SOCIAL OCCASIONS in December
Pre-Christmas Social – plus news from Japan’s Transition Movement
Earlier this year Ros spent two months in Japan, taking the opportunity to visit 4 Transition Towns, to see what they were up to, and to share with them what we are doing here in Leytonstone. They were very different from each other, ranging from the caldera of a volcano on Kyushu to a quirky neighbourhood of Tokyo reminiscent of Brighton. All were inspiring, and Ros met some wonderful people.
Finally, 6 months after her return, she is giving us a short illustrated talk about her experiences there and the thoughts and impressions she took away with her. Following that we’ll be sharing food, welcoming new people to Transition Leytonstone, catching up with people we haven’t seen for a while…and generally having a good time!
Date: Sunday December 14th
Venue: RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0208 556 0885 and Ros will give you the address. It’s important to know numbers, especially for the talk, as space is limited for looking at slides.
5pm: Informal, illustrated talk about Transition in Japan
7pm: Pot Luck Social. Please bring food and drink to share.
If you’re green and eco-minded and would like to meet other people with similar interests, this social gathering could be right up your street. Pop into the pub and look for the table with the green tablecloth and 3 Green Tankards sign and join the group for good company, green (or ordinary) conversations and a drink (alcoholic or not).
Date: Monday December 15th
Venue: The Walnut Tree Pub, 857-861 High Road Leytonstone, E11 1HH
Time: 8pm till late
Carol Singing by the Stall
No need to worry about your lack of pitch, just come along to the veg stall to join in 60 minutes of jolly carol singing with Christine on her recorder, and trombone accompaniment. If you have a musical instrument to bring and play (and that could include a bunch of sleigh bells too), you might just be excused from singing! Mince pies and mulled cider from our Community Garden will be on hand to cheer you along and reward your efforts.
Date: Saturday December 20th
Venue: The Community Produce Stall (next to Matalan and St. John’s Church)
