Getting involved in Transition Sheffield

Currently Transition Sheffield is run by an enthusiastic but small group of individuals. We'd love to do more, but we really don't have the time. If you have skills or ideas and can spare an hour or two to make things happen, then we'd really love to hear from you. We've put together a little wishlist of the kinds of people who'd make Transition Sheffield (and therefore Sheffield) a bit more of a creative, happening and sorted place to be.
