Haddenham in Transition hosted a film show at St Mary's Church on Saturday evening, 17th January, with members of the audience providing the electrical power for the projector to function!
The event attracted an enthusiastic audience of some 130 people, a significant proportion of whom had travelled to the event by bicycle — some cycling from as far as Thame and Chearsley.
The evening was co-hosted by Sustrans, the national charity working with communities, policy-makers and partner organisations throughout the UK to help people choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys and to enjoy better, safer spaces in which to live. You can visit the Sustains website here.
The evening began with introduction and update on the proposed Thame to Haddenham cycle route by Peter Challis of Sustrans, and then continued with the cycle powered screening of "Bicycle", a 90 minute documentary which posed the question: why is cycling and the bicycle back in fashion?
