Can you bake bread? Knit simple things? Make paper plant pots? Mend a hole in a pipe? Service your bike? Sew a patch or make a quilt?
Come along and have a go at some of the above to save money, develop skills, and have fun too.
We want people to work as a community, to do more to be sustainable in all sorts of ways, and to reuse rather than throw away. It’s been a challenge to think of what simple things we’d like to know and to find people who might share them on a Saturday morning, but we know people across Wilmslow, and Handforth, might appreciate the chance. Most of us seem to fail to ride that rusty bike parked outside, would love to reuse some old fabric, or learn to make something instead of buying a cheap but not good ready meal. If this works, watch out Wilmslow!
There will be a small charge – £2 for coffee, biscuits, and all the above activities, free for children with parent.
We asked the Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner candidates for their views on 20′s Plenty. See their responses here.
Meeting organised by Transition Wilmslow to explore the natural, cultural and perceptual landscape of Wilmslow, Handforth and Alderley Edge
Talk by Environmental Consultancy, Countryscape
7.30pm, Tuesday 21st August
The landscape of the town and surroundings of Wilmslow has been shaped by people interacting with the environment. The landscape is more than the physical surroundings; memories and experiences shape the sense of place.
This meeting will introduce techniques and information that can be used to understand how the landscape has been shaped and how the community values it. Deeper understanding of landscape will help to inform sustainable plans for the future.
Jonathan Porter, a landscape ecologist from Manchester-based Countryscape, will give a short talk. He will introduce landscape assessment and practical tools that can be used by the community to understand and celebrate local distinctiveness. He will demonstrate freely available information and maps that can be used to understand the natural and cultural landscape.
The meeting will include open discussion and opportunities to look at landscape maps and publications.
