Family Yoga Day & Transition Town Birthday

21 August Family Chill Out Day and Transition  Town Horncastle 1st Birthday Celebration

The Chill-Out day attracted lots of families, with over 60 people joining the fun. This event was organised by Transition Town Horncastle Green Babies project in conjunction with Horncastle Now as part of the series of children’s activities for over the summer holiday.

Children and grown-ups alike joined in with yoga, nature activities, dancing, the Brazilian martial art, ‘Capoeira’, bag painting & lace making. Quite a few mums were delighted to have a much-needed shoulder massage, and Shiatsu and Reiki were also available for those interested.

At midday, more Transition Town Horncastle members joined in for a bring and share lunch and cake to celebrate the group’s first birthday – what a fitting event for the occasion. Apart from all the enjoyment and relaxing that went on, new friendships were made, networks created, contacts shared, ideas brewed.  A truly community strengthening event , an important Transition Town aim.

£270 was made for the Green Babies and a donation is going to the Christian Aid Mali renewable energy projects as part of British Gas Educational Projects.

Thanks to the generosity of so many talented people who gave their time for free for the day.
