On Friday 9th October 2009 at 7.30pm (NEW DATE!) in Letham Village Hall there will be an ‘Old Letham Night‘ – an illustrated talk by local historian Donald Dallas and a chance to look at photos, maps and artefacts from the village’s past. This will be a ‘Bring Your Own Bottle’ event but stovies and tea are included! Don’t miss it!
The Local Food Festival was an incredible success; a delightful and fun day was
enjoyed by all! Our local food producers tempted festival goers’ taste buds, Letham
Hall was full to the brim for the puppet show and teas & coffees, the hay bales went
down a treat with the kids and the drumming delighted young & old! The Local Food
Group wish to thank our volunteers and participants for all their work in helping make
the festival the amazing success that it was.
There will be an informal Local Food Festival get together on Friday 2nd October at
7.30pm in Letham Hall – BYOB & nibbles – we will be providing a keg of local ale for
those who like a beer! We will have the opportunity to chat about the successes of the
day, whether we will do one next year and things we could do better next time.
We would like to extend an invite to ALL volunteers, participants & festival goers to
come along to the meeting; we would be delighted to see you and plan to have an
enjoyable Friday night!

Over the next 18 months North Howe Transition Toun will be running a wide range of environmental improvement projects in your area, mainly on the themes of food, transport and energy, funded by the Climate Challenge Fund.
In order to find out what will benefit the community the most, we will be carrying out a survey during October and November. This will ask questions about your household and what opportunities you might be interested in to reduce the impact of our community’s impact on the environment and improve its quality of life. There are several ways you can take part in the survey: You can book a visit by one of our survey team at a time that suits you, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning Louise on: 07879 996845
