Invitation to PEDAL’s 2011 AGM and ‘Creating the Future Now!’ session

When: 7.30 – 9.30pm, Thursday 16th June 2011

Where: Portobello Baptist Church Hall, 185 Portobello High Street (next to the Portobello Bar).

Despite recent fund­ing dis­ap­point­ments, PEDAL con­tin­ues to go from strength to strength — pro­gress­ing exist­ing pro­jects, ini­ti­at­ing new ones and attract­ing more and more loc­al people. The loss of core fund­ing — and there­fore paid staff and an office — will impact on what we can do in the short term, but PEDAL con­tin­ue to have ambi­tious plans to help Portobello become more sustainable.

Please come along to hear about what we achieved last year, excit­ing pro­jects you can get involved in this year, and what oth­er trans­ition groups around the coun­try have been up to.  This is also an oppor­tun­ity to become a mem­ber of PEDAL.

All wel­come!

Please bring some home-made food to share if you can.
