Bootstrap’s off the blocks

Calderdale Bootstrap’s first event, which took place at the Trades Club on Sunday, was nothing less than a roaring success. Around one hundred people turned up to enjoy good company, a showing of the film Demain and fantastic food from the Real Junk Food Project Calderdale.

The film, which documents alternative economies in 10 countries, inspired a number of potential pitchers to express an interest in taking part in our big event on May 5 and led to the formation of a local currency group.

It also led to Bootstrap’s pledge to support SOCIT‘s campaign to stop demolition of Todmorden’s college and transform it into a community hub and a centre for teaching future skills, agroecology, natural building and alternative energy.
