Making a difference

Some of our members want to do more to help the environment so there’s also the opportunity to take positive action. As a group we want to help and support our town to;

  •     reduce emissions to net carbon zero by 2030

  •     restore nature and look after our local wildlife

  •     use more sustainable resources, services and products

 

We engage with our town and county councils, MP, schools, local businesses and other organisations to raise environmental awareness and discuss what we can do in our town. We've put on a range of events from film screenings, political debates, tree-planting, an Eco-Fest, clothes swaps and more. Based on our joint passions, we’ve formed project groups to work towards our aims.

Our Active Travel project group is working to reduce carbon emissions by campaigning for a cycle path network throughout our town and into Swindon.

Our Rewilding group is working to increase our town’s biodiversity through tree-planting initiatives, campaigning to let our road verges, parks and gardens bloom with wildflowers and more.

Our Sustainable shopping group is working to help our town reduce plastic, waste and emissions and champion our local, independent businesses.
