So far our agenda for this meeting includes discussions about forthcoming events for the year (especially h.Energy and Spring Greens); developing means of sharing group resources; webspace for the HiT Alliance; and Transition Town attitudes to the development of paid roles.

Cae Poeth nature reserve

Please come join us for a winter weekend up at Cae Poeth Nature Reserve anytime between 10 - 4 on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, 21/22/23 January.

On the Friday we're pleased to have Adam working with us, starting off work on the fence to partition off part of the lake surround. This is being done for human safety reasons as well as to minimise disturbance of nature around the lake.  Adam will be showing us how to use on-site (some coppised) materials to build three different types of fence - deadhedge, willow and rustic.  We hope to get the fence completed by the end of the weekend, as well as continuing with ongoing maintenance work/nature surveys on the site. Of course, we will also spend time enjoying the warmth of the fire and many tea/coffee opportunities!

For more information please contact me on 01654 702993 / 07757 211059, or email me back with any queries.
