Thinking Globally, acting locally – Transition Buxton is a group of local people concerned about the environment working to improve our community’s resilience through practical actions and projects.

We have groups working on a range of projects including; Repair Cafe, dispersed community orchard, free home energy assessments, Library of Things, and working towards Plastic Free Community status – browse our site to find out more.

Excitingly the Library of Things is now starting so please click her to read all about it.

Everyone who lives or works in Buxton and the surrounding area is very welcome to attend a meeting, suggest a new project, volunteer, become a Member, join our emailing list, interact with us on social media, or indeed to make a donation. Everyone has something to contribute to solving the biggest challenge we humans have ever faced. Lets make Buxton a hive of eco-activity that will help us get through the tough times ahead.

Repair Cafe – on 27th January 2024

Look out for our sign

The next Repair Café will be at the Methodist Church on the market place as usual.  It will be on 27th January 2024 from 9:30 AM until 1 PM. Our amazing repairers are taking a well-earned break in December and will be back with you all tools at the ready in January.

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!
