So far Transition Keynsham’s Transport Working group has helped everyone from a young lad with no breaks to a chap recovering from a knee-op to ride more safely, more comfortably and with more confidence.
The punters of the advice sessions have been a nice mix of those just passing by with their bikes and those who have heard about the sessions and have come down specifically to see us. Which means the word is getting out there and the farmers market is helping us to be seen in the community. People have also been so chuffed with the ‘free’ advice that they have been offering donations – which is all helping to pay for our stall at the market.
If you would like some free bike advice from simple maintainence to a more enjoyable ride come and find our stall at the farmers market, every 2nd Saturday of the month under the clock tower!
We had a fantastic day down at the Keynsham Music Festival!
On our stall we had; home-grown ornamental and productive plants/herbs/fruits, home-made woollen fruit, vegetable and flower badges, a badge-making machine, a ‘bad food’ info display and a ‘good food’ hamper full of local, organic veggies, home-grown plants, home-made elderflower cordial, foraged nettles and nettle soup recipes, country market cake + jams, fairtrade herbs and free range eggs and fruits from the Anna’s farm – mmmmmm! – despite our best efforts to buy all the raffle tickets somebody who is not yet a transition member won, which is great as she has never won anything and looked chuffed to bits!
We also raised £130 from raffle, badge and plant sale which will go into the kitty for future Transition plans. David and Martin from our Transport working group were also there with the bicycle demonstration, wearing out punters of the festival.
Thank you to all the people who helped to make our stall so brilliant, either through growing plants to sell, bringing produce for the hamper, packing down in the rain, helping out on the day, buying a raffle ticket and everything else that went into it!
Now we better get cracking to organise our stall at the Victorian Evening!
