Thinking Globally and acting locally – Transition Buxton is a group of local people concerned about the environment working together to improve our community’s resilience through practical actions and projects. We have groups working on a range of projects – a Repair Cafe,  a community orchard, a home energy scheme, producing more food locally, encouraging better use of public transport and cycling – browse our site to find out more. We are also researching running a Library of Things in Buxton.  Please email inspire@transitionbuxton.co.uk if you are interested in getting involved with this exciting new project.

Anyone who lives or works in Buxton and the surrounding catchment area can be a member of Transition Buxton CIC – the Application form is here. We are happy to accept donations from members and  supporters, see the Funding and Donations page for more information.

Buxton CO2 report

Marches Energy Agency have carried out a Carbon Emissions analysis for Buxton. The full report can be found here. The analysis looks at the whole community and by Ward, each Ward having it’s own appendix.

Buxton Cup

The Buxton Cup is now available. We have produced a reusable, recyclable cup that can be used instead of the single use plastic cups so often seen at fetes, fairs and festivals, read about it here.

Repair Cafe – on 27th August 2022

Look out for our sign

We can now confirm that the next Repair Cafe will be at the Methodist Church on the market place.  It will be on 27th August 2022 from 10AM until 3PM.   

This is a great opportunity to bring along that non-working or broken item and see of one of our repairers can fix it for you. 

Rather than just consigning it to history come and see if it can be a part of your future as well and help reduce waste into the bargain!
