We are a community group for the Chipping Norton area, promoting and developing Local Solutions for Sustainable Communities – actions that help our local communities to thrive and be resilient in the face of challenges and changes to our climate, environment, economy and society. We recognise that it is our natural environment which sustains life in the long term, and we are committed to reducing our own adverse impacts on this environment.

You can find out more about our activities on these pages and on our Facebook page. Forthcoming events are also listed on Facebook.

We are part of the worldwide Transition Network, with other similar organisations across the UK and worldwide taking positive practical actions to help villages, towns and cities ‘transition’ to a more sustainable future, using current challenges as a real opportunity to envision and create the kind of communities that ordinary folk really want and need.

We are also part of Community Action Groups Oxfordshire, a local network of over 50 groups across Oxfordshire who are at the forefront of community led climate change action, organising events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy and biodiversity. The network runs over 1,000 events per year, attended by over 60,000 local residents.

We work closely with Hook Norton – Low Carbon, who share similar aims to ours and who offer many good things for the Chipping Norton area, including a Car Club, energy saving advice for homes and buildins, and a low/zero-interest ‘eco loans’ scheme.

We would love to hear from you – drop us an email at TransitionChippingNorton@gmail.com or via our Contact Us page.

I’m new to the area, just moved to Barford St Michael, and am really interested in the transition group. How can I get involved?!
Many thanks,
Sam Jackson.

Hi Sam, great to hear from you! It would be great to have you on board – we have a number of things going on at the moment where we’d really welcome your involvement; if you wanted to give me a call on 07803 753684 (or landline 01608 644741) I could fill you in better. Alternatively if you are in Chipping Norton tomorrow, I’m manning a table (weather permitting) opposite the Farmers Market.

If you give me your email address I can add you to the list for our monthly information bulletin, and if you want to become a member of TCN (which for example entitles you to use the electric bikes in Chipping Norton and Hook Norton for free), then there are easy instructions here: https://transitionchippingnorton.org/membership-join-us
We’d also really welcome it if you ‘like’ our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TransitionChippingNorton

Hi – I’m curious if you all are sharing any of your ongoing projects or planning documents? Seems that permaculture and transition communities around the world could benefit from sharing their work with eachother… Thanks!
