– our pilot project is going well. The first group has met twice, and are well into the project. They have also been asking a lot of questions, so we have tried to answer them on a new F.A.Q. page on our website. If you have questions about the project, email Transition Together-Blewbury. We have recruited a second group, and are arranging their first meeting for July.
– We have been looking for further funding for the Blewbury Transition Together Project for some time, and at last we have a sponsor for some of our expenses: Didcot Power Station has given us a grant that covers both publicity and extra equipment we need.
We are also grateful to DC Lighting for supplying the low energy light bulbs for our light bulb library. We still need to raise funding for printing more work books, but we are on our way at last.
