Transition Southport is holding their next Green Drinks event on Thursday 13 September 2012 at 8 PM at their new venue at The Victoria, 42-43  Stanley Terrace, The Promenade, Southport, PR9 0DS.  The pub is situated directly opposite the Ramada Hotel, and to the left of the Victoria Leisure Centre.  The event will take place in the right-hand seating area at the top of the staircase.  





Transition Southport is holding their next Green Drinks event on Thursday 19

July 2012 at 8 PM at their sparkling new venue at the SANDGROUNDER.  They

will be meeting in the platform seating area to the left of the entrance.  This monthly

event is open to individuals and organisations interested in sustainability,

environmental issues and community who would like to get together informally over

a drink or snack.  Guests can choose to just socialise or get involved in discussing

the hot topics of the month.


“We’re delighted to have found such a bright and airy new venue, and are extremely grateful to the manager for accommodating us at the last minute when we suddenly lost our previous venue” said Transition Southport member Michelle Povey. “They’ve even got a local beer called Sandgrounder”.   Martin Fessey, Manager at the Sandgrounder said “ It’s great to be getting involved in events like this which benefit the community in Southport”.





Following the successful launch of their Green Drinks event at the Shakespeare Pub last month,

 Transition Southport is holding another evening of green conviviality on Thursday 14 June at 8 PM at the  same venue.  This is open to individuals and organisations interested in sustainability, environmental  issues and community who would like to get together informally over a drink. 



The May event attracted members of various Southport groups such as Friends of the Earth, Blue Ocean  Planet, Ribble Estuary Against Fracking, Grow Organic West Lancs, Friends of Bedford Park,

 Streetbank,  Southport Freegle, local green businesses and councillors amongst others. 


Joe Bleacher, Chair of Green Waste Enterprises said "I was glad to attend the very first Green Drinks Event.  It was full of community spirit and a desire to get things done in the town about environmental issues.  It was a very positive meeting with locals interested in improving our community.  I am looking forward to the next one, and would like to invite other people to come and see what concerns the Southport community has, and what they are doing to make things happen."


Paul Wolfenden, owner at The Fair Trade Store commented "Having attended many networking events over the years, I found the Green Drinks evening to be particularly informative and rewarding.   I met a number of enthusiasts and potential new customers who were eager to  find out more about the ethics and provenance of my business over a glass of wine.  The event was also an excellent opportunity for me to learn about contentious green issues affecting the surrounding area, of which I was previously unaware.  So, an informal, enjoyable evening in at a welcoming venue turned into a very productive one too.   I look forward to another Green Drinks event soon."
