Sceptics of UK's renewable energy programme should take a hard look at these energy source maps. Coal from South America ... that's just stupid.

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!

Club Meeting 29.03.12

Musselburgh Camera Club -

On Thursday we had the opportunity to see the 2011 winning entries of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, where MCC came 37th out of 400 large clubs that entered.There was a range of subject matter and in the first section there was quite a number of ‘composite’ images where there has been a great reliance on Photoshop. These are challenging and are basically artistic and if one has the time and inclination then there is some credit in them.

However the second section of images were more ‘straight’ photographic images which the majority of us prefer and in fact the top three winning clubs were nearly all of this type. Much can be learnt from seeing a good selection of work where we can get inspiration and help us to strive to continue to improve our output. But as always enjoy what you do and if you (and your granny) like your work then don’t worry about what the ‘judges say’!

We are still missing images from about ten members for the Library Exhibition, so if you have not yet brought an image in then please sort one out so that we can truly have a display that fully represent the MCC members.

Next Thursday we are again visiting Beeslack so either go straight there or meet up at the Fisherrow leaving there at 6.45pm.

The following week, Thursday 12th April will be the last meeting of this season, although we will be organisation monthly summer outside shoots, details in due course. We will be having our AGM followed by the Trophy presentations and then a social ‘get together’ afterwards. So please make a real effort to come along and hear about what we have been up to and what is in store for members starting in the next session in September.

Charlie and I visited Del yesterday and we were able to ‘waffle’ away which for the period we were there helped to take Del’s mind off of his pain and discomfort which he was most grateful. Del has done so much for the club and is such a talented and great person, so please try to make some time and go along and see him. Visiting times are 3-5pm and 7-8.30pm and he is in ward 18. Anita can be contacted on anitanutter@mac.com

For better communication to all members we wish to rely on the ‘Post’ on the web site, where if you sign up to it you will get an automatic e-mail notification from the web site as to a new post. If you have not yet ‘signed up’, and you are not sure how to do it e-mail Rob McCann on ramccann@hotmail.com (as shown on the front page of the syllabus) and he will put you on.

Regards to all

Clive
