Transition Circle West is open to anyone living in the west of Norwich who is interested in living a low carbon life. The group meets twice monthly in each others houses. Meetings always involve a bring and share meal and then go onto the theme for the night, which can be anything from low carbon holidays to energy in the home, from growing your own to natural remedies. This year we also plan to have some practical meetings on topics such as foraging and bicycle maintenance. Part of what the group does is share stories and experiences of how each of us lives, what is working, what is difficult, real lives making real changes. It is lovely to share food and stories with others who are on the same path as you.
The initial idea was to form neighbourhood groups - as each group attracts new members and grows too large to fit in a living room - it splits into two. However, we tried this and it is difficult to split it at the right place and keep the momentum of numbers, so for meantime we have decided to go for a more active group, meeting more regularly.
If you would like to join our friendly group then get in touch with Helen Pallett at email@example.com
