Transition Wilmslow are asking local residents to consider how Wilmslow can be made a more sustainable and community based town in the future.
They are also asking whether residents are worried about rising food and energy costs, our dependancy on imported energy and food and climate change.
The local community group is holding a public meeting on Saturday, 31st March, for those who would like to get together as a community to address these challenges and identify positive local solutions to meet them. Residents from Wilmslow, Handforth and Alderley Edge are welcome to join them to share their ideas.
The groups, whose aims are to find practical solutions to reducing carbon emissions and lessen the towns reliance on oil, have so far planted the beginnings of 2 orchards sites around the town, and are currently running an energy project after winning a substantial grant from the Governments Local Energy Assessment Fund.
Rachel Corrigan, of Transition Wilmslow, said "This event is really to find out the public's view of how they would like to see Wilmslow in 20 years time, and to identify what initiatives that we, as a community, need to take to get us there.
"It's also a great opportunity for residents to come along and get involved in making positive changes in our community. Transition Wilmslow is all about taking action ourselves rather than complaining about the issues in our society."
The meeting will take place at the Friends Meeting House, at 1a Bourne Street, Wilmslow from 10am to 12am on Saturday 31st March. If you are interested in becoming involved in the group email [email protected] or visit the Transition Wilmslow website to find out more.
