Spring is in the air

Spring is almost here, the countryside is waking up, as is Transition Ely.  It’s been a slow start but we’re ready to get going for 2009. We’ve lots of ideas but what we really want is to connect-up with others in Ely and surrounding villages.  Please use our contact form if you have any questions, suggestions, comments or would like to get involved, the latter especially! Here are a few interesting resources to get us all going: The Local Government Association recently released a document called ‘ Volatile times — Transport, climate change and the price of oil’ — it’s well worth a read ‘ Nine Meals from Anarchy: Oil dependence, climate change and the transition to resilience ‘ by the New Economics Foundation is an excellent food-security primer
