ACE 2019 - A celebration of Transition in Tooting and looking forward...

On Saturday 2nd March, we held our Annual Celebratory Extravaganza! at Mushkil Aasaan on Tooting High Street. 75 people came from diverse backgrounds, some close to Transition Town Tooting, some coming for the first time, some young, some not so young, all very welcome!

75 people joined us to celebrate! And look forward together
It was fun looking back at our activity and seeing how we have worked.

7 themes of our endeavours emerged:

Local Food Growing and Cooking

Outdoor Learning

Urban Nature and Biodiversity

Good Change Locally

Creativity and Imagination

Low Carbon Living

Wellbeing and Community Inclusion

Do you Jellybrella?
Mushkil Aasaan was decorated in true TTT style with a  displays highlighting specific projects and partners: folks sitting on the Talk / Not Talk bench made by CARAS and TTT; the Community Garden and a partnership project with Gatton School; the Foodival annual community food festival; the buzzing presence of crocheted honeybees illustrated the community & CARAS getting together. We shared the extraordinary Jellybrella - happening now and during the Wandsworth Arts Fringe.

Donate and transform your old or broken umbrellas into a Jellybrella!

Our Jellybrella participatory arts project reuses waste to celebrate creativity, diversity and sustainability. The main event is a free family day on May 11th at Sprout Community Arts in Furzedown, offered as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe. More info here.

Donated at TTT's ACE
The raw materials we're using are all saved from scrap, and the key thing we need is lots of umbrellas! 
Maybe some of the lost umbrellas of Tooting which gather wasted and folorn in corners of pubs and cafes?
Maybe an old or broken brolly of yours? 
Maybe one you find in the road?
You can donate in many ways to the Jellybrella project: your golfing or fishing brollies, pretty parasols, or classic old school British black rolled-up umbrellas.

Where to donate a brolly in March & April:
  • Bring to the Tooting Community Garden any Sunday between 11:00 & 1:00. We're at 5 North Drive SW16 1RN
  • Bring to any other TTT meeting - for example the Open Monthly Meeting on Tues 12th. Details on TTT events calendar.
  • Leave them for us at the Work & Play Scrapstore
  • Leave them for us at any of 3 Wandsworth Oasis charity shops - at Amen Corner, at 40-42 Trinity Road or at 127 Mitcham Lane
