PROJECTS & ACTION GROUPS

Working with others, we do a lot - and we'd like to do more.   Can you spare a little time to help?

Community Food
Garden

 

We've transformed a derelict site into an environmentally friendly community and garden space highlighting new ways to use space for growing food and plants.

Energy Action
Group

A very active group working on projects from locally renewable funded energy, assistance with energy saving and insulation and great work in establishing a carbon baseline for Tring

Food & Local 
Produce

The local food infrastructure is very important to us - find out what you can do to help.  We'd also like more help in helping to encourage a new wave of "growing your own". 

Influencing &
Campaigning

Our work ranges from providing input to the local council plan through to running positive workshops and events with schools, organisations and businesses. ​

Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle

Do you think we throw out too much stuff?

We're supporting the setup of a Repair Shed or Repair Cafe in Tring as a community effort to fix things rather than binning them.

We're actively looking for people who'd be interested in helping set this up.   Contact Ken at transition@tringintransition.org.uk 

Local Transport

We've supported the idea of car sharing at Tring station for several years. So we are delighted to see a new, and pioneering scheme, sponsored by London Northwestern Railways.  
 

Now attention is turning to a better community bus service around Tring and surrounding villages.  Tring Council have applied for a grant (also from LNR) and we have additional ideas for a (potentially autonomous) electric bus solution too.

We'd love some help with this - get in touch if interested in finding out more.

What if Tring.......(fill in the dots!)

Tell us how you'd imagine a future Tring.  We'll collate all of the ideas we receive and hold an event to shape new, exciting projects and action groups.

Our Wish List

Business Advisory Group - help local businesses on their journey to be more sustainable and to establish a recognition system.
School & Community Outreach - We already educate and encourage local groups - and want to do more.

Eco homes - a BIG ask, but we'd love to find land and collaboratively build carbon neutral, zero running energy homes.

Greening, Re-wilding and Wildlife - we're already collaborating with the likes of Wild Tring and advising on local wildlife corridors, and there is much more to do.

Get in touch if you have any ideas and/or would like to help.
