  Transition Town Bridport:

Local support for a sustainable Bridport

What's On? 

Green Drinks

Woodman's Inn, South Street, Bridport
( hopefully in the bowling alley at the back)
7 pm Thursday 25 November

A chance to meet informally and have a chat over  a drink. New members welcome.

 


Bridport Climate Forums

In person: November 23, 5.30-7.00pm
Online: November 24, 7.00-8.30pm

Consultation sessions with community organisations and networks. 

These consultation meetings are being hosted by TTB and Seeding our Future, with support and input from Bridport Town Council. The aim is to bring together local organisations and networks of all kinds to explore together how we can enable our local community to respond to the growing climate emergency, including both emissions and waste reduction, and emergency resilience.

If you are part of an organisation which has been contacted, please ensure that a representative will attend the forum; if you have not had an invitation please contact Alan Heeks or TTB admin.  This is a chance to find out and share what different Bridport groups are doing and finding ways of working together.

Bridport Climate Café: 

Thursdays November 18, December 9, 2-4pm at Soulshine Café, South Street

A climate café is an informal, supportive space where you can talk about your feelings on climate change. The group will be supported by trained volunteer facilitators: it’s a confidential space for respectful listening, whatever your views. All are welcome, including young adults from 16 up. It’s not a therapy group, and it’s not a place for discussing or planning action, important as that is. 

Free of charge, no need to book. Please arrive promptly, get yourself a hot drink, maybe some cake, and join us. No regular commitment needed, leave any time you want! 

For more about climate cafés, see this blog. For any queries, contact Alan Heeks, 07976 602787.


TTB AGM

18 November at 6.30pm

We had an excellent AGM, outlining last year's achievements (here is the chairman's report) and looking at future plans.  Sam Wilberforce stood down as chairman and Lesley Windsor took over the chair.
  • A new Edible Garden at Bridport Primary School based on Forest garden principles.
  • Fashion Revolution.  Getting ourselves off fast fashion, reducing the consumption of clothes made in sweat shops around the world from unsustainable sources of materials. Our campaign was staopped in March 2020 due to the COVID lockdown but we  still think this is a really important campaign both on human rights and on climate and environmental issues
  • Climate outreach, engaging with a wide variety of people through the climate forum and  the climate cafes. The Climate Response Initiative aims to widen the discussion beyond the usual green crowd.
  • A report from Raja Jarrah and Kit Vaughan on COP 26
  • A possible series of speakers and films, organised jointly with Bridport Quakers, meeting on a monthly basis.
  • Collaboration with Dorset Climate Action Network on Dorset Council’s climate and ecological emergency and Local Plan; and committees on Energy, Waste, Advocacy, and Transport.
  • Work with Bridport Town Council on its climate emergency and housing initiatives.
