Transition Penwith Launches Its New Programme of Events!
A bit like buses, Transition Town projects flyers don’t come along for months, and then three come along at once. Last week you’ll have seen the Transition Town Totnes and Transition Town Lewes flyers, today it is the turn of Transition Penwith. Things are continuing to grow well there, and the programme is a confirmation of that. You can download the pdf of the inside here and the outside here.
