Transition Redhill is about developing a stronger and more resilient community – not just in Redhill though. We like our neighbours and there are many interesting things going on around us that we can chose to support and be part of. Many people will be taking part in street parties and community events over the Jubilee weekend, hopefully you’ll all enjoy yourselves whatever you are doing.
There are other things going on around us too. Can you support the Merstham bicycle recycling project? Operating from the Hub at 28 Portland Drive, Merstham, it is a scheme that is going to use unclaimed bikes, given by Surrey Police, to help local disadvantaged and socially excluded young people.
You might also be interested in the Eden Valley Eco Fair. It will be on Saturday 22nd September, in Stangrove Park, Edenbridge. You have plenty of time to put it in your diaries – its a new event to promote sustainability and local community involvement and will include local businesses and community organisations, clubs and societies.
Have you heard all about Rio +20 United Nations conference on Sustainable Development? Fancy going, but not got the cash from a trip to Rio? How about going to the alternative Rio + 20 conference at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at University College London? its on over the weekend of 16-17 June, and run by the Campaign Against Climate Change and SOAS Development Studies Department.
Whatever you do decide to do, tell your neighbours and friends about it too, and have a good time.
