How You Can Help Rebuild Our Town

With unprecedented national public interest in addressing climate change, the impact of and reaction to coronavirus, and the vision of the Community Conversation, Transition New Mills is poised for its most significant year yet.

There are lots of ways you can get involved to help reimagine and rebuild our town; you don’t have to be an environmental campaigner, an expert in anything, or have lots of time on your hands. None of us can solve the climate and natural crises on our own; we need to harness the collective energy and capacity of the town and everyone in it.

The diagram below suggests how Transition New Mills can operate. Anyone can place themselves on it wherever they feel most comfortable. For example, you might want to join in another group’s related activities (such as the Litter Pickers), a Transition supported project (such as the Repair Cafe), help with project mentoring or some of the administrative tasks, or join the Committee.

Looking forward to the AGM next Sunday evening (3rd May), we will be holding elections for up to 9 posts on the Committee. If you’re interested in that sort of role to help steer us forward, please do let us know beforehand by emailing transition.newmills@gmail.com.

Alternatively, if there’s any other way suggested by the diagram in which you think you could contribute, do also get in touch and together we can start creating a resilient, sustainable and ethical future!

To attend the 2020 virtual AGM on Zoom, please see joining instructions and papers here.

  2. Hi all. I have decided to change my MSc research thesis to locality and sustainablity of post-Covid food chains in High Peak, inspired by all the changes we have seen since lockdown. The research wil be in the form of surveys and interviews of consumers and suppliers. I look forward to talking to you all over the next few months. Many thanks. Esther
