Transition Belper’s Green Exchange and the Repair Café are this Saturday (25th Jan) 10am – 1pm.
A place to meet other green-minded folks from your community, as well as find out about the activities of Transition Belper. The aim of this monthly event is for people to bring and swap any surplus or unwanted items they have, such as garden produce, seeds, books, children’s shoes etc – each month we try to have a different theme so look out for details. If you have an idea and would like to organise it, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The idea of the Repair Café is to mend and repair items that would otherwise be thrown away. Please see the Facebook page for details of what can be repaired. If you are a ‘fixer’ and have some time and skills to spare you can volunteer through the Facebook page – or contact the Repair Café by email.
As usual, there will be light refreshments of tea, coffee and cakes (donations welcome!) and a Tetra Pak collection (bring along your rinsed out cartons to be taken for recycling by volunteers, as the kerbside collection does not take them).
Who are Transition Belper?
Transition Belper are a group of local people who, as part of the wider Transition Network movement (transitionnetwork.org), are exploring how to reimagine and rebuild our world at this unprecedented time of global crisis – ‘transitioning’ towards a greener future.
The activities and events that we initiate and support are aimed at reducing our impact on the planet and our individual and community carbon footprint.
Founded in 2009, Transition Belper is made up of people of all ages and backgrounds. It’s not a political group, or a campaigning group. What brings us together is a shared desire for action and education for the benefit of our local community and our planet.
So instead of worrying about the future of the planet, get involved and make a difference!
