Transition Southampton has been very busy of late, helping with Sustainability Week, running Clean Air Southampton, Repair cafe and other projects and we haven't had the time to update our webpages. Our Facebook page and group are good places to go to find more up to date information. If anyone out there would like to help with the web page and report on our local initiative please let us know. If you would like to recieve the monthly newsletter which will tell you about events and gatherings please sign up on the right.
Heard about Transition but not sure what its all about? Why not try Transition Launch Online, which is the online version of the Transition Network's very popular face to face fundamentals course in the skills and practices of Transition. Transition Launch Online is packed with imaginative ways to delve into the practice of Transition showing you how to set up, run and grow a Transition Initiative.
We've held three 'Imagine Southampton' events now and had some amazing input from people at these meetings, putting their hearts and energy into imagining Southampton. New projects are in the process of being born as a result of these events - we'll keep you posted as the progress. You can read a blog about the first Imagine Southampton event here.
Southampton Repair Cafe is open on the first Saturday of every month (except January), from 10.30am-1.00pm at Freemantle United Reformed Church Hall, 257 Shirley Rd SO15 3HS
Upcoming dates for repair cafe at Freemantle: Saturday 5th November, 3 Dec 2016, 7 Jan 2017
Repair cafe aims to keep everyday items away from landfill, save resources, give people the opportunity to learn new skills and build community.Our volunteer repairers will tackle small portable electrical items, portable wooden furniture, items needing glueing, jewellery, and bikes - along with sewing and mending, and advice on computer operation. All this plus a cuppa and a cake! Do come along with your items for repair, or if you are unsure what you need come along and ask. In December we will also have a Christmas bazaar, so come along to buy(or sell) some goodies.
