Tuesday 20th June, 7pm Tavistock United Reformed Church, Russell St. The evening includes our AGM – a chance to take stock, affirm the vision and plan for the future. We welcome the filmmaker Bryony Stokes of Cornwall Climate Care to present and discuss lead the 30 minute documentary “Food for Thought”covering regenerative farming, climate change and nutritious local food.
Entry free, thanks to sponsorship of the film showing by local firm Wings Accountants, but donations towards wider costs appreciated, as are new membership subscriptions (only £5pa).
The #GreatBigGreenWeek is a UK wide celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. We’ll share events we’re aware of in the Tavistock area here.
An AGM with a difference: time to refocus ourselves, to begin to reimagine how Transition Tavistock can respond even more effectively and creatively to the environmental and climate emergencies. Help us create this new future by bringing your head (knowledge), heart (passion) and hands (plans). 21st June, 7pm at Tavistock United Reformed Church. Free, and open to all, but if you are not already a member, why not join up on the night (subscription £5 a year) to show your support?
We’re joining other groups in West Devon for activities in this national week drawing attention to why climate change and nature loss matter and what we can do. Summary of Tavistock events in the poster below. More events, details and booking links here.
Our Annual General Meeting, with a difference, will take place on the 11th September 2-4pm in the Lower Deck, United Reform Church, Russell St. As part of the Great Big Green Week events (18th – 26th) and COP26 we will be making moths.
As a unifying theme for Great Big Green Week in the Tamar Valley and West Devon, Art & Energy Collective, supported by Tamar Energy Community, invite groups to join in their inspiring Moths to a Flame project. This involves hosting moth-making events or mini-installations where people can hang moths they’ve made (from milk bottles – instructions here), before or during the week. The installations will be collected in plenty of time to be taken to Glasgow for a mass participation artwork of 20,000 moths, with messages to the COP26 climate summit, recorded by people making the moths.
All you need are, plastic milk bottles, scissors, and a marker pen..
Please come and join us to catch up and make moths.
Our Zoom event on 27th January covered an introduction – as we see it – to how the plan and consultation work, and some of the themes it covers. More detail on our Climate Matters page. Since then a poster summarising the plan in 8 points has been released.
Please join us in Local Matters on Sat. 18th Nov. 2017, at 14:00. We’d like to celebrateour achievements with you, and discuss how we can move forward together.
The afternoon’s event will also include our AGM.
We’ll kick off with introductions and a review of the past year, and then the floor is yours.
The formal notice of our AGM is here. If you’d like to get involved in the coming year by helping shape and supporting our future; joining the Committee or volunteering, come along on Saturday or drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
