Transition Town Worthing wants to demonstrate many water & energy saving techniques through this event - some simple low cost, some more complex - you choose what suits your budget and time. Come, join us and have some fun finding out.
Please note that this event has now finished.
Come see and learn.. Do you have an image of the kind of house you would really like to live in? Is it technology driven, are you hoping to renovate and try something new? Do you worry about watering your garden as the rains become less and then we experience torrential downpours? Do you want to be more responsible but think it is too difficult, too expensive or have no clue where to start?
Well, our 14 venues may be just what you are looking for… The people who live in the houses are just like you and I - work hard, need to be careful about what and how to spend money but really want to be more responsible and live better on some level. Then we have exhibitions and displays about water and energy saving, flood prevention, waste management and some exciting local projects that support and enhance the environment.
This year we are focusing on how to conserve water as we live in a water stress and flood potential locality and there really are some simple and effective ways to conserve water. However, if you are wanting to reduce your energy usage then these properties are just the ticket too.
Whatever interests you, take a look, find the properties that you'd like to know more about and make a day of it – let our home and business owners, as well as the managers of the larger venues, share their stories and experiences as we endeavour to help Worthing, Lancing and Shoreham on a journey of better living, whatever that looks likes for you….
Workshop and Tour
Maybe you want more? Maybridge Keystone Centre is running a workshop on how to build a rain garden and we have also organised a tour so you can see what really happens to your waste - both designed to be educational and get up close with detail. Get yourself along to one – they are both FREE - we really want to help you and the environment!
