Welcome to Transition Marlborough

 

This year's AGM

Image

Rich Pitts was re-elected as our Chairperson and Shane Hughes from REconomy invited us to re-imagine Marlborough High Street as a shared space, where pedestrians and cyclists have priority and some of our favourite shops are integrated with 'transition-orientated' enterprises.

We came up with several great ideas, including a drop-in, high tech centre where people could learn new IT skills, an empty shop where young people could meet, a bus shelter, an electronic public information board, a rickshaw garage and an out-door area where people could learn to dance and sing. In the picture, Richard is explaining his idea for establishing a timber yard, where young people could learn wood-turning and carpentry skills, utilising wood gleaned from properly managed forests.

Practical Permaculture for Transition Training

Image The 'Low Energy Living' session was held in and around Gary's houseboat that was moored near Pewsey. Gary uses solar energy to power his boat, both for travelling up and down the canal and to charge his lap-top and mobile phone, and gleaned wood to heat his small stove. He also demonstrated his solar cooker and wind-up washing machine, while Jeremy took advantage of the occasion to boil water on his efficient rocket stove.  Since this was the last session of this year's course we all retired to the pub afterwards for a well earned lunch!
