Community action for a sustainable future

So much has been going on recently with our volunteers beavering away in the background that we thought we should send you an update.

Below are some things we hope that you will find interesting in, remember Transition is an open group,  new volunteers are always welcome and your ideas are our life blood.

Apple day is coming

Our annual apple day is returning for its third year on October 11th this time under the Grammar school in the town centre.

A chance to meet our dedicated volunteers and see our community owned apple press in action and maybe buy a share.


Brampton Valley Way

Forage for all project

Imagine walking along this former railway track surrounded by wildflowers and edible hedgerows, immersed in the sound of busy insects. This was our dream when we initiated this project with the participation of NCC, LCC, Leics & Rutland willdlife trust, Beds, Cambs & Northants wildlife trust and Sustrans. The pathway to Shambala!

More information soon!

Seedy Sunday returns

Established in 2011 Foxton's Seedy Sunday quickly became a popular event in the local calendar. The absence of the 2013 Seedy Sunday event led us to contact Meryl Cumber, who is pleased that the Transition's volunteers are enthusiastically able to take over the event.

N2 group disappointed

A group of residents from Newcombe Street and Naseby Close (hence N2) that included two of our volunteers had been petitioning Harborough District Council since 2009 to take over a disused garage site. The idea was to buy it from the council and establish a community farm on the site.


Welland Woodlands disbanded

A local group that formed including members of TTMH has recently announced that it has disbanded due to the unavailability of land in and around Market Harborough.
