Transition Tattenhall has now become a Community Benefit Society, which means that a formal first General Meetinghas to be held to elect directors. this will take place on:
June 15th in the Barbour Institute.
There will be drinks and nibbles from 7.15-8pm, prior to the formal meeting for everyone to celebrate the progress so far.
This will be an opportunity for people to join as members, or you can find out more information on transition.tattenhall.org and sign up beforehand at transitiontattenhall.co.uk. Members decide on projects and priorities for the group. They must have a share in the Society- one share will cost £2.
Tattenhall Repair Cafe
A successful application to Spacehive and CWAC for funding has resulted in enough funds to set the project up from this July. The funds have come from various sources- 40 people pledged to back the project which meant that Cheshire West Crowd Fund and the Tattenhall Parish Council have topped up the fund to £2915, so the project is off to a healthy start. Watch this space for more information.
The Transition Roadshow
This will again be out and about at village events this summer-
at the Jubilee Village Market,
the School Fayre, 25th June,where there will be an Eco hat competition for the children, made to express climate change in any way that is creative,
the Church fete on July 2nd.
Opportunities for you to find out more about the things you can do to face climate change.
As part of the Community Resilience Plan Transition Tattenhall has set up a weekly Mindfulness/meditation session in St Albans church, Tuesdays 18.15-1900. This is a quiet peaceful place to sit in silence with others – turn up, sit down, listen, breathe ......feel better.
The Mini Meadows project
This is already underway with a number of gardens around the village setting aside small areas of their garden to just let the grass go and see what happens or to actively sow wild flower seeds. This will be an ongoing project, but the first walk around the village to see the progress will be on June 26th- watch out for little notices going up around the village and understand why someone's front garden is looking slightly different than usual. Some garden owners will be available to discuss the project and talk about the benefits of encouraging more wildflowers in your garden.
