I seem to have been spending alot of time on this project over recent weeks - but have now got loads of info, leaflets, posters etc out to local press, organisations and websites - even today got the visitors feedback forms and signs to the homes printed - need to deliver them this week - anyhow interest seems strong in this project so I hope folk will get involved and it will encourage more to take energy efficiency and renewable measures.....below is the poster competition which a fellow Transition Stroud member is running....

Dear Teachers/Parents On Saturday 13th September an exhibition will be held at Randwick Village Hall as part of the Stroud Open Homes for a Sustainable Future (Download a leaflet and see more here) and we would like to invite children to take part. The purpose of this day is to encourage people to visit various homes in the Stroud local area which already have energy saving, energy generation or are heated by renewable energy. We will also have advice on grants and money off at Randwick Village Hall on 13th September.

We would like to invite children to help us to make this a truly family event by contributing posters or other art works that depict methods of saving or creating energy or other resources at home. There are many ways this is being done already; Low energy or energy saving devices, Natural light designs, Solar heat house design, Super insulation, Wind turbines etc.

We hope that children will want to contribute their creativity and in exchange the Green Shop will display the best entries at Randwick Village Hall on Saturday 13th September 2008, and award prizes to the best entries. Please note name, address and age on poster and either bring to hall on 13th September between 10.30 and 11am or send to Open Homes, 2 The Laurels, Bread Street, Ruscombe, Stroud. Maximum 2 entries per child either A3 or A4 size.
Thank you. Transition Stroud - Open Homes www.stroudopenhomes.org.uk/ For further info call Greg Dance on 01453 752068
