TRANSITION Town Horsham is a new initiative by a group of local volunteers to encourage a grassroots response to the challenges of Peak Oil and Climate Change. Aiming to raise local awareness of the issues we explore the practical steps that can be taken now to address them in our community. We are part of the fast growing Transition Network believing that change is inevitable and it is better to plan for it together and to build resilience. We meet every last Thursday of the month at 7.30 pm at Friends Meeting House, Worthing Road , Horsham, RH12 1SL . For more details ring 07909 556525 or see www.transitionhorsham.org.uk
