Music Festival

Thank you to all of you who came and visited the Transition Keynsham stall at the Keynsham Music Festival.

Congratulations to Claire Hudson who won our Good Food Raffle, which was full to the brim with delicious homemade and homegrown treats as well as some additional fairtrade luxuries :-).

 We sold over a 100 fresh strawberry and banana smoothies whipped up on the bicycle-powered smoothie maker. Mr Buss from Buss’s greengrocer gave us a great deal on the fruit but we still only managed to break into a grand £1.70 profit. Not the most lucrative fundraising effort but still lots of good fun!

We were even joined by Orinoco the womble to promote the R3 group’s new Keynsham Wombles project. There was lots of interest with people taking a flyer and asking how they could join the community litterpicking network.

Keynsham Yarn-bomb

Take part in our Keynsham Yarn Bomb!

We would like to invite you to be part of a ‘yarn bombing’ project to deck Keynsham out in a beautiful array of woollen wonders.

We’re starting small and aiming to decorate the new community vegetable patch that we’re starting this Autumn in Keynsham Memorial Park. We would love lots of woolly flowers, insects/bees/butterflies, fruits and vegetables to decorate the edges of the bed. Here are some patterns to get you going :-D.

We later hope to make the regeneration works in the town centre bearable with more yarn-bombing later!
