April’s Green Drinks

This month’s TTB’s Green Drinks saw some lively discussions and updates on Thursday (20th April). Headlines below:

– Celebration of the previous night’s sell-out showing of ‘Demain’. Much for us all do now to make the most of the inspirational messages of the film and hopefully encourage and support more showings to different groups in the coming months.  Anyone wanting to get involved in future showings then get in touch with us at TTB.
– TTB Waste Project update – local café survey underway researching take-away cups as part of our Compostable Cups Campaign. You can take part using the online survey here: http://transitionberkhamsted.org.uk/cup-survey/; planning underway to expand our community events recycling project following our successful pilot at Berkofest 2016 … watch this space for more updates!
– two local projects underway focusing on historic orchards – how can TTB get involved? Suggestions: making use of the Community Orchard; plotting historic orchards/trees through the town; linking up residents with ‘shared orchards’ in their gardens.
– David Gauke due to visit the TTB / Ashlyns School solar project at the school Friday 28th April.   A great chance to celebrate the new initiative and to raise questions about the government’s tax changes affecting solar power with our local MP.
– TTB is hosting a Regional Gathering being led by the Transition Network in May.  The event will bring together leaders from a wide range of TTs to discuss challenges and opportunities for the future.
– TTB has been invited to take part in the Climate Coalition ‘Week of Action’ in July. The focus is for communities to raise key environmental issues with their local MPs. Find out more here:  https://www.weekofaction.org.uk/

– TTB Steering Group will be meeting soon to discuss these and other issues, as well as to plan for the AGM scheduled for June.
– and finally … whatever your political leanings … do take the opportunity over the next few weeks of political campaigning to highlight the importance of keeping positive environmental action at the centre of decision making and planning for our local community. 

Come and find about more about these and more at our next Green Drinks at The Old Mill on Thursday 18th May.
