Musselburgh Transition Toun has formed a new communications team.
With a core group of three creative/marketing professionals already volunteering to get things started, we'd also like to involve local writers and photographers who may not have used social media, or written for the web before and want to learn.
We'll share our blogging knowledge and skills, including writing for online publication, preparing photographs and posting to a website. We would expect that you have an interest in local enviromental issues.
This skills development project is free. If you'd like more information, please get in touch.

Veg patch at Rennie Bridge Thanks Graham for sending the photo of the naked veg patch. It looks much bigger with the tree cut down and we might get much more planted than we originally thought. Thanks to everyone who came and collected the seeds to bring on at home. We can get these planted over the coming months but for now we should make a start on getting our paths laid and some of the directly grown seeds in the ground. Lets meet on Friday the 13th April from 10am – 2pm (but feel come and go in between these times) to get this project started!
