Transition Town Letchworth is a group of Letchworth people passionate about building a thriving town fit for the future.  We love our town so much that we do this as unpaid volunteers!

Through our projects and groups we are working towards creating a vibrant, informed, low carbon, self-sufficient community which is resilient to the shocks of fluctuating energy prices, resource depletion and other world events.

If you like what we do, tell a friend!

Other events
  • Don't be a tosser!  Our friends in Royston are running another Repair Cafe on Sunday 27th April between 10am and 1pm.  Take your broken object to them rather than taking it to the tip.  They'll be able to provide advice on whether it can be mended and may be able to fix it there and then.  Free but registration essential.  More details here.
