Village transition initiative is dissolved


KINGSLEY Transition Initiative, the organisation launched nine years ago to help the village become more self-sufficient, has folded-up.
An  extraordinary general meeting called to consider the group’s future decided it should be dissolved due to lack of support.
Members decided the group had achieved as much as it could – and pointed to quarterly local produce markets, provision of solar panels on the community centre roof, new allotments and numerous small initiatives involving the local schools, Scouts, tennis club, etc.
Spokesman Simon Sherlock said KTI currently had funds of more than £2,000 and it was intended that when all liabilities had been met, the remaining funds would be passed to Kingsley Parish Council Community Fund.
Anyone with any projects of a  sustainable nature should contact  the parish council via the village website www.kingsleyvillage.co.uk
Mr Sherlock said it was likely that individual members of KTI would continue to support local projects on a personal basis. Anyone with questions could contact him at simon@sherlock.co.uk
Frodsham Transition Initiative, which grew out of the Kingsley group, is continuing and, indeed, won an award from Frodsham Town Council’s environment committee in the recent Mayor of Frodsham’s Community Pride Awards.
