We had a record turnout for Lewisham Green Drinks last night, with approximately 25 people packed into the back room of Mr Lawrence Wine Bar to hear about and discuss the Transition Towns movement. There was a lot of enthusiasm for getting something off the ground, though exactly what isn't yet clear. I suspect it may start with a Lewisham-wide e-mail list, then as people make contact with other interested people in their area, smaller projects will get off the ground. At the moment, people from Brockley, Sydenham and Lee Green all seem keen to start something.
Will post again when I hear more. In the meantime, those who are interested may like to join Project Dirt, and specifically South London Low Carbon Communities, which is trying to bring together the many and varied initiatives that already exist.
And of course, if you live in Ladywell ward, don't forget to come along to our ward assembly tomorrow at Prendergast School (lower site), not least as we have the chance to become a pilot project for a local low carbon initiative (more details at the meeting).
