We had a great meeting last week, outdoors, bats flying overhead, Alfie Dog and Doris Cat in attendance, all well distanced, and just so good to be together in the same space. Much of the time was spent discussing events and so, at last, we have some dates for your diaries and hope that further lockdown measures will not stop them from going ahead:-
Apple Pressing: Saturday 26 September, 10 till 2, at St James Hall, Wyesham: Bring your own washed apples or pears, and clean bottles for your juice. Please book to avoid disappointment or a long wait, by calling 07905 415871 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr Bike: A free check-up and basic repair service for your bicycle: Sunday 27 September, 10 till 2, at the Monnow Bridge Market Car Park. Cycle Training Wales will be there together with our two new bike shops – Launch and Honeysuckle Wood, Monmouth Cycling Club, and you will be able to buy refreshments from Miniyaki’s Japanese Soul Food and the Handlebar Barista
Monmouth Community Fridge: Opens on Monday 28 September redistributing nutritious food and preventing food waste in Monmouth. The Fridge is based at Bridges Community Centre, in Stable 4 – look for the orange door! We get surplus food from local businesses and make it available to everyone, for free. You are welcome to make a donation to running costs but it’s not obligatory. For up to date information see Monmouth Community Fridge Facebook page – and a call for volunteers: We need help in the evenings to collect food, take it to the Community Fridge, label, and put it into appropriate storage. Please contact email@example.com if you are able to help
Apple Pressing: Sunday 4 October, 10 till 2 at the Rockfield Park Community Centre, Cornwallis Way, Monmouth NP25 5DN: As for the Wyesham event – bring your own washed apples or pears, and clean bottles for your juice. Please book to avoid disappointment or a long wait, by calling 07905 415871 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Transition Monmouth Members’ Meeting: Tuesday 6 October, 7pm outside the front entrance of Monmouth Comprehensive School
Seed + Plant Share: Saturday 10 October, 10 till 12 outside the front entrance of Monmouth Comprehensive School, The Burgage, NP25 3DP. It’s been a year since we held our event so hopefully you have many seeds and plants – maybe produce too – to bring along and swap for something enticing – but come even if you have nothing to share – we are always happy to accept fiscal donations
We hope to see you at one or more of these events, and you will enjoy meeting again with your like-minded colleagues …..
