September 2011 Newsletter

Southend-on-Sea in Transition

September 2011 Newsletter

You are free to include items from the newsletter in your newsletter, email updates, website, blog etc just leave a link to our website.

Southend in Transition, is supporting a personal and community level Transition to a more localised, happy and resilient lifestyle. Have a look at what we are working on with our friends and get involved. It has been a busy few months since the last newsletter and I hope you will enjoy the summary of the projects and events below.


Nurturing Health


is an initiative of Milton Community Partnership intended to improve the quality of life for residents of Milton Ward and the Southend on Sea area.


We believe that high quality, fresh, locally grown food is fundamental to a healthy life and a healthy world, and so we are supporting local people to grow their own vegetables and fruit using their gardens, allotments or even patios, balconies and window sills. Visit www.topofthecrops.org.uk


To help out at events or contribute ideas please get in touch Milton Community Partnership tel. 01702 213264 miltoncommunity@hotmail.com


Transition Together


The Transition Together project forms small, social groups of friends, neighbours and colleagues and then supports them in taking a number of effective, practical, money-saving and carbon-reducing steps.


One of the participants commented: “Everyone helps and inspires one another.  As one of the team said in our first meeting, ‘we can grow and develop one another’s ideas to enrich our lives’ – and we do.

Taking part in this local programme could mean that you:

  • save up to £600 pounds this year

  • get to know your neighbours better

  • save on energy and water in the home

  • cut your bills and reduce waste

Southend in Transition is currently looking for:

– partner organizations and local agencies who would like to work with us on the editing of the workbooks to make them relevant locally – a great way to inform and involve local residents in your activities and programmes

– individuals interested in taking part – to start piloting the project in your street, ward or organisation – we will offer the handbook, support in starting and managing the group

Visit here (Totnes) and  here (Taunton) to read up success stories.

Visit our local website Transition Together in Southend to get involved or if you want to be kept up to date.
