Our friends at Trust links kindly loaned us their wonderful hall and gardens again this year for our annual celebration of the old year and welcoming of the new year.
With around 25 people it was a lucky Fi brought her nifty new usb fan powered bbq to grill some lovely veggies to complement the other great dishes people brought. They were awesome btw. Sorry for lack off photos of the food, we were too engrossed in the eating!
A great and useful activity on the day was mulching Christmas trees for ericaceous compost and a novel idea Eleanor wanted to try, making whisks from the tops which looked so therapeutic to make alone. It was all a nice excuse to get outside in the fresh air, oh and the pine aroma!
How to put your dreams and aspirations into a crafty collage to keep us inspired and focused through the year. Vision boards Ago!
After great events like this all you want to do is have social gatherings like this every week, one for my vision board! What more do we need than friends old and new, food and nature.
Look forward to seeing you on the ever growing Transition community allotment this year. If you want to find out more about repairing house hold items, whilst getting together with community minded people over tea and cake you may like to get involved in Southmenders next repair cafe 1st Feb
Thanks again to Matt at Trustlinks for hosting this event in the wonderful Growing together Westcliff site.
