Transition Southampton started in 2008 and has achieved a huge amount in that time. It has been run by a small group of ever-changing individuals, all committed to the goals and values of sustainable living. This year, they find themselves without enough core members to carry on. They need to look at their own sustainability.

All are invited to a meeting to discuss and begin the formation of a Winchester District sustainable food partnership. Seb Mayfield, the organiser, says:

WinACC will be the charity collecting the stall holders' fees at the Cattle Market car boot sale (on the corner of Andover Road and Worthy Lane, Winchester SO23 7AB) on Sunday 30 April.

So if you are thinking of having car boot sale this spring, please do it then.

We will also have a stall. So if you aren't, please give us your stuff for us to sell. Email events@winacc.org.uk or phone the office on 01962 827083 if you have items to donate.

Allotment - under the grass there are raspberries!

Come and see our new community allotment and see how you can get involved.  Our aim is to help each other learn about growing seasonal foods, reducing our food miles, with the added benefit of being able to eat what we grow.
