TLT Social Meeting 27 May 2014: TALK "The Significance of Low-impact Development and the Transition Movement"

plot1-lammasThe next meeting of Trawsnewid Llandrindod Transition will be on Tuesday 27 May from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Herb Garden Café, Llandrindod. Rob Oakey and Gwen Sanderson will be talking about low-impact development.

ALL ARE WELCOME! free admittance includes hot drink and cake served at 7pm.

The evening will include a talk on what low-impact development is, in terms of building, land use, energy, water and community. Rob and Gwen will give a brief summary of planning permission in the UK and the Welsh policy context (One Planet Development and TAN 6 and the One Planet Council), some examples of obstacles and success stories, and will discuss the relationship between the mainstream and the margins. There will be a question-and-answer session after the talk.

Rob Oakey and Gwen Sanderson were involved in Transition City Lancaster before becoming WWOOF volunteers to learn about low impact developments, especially under TAN 6, Planning Policy Wales. Currently based between Llandysul (Montgomery) and Lancaster they continue to learn about small-scale land use and low-impact living.


MAY FAIR 2014 - thank you everyone

The second Llandrindod May Fair was held in the Pavilion on Bank Holiday Monday (5th May). The fair was a wonderful celebration of local community and talent, a very happy day, and attracted an estimated 500 visitors from the local community and further afield.

The warmest of thanks are extended to all the people who made the day such a success.

These are, in no particular order, as follows.

The 45 stallholders, who packed all the rooms of the Pavilion with a colourful mix of displays, activities, competitions and wares.

The 30 generous local businesses and residents who donated all the lovely prizes for the May Fair Chinese Auction. Proceeds from the Chinese Auction will go towards the running costs of transition town events in Llandrindod in the coming year, such as Repair Cafes and the Llandrindod May Fair 2015.


guest article: visiting a Dutch Repair Cafe

Dear TLT

I hope you don't mind if I tell you a little about a Dutch repair cafe which Don and I visited (by bicycle of course) when we were in Holland this month on a family visit. You may forward this to anyone interested.


We visited the Repair Cafe in Harderwijk, a town of about 45000 in the east of Holland, not far from where my mother lives. I wanted to see how they did it in the country where it all began.
