We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Grow Heathrow presents: Resistance Jam

Posted: October 3rd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Events | Tags: , | 3 Comments »

With BAA still scheming for expansion at Heathrow and Grow Heathrow up in court, we’ll be getting together for a weekend this October to show them we’re here to stay. We’ll be… Pizza-munching, Apple-scrumping, Chutney-making, Face-painting, Cake-baking, Scaffold-sculpture-making, Potholing, Tyre-rolling, Fire-stoking, Jam-stiring, Night-singing, Lake-swimming, and much, much more.

WHEN: On the weekend of the 14th/15th/16th of October 2011. Come for the day, an hour or the whole weekend. Bring a tent or at least a sleeping bag if you’re planning on staying over. Some limited indoor bed space is available, so get in touch early if this is the only option for you.

As well as all this – The UK Tar Sands network will be joining us. On the Saturday October 15th we unveil the first Tar Free Community in the UK – Tar Free Transition Heathrow! What does it mean to be a tar free town? How can your community become tar free? Find out when we celebrate with you all on October 15th at Grow Heathrow, 3pm – the movement for a tar free future begins!
