A Bus Spider Map for Penzance?

Penzance Bus Spider MapPenzance Bus Spider MapWe need to make buses easier to use and services easier to understand. So-called “spider maps” are now in use elsewhere in the country. They make bus routes easier to understand and bus stops easier to find. This is a first draft of what such a map for Penzance and district might look like. It’s consistent with First Kernow’s main services for Winter 2016/17.

Hayle Hub Event: Food in Friendship

7 February 2017 - 7:30pm - 10:00pm
The Cornish Arms, 86 Commercial Road, Hayle TR27 4DX

Transition Penwith's Hayle Hub warmly invites you to a meeting on Tuesday, 7th February, at 7.30 pm in The Cornish Arms, where we will be looking at various ways to become more self-sufficient and eco-friendly where food is concerned. The meeting is a part of our function as a focus of sustainable living in the Hayle area, (, and builds on the success of the Free Lunch back in October, where a team of volunteers produced an organic meal from donations by local producers for 70 folk, in the freely rented Hayle Day Care Centre, with ages ranging from 5 to 70+. Surely community at its best?
At our last meeting in December, we discussed various ideas of what we could do next…growing our own food in pots around town, a community orchard, involving the schools, or even sharing seedlings? And this meeting is the next step where we hope to decide on what is possible. This of course depends on turning enthusiasm into action!
