Transition Sudbury and District is a sub-group set up in 2010 to raise awareness of the key issues centred around promoting initiatives, activities, projects and events to encourage sustainable living and reduction of carbon emissions.
Film shows, guided walks, visits to environmental schemes, debates on energy issues, Give and Take events are just a selection of the events and initiatives which have taken place through the Transition Group.
The Partnership has also supported a ‘Warmer Homes’ initiative, organised Eco-Fairs, an annual apple pressing day and encourages the use of green energy as much as possible.
By raising awareness and challenging obstacles to sustainable living within our community we can help reduce carbon emissions, the cost of living and also improve a wider understanding of the benefits associated with this way of thinking.
The Transition Group has offered a variety of skills-share classes, in subjects as wide-ranging as bread-making, basic cookery, chicken-keeping, composting and vegetable-growing, Christmas Wreath-making, and six-monthly Give and Take events, where unwanted, but useful, household and garden items may be donated by residents, for those in need to take away. This reduces items going to landfill and benefits others who will find a use for them.
Currently this group has no leadership, but concentrates on organising the twice yearly Give and Take events, which remain popular and well supported by volunteers and members of the community.
