Report from May Fayre 2017

We had a brilliant day at the Trust Links organised Fayre. We set up in a lush location and could witness the bees at work.

The children enjoyed the home made play dough and making a DIY mandala from newspaper cut outs.

We used that time to chat about Southend in Transition with adults introducing the community allotment and Repair Cafe ideas and everyone was interested and shared our interest in building resilient and connected communities. We had a few signs up for the newsletter, donations, books bought and seed shared.

Walking around the grounds you could see how the Fayre has grown from year to year and got better and better. There were bands, how roast, May Pole and there was even an inflatable bouncy castle! New comers commented how they went past the site hundreds of times to be surprised at how many different things were hidden away behind the shrubs.

You can meet us again tomorrow at the www.sitcommunityallotment.wordpress.com between 10-14. We will enjoy some gardening but also read a few poems during lunch time.

Radical Fair, The Railway Hotel, Saturday 6th of May, 12-18

Why are we doing this?

2017 looks set to be a historically turbulent, crisis ridden year. It would be easy to give up on any attempt at changing the world for the better.

Fortunately, there are a number of groups and individuals in Southend and the surrounding areas who see things differently. They’re working at grassroots level on projects to bring about change.

We’re holding the Southend Radical Fair to let people there are positive alternatives to the prevailing climate of despair – this is your chance to see what’s on offer. There will be stalls by active local groups, meetings, workshops and coaching sessions to inform you and help you to get involved in changing the world.

How you can help?

Start Sharing. Use the Invite button with joy.

The Real Democracy Movement will be presenting their new book Democracy Unchained. Come along to hear about the threats to democracy and the multiple ways it can be protected and developed further. The evolution continues.

We will have around 19 stalls with local, regional and national organisations. If you did not make the list get in touch with us to drop your leaflets of.

Come along, get involved and start to make a difference. Please share.

We have the stalls and programme firmed up and it looks like an eclectic mix ready to draw your attention and give you hope and plenty to get involved with in the coming year.

Looking forward to meeting you!
