Billinge and Orrell Transition Group is a growing group of volunteers aiming to start a community response to the challenges of climate change and peak oil.
We want to bring together the collective skills and creativity across Billinge and Orrell to evolve a sustainable low energy future. As a community we are part of an international network of towns and cities with the same aims, the Transition Network. Find out more about Transition Town nationally at the Transition Network
Whilst a new initiative, we want to recognise and celebrate the individuals, community groups and local organisations whose knowledge base already contributes to our sustainable community. We want to build on these skills to develop a vibrant and resourceful Billinge & Orrell.
You can find out more by visiting the resources page to download flyers explaining about the group and the things you can do!
This is YOUR chance to be part of the community working to safeguard the future of Billinge and Orrell through positive and collaborative initiatives to create a healthy self-reliant and thriving community!
