This is a preliminary notice about an event we are planning for 28 April, so that you can circulate the date for your members to put in their diaries!
On Saturday 28 April we will have a networking event and general gathering for transition groups and other green groups from around Dorset, to be held in Bridport at St Mary’s Church Hall. This is adjacent to the Bridport Community Orchard and a short talk and tour of the orchard will be included (and a picnic if the weather suits!). The main purpose of the full day event will be for groups to network and share experiences, and to think about future possible collaborations and mutual support if, as seems likely, the current funding for support through da21 ends at the end of May. So it could be a very important event for the future of transition and other green groups in Dorset, and it’s important that as many as possible attend to discuss ideas and options. The event will be free and we plan to have a professional facilitator to help make the event as productive as possible, as well as an enjoyable get-together.
The programme is still fluid at this stage, so do please let us know if you have any particular ideas about what to include. Further details and booking information will be circulated later.
