Mission Statement The wording of our mission statement was discussed and amended to read:- “to strengthen the community’s response to climate change, inequality and shrinking supplies of resources, including energy, water and land, by building long-term town resilience and reducing carbon emissions.” Allotment Sarah King explained that a large allotment at a prominent place on Pound Lane, which had formerly belonged to Devon County Council, had recently been acquired by Glenorchy Church. She was managing it as a community allotment and several local groups including some unemployed people who are attending the Glenorchy Workclub and some people with special needs were also already involved. There would be no cost to TTE. Sarah took the contact details of nine interested individuals and said that she would be calling them to a meeting to discuss arrangements. Future events Thursday 27 June, Green Drinks to be held at the Grapevine in Victoria Rd. at 8pm; this event is to be monthly. Saturday 24th August, Picnic in the Trees, gather at our plantation at noon at Greenfingers, Pound Lane, bringing food to share.
