April Green Drinks

Your invitation to Green Drinks with Transition Farnham

Tuesday, 21st April, 7.30 pm, The Albion, Hale Rd

 Hi all,


This is to remind you that the next Transition Farnham Green Drinks will be at The Albion, 2 Hale Road, from 7.30pm, next Tuesday. Mike is still waiting for a chef, but seems he’s happy for anyone who needs to eat bringing in a pizza. As usual he’s reserving us a large table.

TTF Energy Group: this is a new initiative led by Tom. The aim of the group is to model an energy descent plan as a reference for the Town Council’s Neighbourhood Development Plan. The initial exploratory scoping meeting of the Energy Group was held last Tuesday. We look forward to hearing from Tom what this meeting achieved. There is a post at https://transitionfarnham.wordpress.com/noticeboard/ where you can access supporting web links.


New initiative: Farnham Eco-cinema. This looks feasible, so far, and I will give an update on the stakeholders interested in the project, a proposed venue, funding resources and technical support. Our inspiration is the Transition Chichester Eco-cinema, see http://www.transitionchichester.org/?q=node/347  Developing the theme of community-university collaboration, our next step will be exploring a concept definition of eco-cinema appropriate for this context. If you are interested in this initiative, please comment on the website where you will find this email posted.


Repair Café:  Another successful session was held last Saturday, 11th April, 10.00 – 12.30, at the URC Main Hall, South St. Despite falling masonry from the tower, access was not impaired! A good turn out of volunteer “fixers” ensured that everyone who came (36 people attended) could “share the repair”.  Martin was happy collecting more data; this is our fourth full scale session and some analysis has already been achieved. Please visit our Facebook page for the latest posting and photos. Radio 4 came and interviewed us, so should be on air soon! Next FRC is Saturday 9th May: same time/place every second Saturday of the month.


Farnham Hoppers : Well timed planting at the beginning of March and the rapid arrival of spring sunshine has brought the hops on very well. Most Hoppers are reporting a good number bine shoots already. A fresh supply of hop poles will be available at the end of the month. Our brewer is asking if we can supply dried hops this year.  A new challenge!


TTF Constitution: If we haven’t got one, we’re going to need one for grant applications and partnering with third parties in project collaboration. This means a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. Please come along on Tuesday to support this.


Kind regards,
