SAY IT WITH APPLES!
SPONSORS NEEDED FOR FRUIT TREES
What better gift could there be for Valentine's Day? The light of your life can have one of Buxton's Community Fruit Trees named after them, to stand as a token of your love for - with luck - the rest of your lives. The recipient will get a beautiful personalised gift card to keep, and of course you can visit your tree any time you want, then in a few years when it fruits, take a share of the harvest.
The weather was kind to us - the wind kept walking the gazebo across the car park but the rain held off, the fire burned brightly and even the sun putin the occasional appearance. Reports were presented, a new (if not very different) co-ordinating group was elected, and the proposal to convert Transition Buxton into a Community Interest Company was passed. Jilla, Janet and Charles are still chair, secretary and treasurer, but clearly looking for a way to escape - send us your suggested captions, a prize for the best one.

THURSDAY 14TH FEBRUARY
GO GREEN DAY, UNIVERSITY DOME
We had a fun day at Buxton's very own University, joining all sorts of green groups for an event in the Dome. As well as the usual display and books, we took along the Carbonopoly game - that's the one where Buxton ends up fully greened, with solar panels, orchards, wind turbines and electric buses, and all the players have more money than they started with. We were joined briefly by a visitor from far away, Paula Bear, who was with the Greenpeace team campaigning to Save the Arctic. She was delighted to find she'd won a crossword competition.
Dan made a couple of videos of the event which you can find here and here.
