Everyone needs a holiday, and Eastleigh Transition Network has been enjoying some time out recently, however it’s back to work now!
Over the next few days we’ll be putting up a few posts about our plans for the future. One project for the summer is a revamp of the ETNet website to start turning it into a comprehensive hub of information to help the people of Eastleigh live more sustainable lives. If you have any suggestions for things you would like to see on the website then leave a reply below, or contact Andy at email@example.com.

On Monday 7th May, Transition Chandlers Ford and Eastleigh Transition Network had a stall at the Fryern Funtasia festival. Our stall was themed around bees and we were putting the message out about how important bees are to us – if we lost them, we’d be without a lot of our food we have now.
On the stall we gave away free leaflets, wildflower seeds, and solitary bee nests (made out of drain pipes collected from Highbridge Community Farm, along with dried hollow stems from local hedgerows and cut down garden canes to fill the pipes). We also had Hampshire Honey tasting! Many thanks to The Co-Operative for the seeds and thanks to Friends of the Earth for the leaflets.
We also gave away colourful posters listing bee-friendly plants and for the children there were fluffy bees, also donated by The Co-operative.
Despite the miserable rainy start, it soon brightened up and hundreds of people attended! We managed to give away all leaflets, seeds, bee nests and fluffy bees! A great day had by all!
