We’re very happy to announce that we’ve secured two small grants from the Transition Network via The National Lottery Community Fund.
Our Warrior Square Station community garden project has needed more visibility within the local community. Passers-by are always complimentary but forever asking who’s responsible. To help better communicate who we are and what we do (and why), the first successful Bounce Forward grant will pay for the installation of a community noticeboard. As well as raising awareness of the garden, it will promote the garden sessions to potential volunteers, and advertise other town-wide activities promoting more sustainable living locally.
In the spirit of supporting a circular economy – an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources – TTH’s second successful Bounce Forward grant is going to help them initiate a brand-new-to-town event – a Jumble Trail. As its name suggests, a Jumble Trail is a community-based, neighbourhood-led jumble sale where a ‘treasure map’ helps local residents buy, sell or trade their pre-loved stuff in the convenient location of their own front garden. The first Jumble Trail will hopefully take place as a prelude to our flagship event, Sustainability on Sea 2021, next autumn.
