward in the next year.
A couple of days after the General Meeting, we’ll have moved over to Fearon Hall community centre for a talk by Gillian Squires on the history and uses of the medicinal house plant plant Aloe Vera. This starts on Thursday 12th March at 7pm in the main hall in Fearon Hall.
So, plenty to keep us all occupied for the next few weeks. Hopefully we’ll see you at one or more of these!
