Transition Town Brixton has been in the Community Shop now for 11 months mainly staffed by volunteers organised by Sibylle Mansour TTB’s ‘shop manager’, assistant coordinator, reskilling coordinator. It has an office and resource centre above.
Our Future Jobs Fund workers on the Brixton Pound, Remade in Brixton and TTB, and our many volunteers have put in hundreds of hours advancing Transition in Brixton here.
Brixton Community Draft Busters are based, sell their equipment and have done excellent workshops here. A list of some of the stuff we sell is here
But it costs us Â£789 per month and we are not earning the rent yet. So we may have to shut up shop at the end of January. Which unless we can find an even better place would be a pity. So we are using the last 10 days before we may have to give notice to try and galvanise TTB around keeping our Transition Centre in some form or other. There is the beginnings of a campaigning document here. Please visit and contribute ideas or take on tasks. You can email here to get involved.
