About the Open Meetings

Ocasionally we arrange an ‘Open Meeting’ with a presentation or film on different subjects and there are usually between 20-30 different people turning up for the evening. These meetings are open to everyone and take place at the Fleetville Community Centre, off Hatfield Road near Morrisons.

The Open Meetings  include discussion and time for informal chats and meeting up with others who are involved in Transition groups. More information is posted on this website, and in the monthly newsletter. The meetings are very suitable for newcomers to Transition – and bring together people from all over St Albans who are involved in various groups.

The meetings are free, with a small donation requested to cover room hire and refreshments.

During the summer we run our Open Food Garden programme -where you can visit local gardens that are growing their own fruit and veg – and get some inspirations, tips and advice from the gardeners – see  2016 Open Food Gardens
