TMK's first AGM

Last night, Transition MK held our first AGM, which was attended by 6 people. Michael Sheppard and Hilarie Bowman were re-elected as Chair and Treasurer respectively, and Hannah Mills was appointed as Secretary.

Michael gave a short update about our group's successes over the past year which include: 
  • becoming a constituted organisation and undertaking a 'health check' to show the strengths and areas of development for the group
  • running a series of successful events including a discussion evening with climate change communication specialist George Marshall, running a Climate Change Gathering to show MK's support for action on climate change and hosting a series of film and social evenings
  • Raising the profile of the organisation by having a presence at other 'green' events across MK such as MK Feast and through our work with campaigning organisation Citizens MK.

Over the next year we plan to build on this work, and extend our group's reach into MK by developing a series of events and activities which involve a wide range of MK residents.

To find out more about our group, please contact us or pop along to our regular meetups at John Lewis which are normally held on the first Wednesday of the month.
