Crystal Palace park and tower 2“It’s been a very exciting year for us and we would like you to come along and hear about what we have been up to,” according to CPTT co-chair Sarah Hathaway.

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.
