1st August 2012 was a sad day for Totnes. The local Council refused to accept that Costa Coffee on our independent high street is neither what the people want nor what the town needs. But despite the set back, the campaign continues and is ever newsworthy.

I’ll be running a short workshop on 26 July on how to make simple but effective posters and flyers, even when the only tool you have at hand is MS Word.
It’s a free skillshare at the Transition Town Totnes office, 7pm – 9.30pm. Hope to see you there! (Bring your laptop.)
For more information see the TTT website.
