Go go new logo

If you've visited before, you'll notice above that we've got a new logo for Transition Westcombe. The old leaf logo was really a temporary thing until something better came along - and how it has!

Some might recognise this unique 360-degree photography technique as the work of a local artist, who is a member of TW and who has put a great deal of time, effort, skill and creativity into this logo, so many thanks to him. It's a huge improvement - and when spring and summer come, we may well see it evolve into a version with the tree in leaf, which nicely echoes the idea of undergoing transition.

This old tree is a great example of natural resilience, too, having lasted for centuries while the world transformed around it - I'm told it's the second oldest of its species in the country (though I suspect many claim that title). The first to identify the street AND species correctly wins, let's see... a low-energy lightbulb.

Finally for now, thanks to all those who have been emailing to register their interest in TW. We are still at a very early stage, but we intend as soon as possible to arrange some kind of forum, for those who want to get really involved, to meet each other and do so. Watch this space.

Not the oak in Beaconsfield Close, surely?

Bingo. The lightbulb is yours! Seek me out at the transition drinks if you can make it, but if you cannot, don't let me forget.

Do you have any idea of whether this claim is true that it's the second oldest in the country?

I'm sure there are umpteen second oldest oaks kicking around: I've no idea.

Save the bulb for someone who does know!
