And on we go….

Dear Transitioners

Time for a brief update before January ends – where has the month gone?  We have our next Members’ Meeting on Tuesday, 4 February, but before that we hope the weather will be fine so we can hold our Wassail next Sunday – apologies to any intrepid members who did not receive a notice that we had to postpone last Sunday.  So, here are diary dates:-

Wassail:  3pm on Sunday 2 February at Two River Meadow – come and chase away the bad spirits and waken the fruit trees.  Bring a saucepan and wooden spoon with which to make much noise, and a mug for some hot apple juice – but this is weather dependent so please check Facebook for any last minute announcement

Transition Monmouth Members’ Meeting:  Tuesday 4 February at the Robin Hood for a prompt 7.30pm start – see agenda below
