APPLE DAY –
October 11 2014

The Transition Harborough organised Apple Day returns for its fourth year on October 11th on the Town Square. The community apple press will be there in action producing fresh apple juice for everyone to try.
There will be stalls from the HIT Environment Group, Master Composters and Gardeners and news from edibLE16 local food hub.

To make this another successful day we need volunteers to help on the day, to prepare the apple scrattings the day before, to collect wine bottles that can be cleaned in advance of the day and used for the apple juice. Donations of apples before the day would be welcomed.

Please contact Gillian Baverstock on gillianbaverstock27@icloud.com 01858 465653 if you can help.

** Brampton Valley Way

** Forage for all project
————————————————————
Imagine walking along this former railway track surrounded by wildflowers and edible hedgerows, immersed in the sound of busy insects. This was our dream when we initiated this project with the participation of NCC, LCC, Leics & Rutland willdlife trust, Beds, Cambs & Northants wildlife trust and Sustrans. The pathway to the Shambala Festival ! The initial wildflower survey has been done and a more detailed survey will be starting very soon.

** Seedy Sunday returns
————————————————————
Established in 2011 Foxton’s Seedy Sunday quickly became a popular event in the local calendar. The absence of the 2013 Seedy Sunday event led us to contact Meryl Cumber, who is pleased that the Transition’s volunteers are enthusiastically able to take over the event.

As part of our work as a partner in the Sustainable Harborough project some of our volunteers have been helping deliver Harborough’s local food hub, an internet based shopping service for local food with a click and collect service based at the Admiral Nelson Pub in the Town.

edibLE16 is now incorporated as a Limited Company, and they hope to launch the shopping site in October. You can register interest in being a customer producer or a volunteer via the website.

The idea was to buy it from the council and establish a community farm on the site. Though the council has tried to auction off the land, it is believed they didn’t get a good offer and a sale to the community may still be an option.
