To celebrate the hard work of the Gasketeers who have restored and reduced the carbon footprint of these iconic symbols of Malvern’s heritage. We will be running a walk on 25th November 2015. It will start at 7pm in West Malvern. Meet at the Brewers Arms sign on the main road. Click here for a map.
The walk will be an hour or so and will partly go over not well lit unmade paths so walking boots or good shoes are recommended. A torch may also be useful.
After the walk we plan to retire to the Brewers Arms.
If you are planning to come on this walk please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we have idea of how many are coming.
29th NOVEMBER 2015:
On this date, a huge protest will be taking place across London on the eve of the crucial Paris climate talks, which will take place from the 30th November to the 12th December.
Around the world, in major cities, people will be coming together to demand that our governments take action to save our beautiful planet. Across the UK, people will be working together to make this the biggest, most poignant demonstration yet, and our unified voice will resonate from London across the globe to call for real action on climate change. See campaigncc.org for more information.

An invite to all Transition Malvern Hills members from the Inner Transition Group.
Monday October 26th at The Cube, 7.30 to 9.30pm (Albert Road North, Malvern, WR14 2YF)
What is the connection and complementarity between the Inner Transition Group and the other Transition Malvern Hills (TMH) projects?
And what is the connection and complementarity between our Inner Transitions and the Outer Transitions that we would like to see in the world?
This session will explore this question – hopefully with members representing many aspects of TMH activities present.
This session fits with our theme of Recovering the Wisdom of Gaia in the sense that Gaia is a complex interconnected system of apparently enormously different life forms and physical systems.
So we will look at our similarities and differences and how they can/could complement one another. Part of the process will be using the idea that we are all part of a learning and adapting system.
This event is open to all members of TMH – we hope as many as possible will attend.
Worcestershire County Council has published the public engagement report on Worcestershire Parkway Station and our comments are included, not that we agree with their responses.
