Transition Tavistock has contributed evidence to inform aspects of the Tavistock Neighbourhood Development Plan, and encourages everyone who lives or works in Tavistock to take this opportunity to give views on the proposed policies. Support those you agree with by saying why they matter to you. Suggest changes where you think the plan could be improved.
We are delighted that our walking entry in Tavistock Carnival was judged best in class. Our costumes drew on the colourful characters in “The Lorax” – a Dr Seuss children’s story about restoring a forest destroyed by greed – which has been made into a musical and more recently a film. Thanks to the Lions Club of Tavistock for organising this enjoyable community event.
Tuesday 20th June, 7pm Tavistock United Reformed Church, Russell St. The evening includes our AGM – a chance to take stock, affirm the vision and plan for the future. We welcome the filmmaker Bryony Stokes of Cornwall Climate Care to present and discuss lead the 30 minute documentary “Food for Thought” covering regenerative farming, climate change and nutritious local food.
Entry free, thanks to sponsorship of the film showing by local firm Wings Accountants, but donations towards wider costs appreciated, as are new membership subscriptions (only £5pa).
The #GreatBigGreenWeek is a UK wide celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. We’ll share events we’re aware of in the Tavistock area here.
An AGM with a difference: time to refocus ourselves, to begin to reimagine how Transition Tavistock can respond even more effectively and creatively to the environmental and climate emergencies. Help us create this new future by bringing your head (knowledge), heart (passion) and hands (plans). 21st June, 7pm at Tavistock United Reformed Church. Free, and open to all, but if you are not already a member, why not join up on the night (subscription £5 a year) to show your support?
From Tavistock’s Neighbourhood Development Plan to national policies on climate change: we do have a voice as citizens. At the time of posting it seems to be consultation season! On this page we signpost a selection of current ones, updated on a rolling basis. The answers have to be analysed and taken into account – so supportive as well as critical comments matter. Lets use our freedom to speak up.
For opportunities to meet up, share ideas, and get involved see our Events summary, which links to in-person and online events we organise. Ideas for more? Get in touch to discuss.
In consultation with Learn Devon we have decided to postpone the workshop about how to engage people in responding to climate change, previously announced for 8th December. We hope to reschedule this in 2022. Meanwhile we will signpost relevant resources on our Climate Matters page.
We’ve got a stall at two great events which showcase local organisations working for the health of people and planet. Drop in to find out more about what we do and how you can be involved.
