Planet Shaftesbury - 19-9-19

Thanks to Christina for these notes:

A lively group of over thirty people gathered for September’s Planet Shaftesbury meeting. It was opened by Rachel who, having created a circular space in the centre of the room, indicated the four directions of North, South, East and West and invited each of us to stand in the approximate locations of our homes. It was a great way to meet our near neighbours and we were able to get to know one another and chat, but it was also a reminder for us to think about living more 'locally'.

The news and information exchange was facilitated by Maude, and several topics and projects were highlighted:

  • Vegan Taster evening at the Arts Centre on 12th October

  • News of Tree planting plans in Hindon where local landowners would need to be consulted

  • Further news about the Shaftesbury Town Tree Plan and introduction
