CHRISTIAN ECOLOGY LINK PRESS RELEASE                             11 FEB 2010

100 Mile Trans-Yorkshire Train Journey to Transition Town Meeting

  1. Press Release before event -journey to Scarborough.

Green Christian Althea Shevill will be travelling 100 miles by train across Britain's biggest county (North Yorkshire) from Settle to Scarborough for a Christian Ecology Link Weekend Conference on "Transition Towns" on Friday 12th February - not just because she has strong environment views, but because due to a stroke 10 months ago she is partially paralysed and has to use a wheelchair.

The Meeting is a Weekend Conference/Retreat run by Christian Ecology Link on the Theme: Transition Towns and Christian Living (Title: On the verge of chaos: Transition living in a time of collapse). It will be held at Green Gables Hotel, Scarborough, 12-14 Feb, and the weekend for 50 people has been fully subscribed since November. The Keynote Speaker is Rev Sam Norton of West Mersea, Essex who has written about Christianity and Peak Oil

CEL brings together Christians in the UK and beyond who are praying and working for a 'transition journey' to sustainable levels of consumption, and who share a conviction that care of the environment is a Christian Responsibility. It has weekend or day conferences each year to enable this, as well as a magazine, leaflet resources and an email group. To find out more about Christian Ecology Link and the resources it offers, visit

"I am so lucky to live in a town with a railway station, and that they kept the Settle Carlisle Line open" says Althea. "From Settle to Scarborough will take us nearly 3 hours." Althea, travelling in her new electric wheelchair, will be accompanied by friend Alison Crisp on the train. Meanwhile another friend, Judith Allinson will go by car carrying luggage and Althea's hoist needed to lift her from wheelchair to bed etc. Judith will be stopping en route to buy organic carrots and other vegetables from Newfields Organics, Fadmoor, near Kirkbymoorside, an organic farm first set up by Methodists Howard and Rosemary Wass.


1. The "Transition Towns" process/idea is one in which people, spurred on by the ideas of climate change and the upcoming shortage of oil (Peak Oil) get together in their community
and work out systems for overcoming/living with these problems -ahead of when they happen. Also see
