"Fall in Love with Follaton" Get Together
Follaton Community Centre, Saturday 8th Feb, 12-1:30pm
Organised by Totnes Renewable Energy Society and their friends, E-cocars, Totnes on the Move, Transition Town Totnes and New Lion Brewery.
Valentine’s Day is coming up and soon it will be fun to be outdoors once again... to celebrate that spring is on the way, you are invited to stop by the Community Centre to:
• Check out the solar panels
• Share some veggie chilli
• Taste some locally brewed beer
• Free! – watch eco video animations by Anita Sancha (for kids and adults)
• Hang out with your favourite neighbours
• Discuss DCC’s traffic-calming proposal for Follaton Gateway with PRIOR
The solar PV panels at the Centre, installed with help from the Totnes Renewable Energy Society and Yokk Solar, have been generating electricity since June. The new display panel in the lobby will tell you how much! Their energy output of 24MWh per year equates to the power needed to boil 1,200 kettles for six thousand cups of tea.
Would you like to have co-operative car hire on your doorstep? No more insurance, MOTs, maintenance or parking hassles, just a car when you need one. E-cocars, Totnes' community car club, is expanding by putting a car in each neighbourhood where it will be used by members. Would you like one at the Community Centre? Come and kick the tyres.
An electric bike would be a great way to nip in and out of town. Brought to the streets by Totnes on the Move, groups of neighbours around Totnes are sharing community e-bikes – The Castle group is lending you their bike to test ride around the estate.
All these things very loosely tie in with Go Green Week (10th-16th February), which is happening at schools and universities across the UK, but the organisers simply hope that you have a great time!
*Will cancel if there’s heavy rain*
