Transition Wells Food Group
A new food group has formed and has already met. The group which arose from the Wells Food Festival Festival event, ‘Eat the Landscape’, is inspired by the work of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall #waronwaste and has already contacted all our local supermarkets to find out their views on food waste. The next meeting is 7.30pm Wednesday, 2nd December 2015, in the Globe, Priest Row. All are welcome.

If you are interested in combating food waste, and signing Hugh’s pledge, please click on the link:

Transition Wells Energy Group
The energy group is making plans to offer out thermal imaging surveys. We intend to first evaluate surveys carried out so far and write to everyone who has had a survey to find out what measures they have found most effective.

The Thermal Imaging Camera provides good images once temperatures have dropped to around 5C and the there is a difference of at least 10C between internal and external temperatures. So we are unable to carry out surveys at the moment due to the unseasonal mild weather but are collecting names for when it becomes cooler. If you would like to have a survey, please email Maddy at maddy@milnes.myzen.co.uk.

We have also written to James Heappey MP, to raise our concerns about the withdrawal of Feed in Tariffs, which will affect many community energy projects across the country. His response is here: scan0015  scan0016

The next meeting of the Energy Group is 9.30am-10.30am, Saturday 28th November upstairs in Pickwicks. All are welcome.
