Can you help?

The Wombles have been invited to be the official litter pickers at this years Keynsham Music Festival and we are pleased to announce that we will be Wombling at the festival between 12 noon and 10pm on Sunday 6 July and from 8am to 12 noon on Monday 7 July.

It’s a chance to see our Wombles in action, say hello to some fellow Wombles and find out a little more about how to get involved in Keynsham Wombles.  We have divided the days up into 2 hour slots and would really welcome any help over the two days, we still have a few slots to fill so this would be a great opportunity to get involved.

Please email womble@transitionkeynsham.org to let us know how you would like to be included.

If you can’t help on the weekend please share with friends and family so we can really make this festival a litter free success.

thank you!

Plans are afoot to reduce the facilities to just two units – one a uni-sex (all age) and the other for disabled and nappy changing. There will be no men’s urinals.

Also there will be cost of 20p to use the toilets.

A few objections have already been posted to the planning office and can be seen at the link below.

We only have until 15th of May to object, so please use the link below to to do so – it’s easy.

The wildflower patch

 

 

We’ve had a busy afternoon at the wildflower patch, getting things ready for this summer and sowing seeds.

We are really interested to find more people who would like to get involved in this ongoing project as we need some more hands to keep the patch nice any healthy for the local bee and pollinator population.

If you would like to get involved and see this project develop please get in touch at our usual email address: keynshamt@yahoo.co.uk photo 2
