Welcome to Transition Chesterfield! We're an inspiring community group aiming to make Chesterfield more resilient and sustainable. We want to create positive local solutions to the twin challenges of 'peak oil' and climate change, and make our town a better place to live.

We normally hold our monthly meetings on the second Thursday of the month, but April's will be on the third instead, so the 16th. It will be at Lisa's Home, 87 Newbold Back Lane, Chesterfield S40 4HH. We'll be starting at 7 and finishing by 9.
The video of this years Potato Day, which shows some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into it, is at: https://youtu.be/15vnjFf4HdQ. We're hugely grateful to everyone who helps, in whatever capacity - without you the event wouldn't be the continuing success it is.
On Sunday 19th April from 11.00am. Over 40 Totley people will be selling things from their front gardens. Lots of bargains - like a big neighbourhood car boot sale but starting at a reasonable hour. Teas and cakes available from one house.
