Preparations are well under way for a Transition Hythe float for the town’s popular Venetian Fete in August. This will be an excellent way to raise awareness of Hythe’s status as a transition town and is good fun as well.
After several planning meetings, work is now taking place each Wednesday evening, 6pm, at Hythe Town Football Club, which has provided the old clubhouse as a storage and work area. If you would like to join us, please come along. Anyone who needs directions to the football club or has questions can contact us via this website or can call Martin on 07787 124794.
Without giving away too much, the theme of the float will be to do with ways that we can transform our town towards greater sustainability, including less reliance on fossil fuels – quite a challenge to communicate via a float! Lots of creative ideas have gone into the design and it should constitute an eye-catching addition to this year’s event.
