The Crystal Palace Transition Town group is inviting residents from near and far to join them tonight for their annual meeting and celebration tonight at The Salvation Army Building, 58-60 Westow Street, SE19 3AF from 7.30pm.
In the last 12 months, CPTT’s projects have seen five local community food growing sites, including the prize-winning “Edible Garden” in Westow Park; the “Bugs Club” for Kids; Palace Pick-Ups: our community clean-ups; Palace Pints; Palace Preserves; Patchwork Farm; Palace Power, our community solar energy project; our “Local and Fair” group supporting Fairtrade and local businesses; our new transport group.
And it does not stop there. From this Saturday, May 11, there will be a weekly Crystal Palace Food Market, which will launch on Saturday May 11. The brainchild of CPTT steering group member Karen Jones, it promises to have at least a dozen food stalls of hand-picked ethically sourced food of the highest standards but within a price range that competes with the local supermarkets.
As well as more news and announcements aabout the CPTT’s plans for the coming year, the programme for tonight’s celebration meeting includes a short presentation by Sue Sheehan, a leading figure in Brixton Transition Town.
“All are very welcome to attend,” Hathaway said.
