NEW: Bring & Share

We’re intending to trial a new series of social events when social distancing allows

  • Supporters of Transition New Mills, as well as anyone else who wants to come along, get together informally to have a chat and discuss possible projects in more detail. The event is an informal way of learning more about Transition New Mills, to discuss ideas and meet like-minded people. Everyone is welcome.
  • Details of when and where Bring & Share will take place are advertised on our Facebook Page (see above) and e-mailed to those on our e-mailing list (e-mail us on if you want to be included on our e-mailing list)
