Summer meeting 2024: Hungry for Change

Tuesday 11th 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 will show and discuss the 30 minute Cornwall Climate Care documentary Hungry for Change: “a fascinating and inspiring journey to meet people in Cornwall working on ways for us to ‘do food better’ as the climate changes”.

Entry free, thanks to generous hosting by the United Reformed Church and film sponsorship by local firm Wings Accountants. All welcome (if under 18, bring an adult). Shareable poster here. We encourage support through membership (£5pa) and donations.

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.

Time for Action – Midsummer meeting 2022

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?

Have your say – colour the future

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.
