Stroud Eco-Renovation Open Homes
We will again be presenting our Open Homes weekend, this year on the Bank Holiday weekend of May 3rd and 4th, 2014. There will be lots of Eco-renovation to see and yo u will get a chance to talk to the home owners about what they have had done, who did it, what difference it has made. Some of the homes will have small workshops for you to pick up more information. We will also have an Installers Fair in the Stroud Sub Rooms on Saturday 26th April where you will be able to talk to lots of different installers about what is on offer locally.
FRIDAY MAY 9th Launching Jay Ramsay’s first large collection of new poetry for some years, here in Stroud at the Black Book cafe, top of the High St, at 7.30 for 8pm start. £10 on the door includes a free copy.
The book, which is 224pp, attempts to tell the transitional story of our time...also as an invitation to poetry to face what is happening in our time. It is an invitation for us all to find our greatness and courage, and not hide in being less than who we are. It is also about memory (and history), and what needs to be remembered in our soul's journey of awakening. There will be music too, and some special guests.
