This was the first time that the food group held a meeting at the Fat Cat pub at the top of Spring Road. On less busy days of the week this pub provides plates and cutlery for patrons to eat takeaways, and they were happy for us to use their facilities bring along food and share as usual. The Cat has a good selection of real ales and the meeting went very well. Dano took the notes in mind-map format

Many towns around the country are now well on their way to putting into practice a local energy descent plan and they look like they're having a pretty good time as well.
