Our Sustainable Living Guide has been updated and improved, with more pages and a map of where to find community venues, ethical shops and places to get things repaired in Southampton.You can get your copy at our events, other venues around the city such as libraries, or download from the website.
Southampton Repair Cafe is open on the first Saturday of every month (except January), from 10.30am-1.00pm at Fremantle United Reformed Church Hall, 257 Shirley Rd. Next repair cafe will be Saturday 5th Mar.
Repair cafe aims to keep everyday items away from landfill, save resources, give people the opportunity to learn new skills and build community.
Transition Southampton aims to inspire a happier, healthier and greener Southampton.
It’s over six years since our organisation was started and in that time we’ve run an incredible number of projects, everything from cooking and workshops, fruit tree planting and community gardening through to our two green open home exhibitions and our repair cafe. We’ve produced a Sustainable Living Guide and a Station Walks book. We’ve delivered training, talks and information to many groups, and along the way we’ve shared food, watched films and had fun at socials and our AGMs. We are committed to working with local communities, organisations and local government to help develop positive solutions that meet the imminent challenges of fossil fuel scarcity (‘Peak Oil’) and climate change. We want to celebrate all that we already do in our city.
We need people with new ideas, and we need people willing to put energy into our projects. We also welcome volunteers for backroom functions like treasurer, webmaster, membership secretary or newsletter editor – an ideal opportunity for those who’d like to help but for whatever reason can’t get to meetings.
