Here are the highlights from the last month:

On Saturday 15th September, Stroud and District Access Group held the first Liberty Festival in Gloucestershire — to celebrate the abilities of people with disabilities, showcasing what we can do, rather than what we cannot do.

SAY NO TO TV! So here’s a TV Channel saying don’t watch TV? Perhaps I should explain more….see:

Wednesday 24th Oct Film Workshop: Learn what goes into the art of special make up effects with SFX makeup artists Max Van De Banks at The Guildhall, Gloucester: contact Guildhall for details.

SWITCH TO ECOTRICITY: Transition Stroud have teamed up with local green energy supplier, Ecotricity, who will donate up to £60 to Transition Stroud each time someone switches energy supplier to them and quotes either TRS1 or Transition Stroud. Changing to Ecotricity has two other benefits; firstly it supports the building and supply of green energy production and secondly at 250 employees they are the largest employer in Stroud bringing a significant footfall into the town. If you switch electricity we get £40; for changing to both electricity and gas we receive £60. So, if you’re thinking of changing supplier sign up with Ecotricity today, quote the code and know that you’re also supporting Transition Stroud.’ If you prefer to sign up over the ‘phone you need to quote ‘Transition Stroud’ or the source code ‘TRS1’. You can also sign up to TS newsletter at: http://www.transitionstroud.org/

    Hi Phil, just an observation from myself and a few friends that the SC TV seems to be taken over by promo music events and very little else. I appreciate that you can only put on what is submitted but the shift from earlier in the year of a really diverse selection of films now seems to be rather boring in its content and taken over by a couple of the same videographers.
