October 2009: Transition Wadhurst premiered the new movie about Transition at its second meeting on Thursday 22 October at Uplands School Hall.  "Transition Towns: the Movie showed how what began as a small community focused initiative in Totnes has now spread across the globe as people seek to find ways to live sustainably, locally and to 'power down' in the face of peak oil and climate change. Following the film, attendees were able to share some of the  four hundred plus ideas which had emerged from participants at the previous meeting and to vote for their favourites. The most popular ideas were a community energy scheme for Wadhurst, separate cycle tracks in all directions for a mile from the centre of the village, restoring the school orchard and garden and encouraging residents to share excess fruit and vegetables from their gardens.

September 2009:  Impressive Launch for Transition Wadhurst
Transition Wadhurst launched successfully on Thursday 10 September when over a hundred people attended the open meeting at Uplands School Hall to hear about the Transition experience in other Sussex towns and discuss how we as a community can act.

David Payne opened the packed meeting and emphasised that Transition is about positive responses to climate change, about vision rather than protest. He explained that the focus was on thinking about what kind of a community we will be if we want to live more sustainably.  Speakers Mike Grenville from Transition Forest Row and Ruth Valerio from Transition Chichester then each addressed the meeting, sharing their experiences of Transition in their towns.   A full report here
