Keynsham Voice January column, Happy new year

In case you missed the Keynsham Voice this month you can read our column here:

Transition Keynsham wishes our community a very happy New Year. We’re looking forward to what 2018 will bring.

We were delighted by the success of the talk we helped put on in December, with Patrick Holden and Ped Asgarian explaining how we can eat sustainably for our health and the health of the planet. We’ll be working together with other local groups to put on more events on sustainability, climate change and the environment.

Our Energy Group’s Community Energy Company will be offering shares in a local renewable energy scheme (rooftop solar) in early 2018. We’ll be prioritising local investors, and any profit we make will be ploughed back in to energy saving schemes in Keynsham – specifically to alleviate fuel poverty.

Our Dig In days at the veg plot in the park will continue. We extend a warm welcome to anyone who’d like to get fresh air and exercise and meet our friendly bunch of gardeners. Just pop along on the first Saturday of the month at 10:30am.

After all the indulgence of Christmas many people’s thoughts turn to exercise. Gardening’s a great way to do that. But there are other ways of getting fit. Here are a few suggestions, that – unlike the gym – get you out in nature too.
