Someone once told us we were “a little bit green, a little bit community and (normally) meet in a pub “ what’s not to like?
Transition Lymington is a local group taking action to create a more sustainable SO41, as part of the global Transition Towns movement. Formed in 2008, we are a not-for-profit, non-political, diverse and friendly bunch. We meet once a month in the evening to organise educational and skill sharing events to reduce waste and improve where we live.
Our projects and events include:
Jean Genie workshops to reuse old jeans and denim.
Lymington Repair Cafe, where our volunteer experts will help repair your item.
Clothes Swaps – for everyone to come and regenerate their wardrobe
Sowing Seeds for Local Food – sharing skills and information on growing some of your own food
Pennington Community Allotment – a keen group of sowers, growers and recipe makers who learn from each other. They also collaborate on different a citizen science project or trial each year.
Boomerang Bags – upcycling fabrics to make washable, reusable shopping bags. Currently we are making bags alongside other groups across the forest area, to give to the New Forest Basics Bank. This will help them remove single use plastic bags from their deliveries.
Abundance Lymington – picking apples for people you can’t, and giving them to local pre-schools and nurseries.
Recycling – we promote NFDC clear sack recycling, but also have an additional list of items, supporting local groups and charities.
