Transition Omagh Energy Group

Members of our group recently attended a PowerNI award lunch today at Armagh City Hotel and received a second cheque for £7,500.00 for our Transition Omagh energy group to spend on energy saving measures in 2012. This award follows on from our successful participation in the PowerNI BIG Energy Saving Challenge since this time last year when we received the first award of £7,500.00.
Keep an eye on the newspapers for the full report ...

This week in Transition Omagh November 2010

This week is a special one for us here in Transition Omagh in that we have had a number of watershed events simultaneously occuring at the same time.

One milestone this week was the official start of the new organic vegetable garden at Omagh Integrated primary school. Parents from the school approached Transition with the idea of setting up a garden. Transition Omagh did some research as to where founding could be identified , an application was duly sent in and was sucessful . The funding enabled the school to set up four raised beds, a herb circle and composting area , plus engage a teacher gardener to work with p7 class in the spring/summer term next year.

Another notable achievement this week was that as a group we decided that we would constitute ourselves as a limited company with charitable stautus (which has already been set in place, the charitable status that is ) and that a seperate trading arm for Transition Omagh would be seperately constituted as Community Interest Company,allowing the group to trade and if there was any suprplus for it to go back as a funding stream for Transition Omagh.

Setting up a Community Interest has a number of advantages as it enables a possible fundraising stream for Transition Omagh, enables the participants to tender for contracts, enables people to be paid for work done and enables associates to be co-opted into the CIC to bring in expertise where needed.

Yet another significant event this week, is the hosting of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) meeting by one of our members in Carrickmore on Friday the 19th of November. The guest speaker is the farmer central to the scheme that has been up and going in Cloghjordan Co. Tipperary for the last three years.

Another benchmark for Transiton this week was the launch of our new website. After two years of prevaricating and hoping and waiting for someone to turn up that would have the energy and time to keep it up to date, to continually populate it with new information and resources, this has finally happened and we went live the website address is http://www.transitionomagh.org/

Finally the “piece de resistance” is of course the Sow the Seed concert on Sat 20th November and fundraiser to raise awareness about climate change while simultaneously collecting enough money to buy 350 fruit and nut trees for schools around Omagh.

For a flavour of this concert have a look here
