It would be customary of me to write up our Sunday experiences at Pann Mill. The weather was nice and the people nicer but you can read all about that in one of our previous blogs. Instead I would like to answer a question that arose out of the Guildhall talk from 6th July. I showed a PowerPoint slide. It was controversial. People didn’t believe what it said. We can now tell you where the numbers come from. If you are squeamish, look away now.

Sir David Attenborough said “I’ve never seen a problem that wouldn’t be easier to solve with fewer people, or harder, and ultimately impossible with more.” High Wycombe marked Population Day on Wednesday 11th July with a showing of the movie “Growthbusters” at the new Wycombe Environment Centre. The event was put on by the High Wycombe Branch of “Population Matters”. Now we know what you are thinking: You know, “Population”… Just don’t mention the P-word: it’s a big turn off. It’s controversial. Almost anything else seems easier to tackle in polite company. Thus most of us won’t read to the end of this blog. I don’t blame you, but please hang on for a second. We ask: how is this relevant to High Wycombe & do we care?

It has been ten months since the High Wycombe Society kindly invited me to deliver a talk about Transition Towns. On Friday 6th July 2012 it was finally time and we gathered with a group of 40 members of the public upstairs in the Guildhall at 7.30pm to see the result. Now this isn’t the first time for me. I have delivered talks about our work to groups as diverse as Ecobuild and Flackwell Heath Women’s Institute.

The Totteridge and Terriers Jubilee Fete on Sunday July 1st was held on Totteridge Common opposite Totteridge House. Now we are VERY local to this, ie, we could have thrown our equipment out of the window of Superhome 59 and it might have landed in the right place!
