Ely Apple Festival – 18 October 2008

Our stall at this year’s Apple Festival was our first major outing as a Transition group.

And what a fine day it was!  We gave out lots of leaflets, explained again and again and again who we are and why we are here.  Almost everyone showed an interest and many signed-up as a contact, or for our email newsletter.

The highlight of the day was being awarded ‘best dressed’ stall by the organisers.  We were given a fetching trophy with ‘Transition Ely 2008’ engraved on the side.  We could hardly believe it, our first venture into the community and we’re given an award, brilliant!


It wasn’t so much the stall that caught people’s attention but rather our wonderful Yurt and busy-bee knitting group who produced a fine selection of hand-knitted Cambridgeshire apples.

More photos can be seen on our Flickr pages.

So, all-in-all a wonderful day.  Thanks so much to the organisers, the other stall holders and the good people of Ely.

Check out a short video of the Yurt, knitters and Apple Festival:

We have another stall next Saturday at the Farmers Market and our first major film showing on the 29th, oh my!

For those of you who didn’t get a leaflet here’s the low-down on the film.

  1. Fair play to all for yr work – we desperately need to show that business as usual, eg, promiscuous flights for holidays, is unsustainable!
