Transition Sherwood held its 4th Annual General Meeting on 18th September, reporting on the year's activities, linked with excerpts from the inspiring In Transition 2.0 movie, and followed by a whirlwind World Cafe style visioning session - plus some home made cakes and plums from the community garden!
Transition Sherwood will be holding it's Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 18th September, from 7.30 - 9pm, at Sherwood Methodist Church, Mansfield Road. Nottingham, NG5 2EN. We are planning to show extracts of the film 'In Transition 2', report on the year's activities, and do some visioning about a low carbon future for Sherwood.
The Methodist Church is on the corner of Mansfield Rd and Devon Drive, opposite the Chestnut Pub. Nottingham City Transport Lime and Purple Line Buses past the door, level access into and in the building, and English subtitles for the film.
The council have invited Sherwood residents to comment by 5th September on proposals for a 20pmh scheme covering all of Sherwood except for Mansfield Rd, Hucknall Rd and Sherwood Rise/Nottingham Road.
The current proposals are drawn up from responses to the questionnaire and consultations at public events earlier in the year. Local Councillor and Transport Spokesperson Jane Urquhart came to the Sherwood Bike Group in July to discuss the proposals.
If you'd like to show support or suggest changes, contact Nottingham City Council road safety office on 0115 8765225 or email email@example.com - and do it before Wednesday!
Transition Sherwood is a group of local people coming together to help our communities become less dependent on fossil fuels, become more resilient, and reduce our impact on the environment. The group started in 2008, with an active group initiating a range of events and projects. This evolved into a smaller group concentrating on two community gardens from 2015.
Updates about local community and environmental events, and national and international climate change and environmental issues are currently shared mainly via our Facebook page.
Transition Sherwood is very pleased to be a member of the Nottingham Growing Network in 2016-17, with funding from the People's Postcode Lottery supporting sharing of skills and resources around a network of growing projects.
