I’m a big fan of the Transition Town movement, so it was great to be invited to be a part of the new Transition Town Altrincham, Hale & Bowdon. This is all a little bit south of us (we’re right on the border between Sale and Altrincham) but it’s the first Transition initiative in Trafford so how could I resist!

At the moment we’re just starting to get a core group together, and tentatively planning our first film showing, to start getting the word out. We’re hoping to piggy-back some of the great events that Action for Sustainable Living are doing locally, and our next group meeting is February 1st – full details here. If you’re concerned about the environment, climate change and peak oil, or just interested in building a stronger local community then do come along – the more the merrier!
