Festive green drinks

*Note change of venue

We will be at the Mill Tavern for December green drinks. No talk this month – just informal chat about all things green and festive. All welcome. From 7.30pm Thursday 7 December at the Mill Tavern, Liphook Rd, Linchmere, Haslemere GU27 3QE.


Christmas market

Transition Haslemere will have a stall at the Christmas market selling mulled apple juice and secondhand books. The market – the biggest event in Haslemere’s year – will run from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 3 December. There will be lots of gift ideas and food and drink stalls.
You will find us on West Street with the farmers’ market stalls.

Allotment winter programme

Regular work has finished for the year now. Until spring 2018, we will continue to meet for monthly (mainly social) events, details of which are circulated to the allotment list. If you would like to be in the loop, please subscribe here. On Saturday 27th January (depending on weather) from 10am we are planning to have a work day with bonfire and soup at the allotment – a great opportunity to join us and see what it’s like.


Link of the month: Charter for woods, trees and people

On 6 November 2017, on the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest, a new Charter for Trees, Woods and People was launched at Lincoln Castle. Nearly 400 organisations collected over 60,000 tree stories from people across the UK about the role that trees play in their lives. These helped to define the 10 principles of the new tree charter, which you can read about and sign here:


Tree corner: Pick your own Christmas tree
