When: 7.30 – 9.30pm, Thursday 16th June 2011
Where: Portobello Baptist Church Hall, 185 Portobello High Street (next to the Portobello Bar).
Despite recent funding disappointments, PEDAL continues to go from strength to strength — progressing existing projects, initiating new ones and attracting more and more local people. The loss of core funding — and therefore paid staff and an office — will impact on what we can do in the short term, but PEDAL continue to have ambitious plans to help Portobello become more sustainable.
Please come along to hear about what we achieved last year, exciting projects you can get involved in this year, and what other transition groups around the country have been up to. This is also an opportunity to become a member of PEDAL.
Please bring some home-made food to share if you can.
