Talk in Exmouth

Next week I will be down in Exmouth talking about Transition Stroud so today have started putting some stuff together - a colleague sent a link here of the article below in the Exmouth Mouth. Looking forward to spending the day down there and learning about how they are getting on.

GREEN LESSONS – how Exmouth can learn from Stroud

WHAT GREEN lessons can Exmouth learn from the environmental movers and shakers in Stroud, Gloucestershire? Find out on Monday 28 June when Philip Booth – a Green councillor on Stroud District Council, an active environmentalist and a member of Transition Town Stroud – gives a talk in Exmouth.

A former social worker and currently working with people with mental health needs, Philip is passionate about tackling rising fuel poverty, energy security and climate change. In his work with TTS, he has taken a leading role in many local projects, including setting up new allotments, a wood fuel project in a local wood and arranged a successful Eco Renovation Open Homes Weekend in the Stroud area. He also writes his own green blog, www.ruscombegreen.blogspot.com

Local green group Transition Town Exmouth have invited Philip to give his talk, which is at the Telfer Suite, Exmouth Community College (Gipsy Lane site) on Monday 28 June, 7.30-8.15pm. Admission is £3 and includes tea and biscuits. More information from cc.ttexmouth@btinternet.com or 0777 7670473.

After Philip's talk, TTE will hold its annual general meeting. For more about TTE, go to Transition Town Exmouth
