Celebrating Spring in Sipson

Posted: May 23rd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Events, Residents | Tags: , , , , , , | No Comments »

This blog is a bit late but here goes. The rain held out and joining plenty of other stalls, including dance classes, giant jenga, gnome painting and the Com.Cafe puppet show, Transition Heathrow had a great day with Heathrow villagers at this years Sipson Spring Fair.

In the Transition Heathrow area we had a mini selection of all the spaces from the Grow Heathrow site giving residents who haven’t yet visited a peek of what goes on in Vineries Close. A growing area giving away free tomato, salad and coriander plants and wild flower seed bombs, an energy space with a bike powered phone charger, arts and crafts with face painting and mural art, bike doctor and tandem riding and information stall, plenty of new friends were made.

A big thanks to all who came out for the day, its community events like these which bring everyone together and make people value and protect what we have here in Sipson.

Have a look at some pictures from the Uxbridge Gazette. And a big thanks to Kate Birch (Heathrow Villages Community Development officer) for making it all happen.

Just Do It comes to Heathrow

Posted: August 25th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Events | Tags: , | 1 Comment »

‘Just Do It’ – the new feature film documentary which follows climate change activists from groups such as Plane Stupid, Climate Camp and Transition Heathrow over the past few years is to be shown in the Heathrow area on Thursday 22nd September. The film showing will be hosted by ourselves and local community café the ‘Com.Cafe’.

Following the risky business of climate activism and direct action which has never been caught on camera before – the film follows activists on their mission to make sure the issue of climate change gets the full attention it deserves. The film is all about action rather than words. Where politicians speak and nothing happens – ‘Just Do It’ showcases those individuals who put there bodies on the line and face arrest to ensure action happens.

The resistance to Heathrow’s now scrapped 3rd runway features heavily in the film as does the story of the birth of Transition Heathrow.                              

The screening will be followed by a special Q&A session.

WHERE: The Com.Cafe, 60 Byron Way, West Drayton, UB7 9JD

WHEN: Thursday 22nd September, 18:30 – 20:30
