FAR-reaching proposals to create a sustainable, eco-friendly community gather pace as a key player in Totnes' march to a town free from oil dependency addresses the new Exmouth group.
The Transition Town Exmouth group - seeking to play its part in protecting the climate and community and wean residents off expensive and finite fossil fuels - will stage a public meeting this month.
The transition movement has already joined forces with Exmouth Residents' Association to stage an address by Naresh Giangrande from Transition Town Totnes team. The Exmouth Community Association has also backed the event.
The Totnes movement has been underway for two years, the experiences of the group providing a model blueprint towards a new option for sustainability as the price of oil soars and resources plummet.
The meeting will be held in Hall 2 at Exmouth Community College's Green Close site on Tuesday, June 24, 7pm.
The film 'A Crude Awakening', highlighting the impact of the world's oil shortage crisis, will be shown at the Blackmore Theatre at 7.30pm on Tuesday, June 17. Admission costs £2, while anyone watching a previous Transition screening welcome to introduce a guest free of charge.
