Hi Steve,Are okay to give a 30 min talk as well as a speakers corner performance on the street. I'm working on a web page for the festival, how would you like me to describe you and the youro. This is sizing up to be a great gig all in all, am accumalating tiredness but also excitement.
Also will you need a place to stay for both nights I can arrange this.
Hi Steve are you still for coming up to Newbridge to talk about the youro and local currencies. We can put you up, feed you and cover your travel expenses. Hope the hemp symposium was fun and all is well with you.
All the best,
Kate FADA Newbridge
We talked a bit at Convergence, as I recall it, about the possibility of some kind of a 'learning event' to help spread the lessons from the Youro pilot - wondered if three months on this feels like a good idea worth the hassle ? Happy to help, if it seems a good idea.
How is it all going anyway - I'm sure a load of us would love to know !
We are holding our second Feile na Samain - harvest festival in Newbridge on Sat. the 31st October 2009. Last year over 1000 attended, this year we are hoping to attract 2000- 3000.
We plan to have a speakers corner and are looking for articulate, engaging and informed individuals to set the tone. You came to mind immediatley. I met you at the convergence festival this year and very much enjoyed your presentation. We very much want to introduce the concept of complimentry currency to both the general public and the business community of Newbridge.
Its a long way and you are a busy man but I have to ask if you might consider coming up. We would cover your travel costs and find you a bed for the evening and of course feed you the best homegrown local produce Newbridge can offer.
Hope all is well with you,
I hope the launch went well, it is a fantastic example one I hope we can follow in Tralee and ALL of the kingdom.
Sorry if your feeling a bit lonely in south Kerry, but fear not ye are never far from our hearts.
Personally things have been very busy here with the shop , farm and markets.
We have still been working very hard in TTT, with 2 more public meetings before we brake for the summer.
We are planning a powerdown course for augest /sept and that should bring more people and community groups into the transition movement and allow us some more time for a better coordinated Transition Kerry movement. We have christina birrer, oonagh comerford plus 3 others from kenamre. It could be very benifical if you were able to help with the local currencies.
I passed on your details to an old lets group here in TTT who were thinking of starting up again.
I tried to get to get to the convergence in dublin but I put my back out on the fri and could only make it as far a longford, I am sure it all went well. While I was disapionted about missing it I was delighted to know it was happening. A true gathering of the clans.
Have you had many places booked for your hemp bulding course, I would be very intrested.
Hi there, hope all is well with you!
We are getting ready here in scarriff to do our first transition town event on the 29th of may and I thought it owule be great to get some info from other transition towns to display on the evening to give people a sense of the bigger picture...I'm looking for anything, leaflets, posters, articles, photos etc. and I am very happy to create a display of irish transition towns that can be dupklicate and become a resource for everyone..
how does that sound? Would you have any material to contribute?? Since the event is on the 29th time is of the essence,if you have anything in hard copy you can send it to my address Laccarowe, feakle, co. clare, if is via e-mail it's better to mail it to bob wilson (also a member here) since I don't have broad band.
Thank you for your help,
