What’s On in December

Fix-It Monthly Session – December

It’s Back! Our Newlands fix – it mend it Monthly session. Come Join Us.

How great will it be to be able to use those things in the back of the cupboard!

When: Thursday December 5, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Where: 3 McGowan Ave, Preston

We will start as a lounge room event & then see if it moves to a different venue.

Transition Streets: Let’s talk, imagine, and connect over the better future possibilities in our neighbourhoods!

A workshop to explore the Transition Streets method of bringing neighbourhoods together.

The Transition movement (originally called Transition Towns) began in the UK over a decade ago. There are now hundreds of Transition groups around the globe, exploring local strategies for building low carbon, resilient communities able to respond to the challenges of climate change, resource depletion and environmental degradation.

Transition Streets encourages us to develop relationships within our immediate neighbourhood that will help us explore and respond to some of the significant environmental challenges before us. Whilst we face an uncertain future, we also have the opportunity to think about the type of community we want to live in and to start creating that vision now, with cooperation and creativity.

When? Saturday 23rd November, 2:00 – 4:30
Where? Newlands Neighbourhood House
Cost? Gold coin donation
Afternoon tea provided
Children welcome
Register to attend by e-mailing ecoze@mmnet.com.au

We look forward to seeing you there.
