NEXT EVENT - Our next open meeting will be on Wednesday 18th April at 7.30pm in the St Nicolas Pastoral Centre. We welcome Benoit Witchalls who will be speaking about his experience of converting his own home to meet the "Passivhaus" standard to reduce the demand for heating and energy consumption. The talk will cover materials, techniques and technology used, and will be followed by a discussion on practical steps that any homeowner can take. Entry £2, to include refreshment.

What will Bookham look like in future?
Transition Bookham is a group of local people who are concerned about the environment. We're part of a wider network of over 1000 Transition communities throughout the world who are all working to make their local neighbourhoods more sustainable and self-reliant. 

Here in Bookham we want to build on local strengths to develop and support ways of reducing our collective carbon footprint. We're trying to raise awareness of the issues about the damage our lifestyles do to the environment. We hold open meetings in the St Nicolas Pastoral Centre, which take place quarterly, usually on the third Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm. 

Can you help?

We're always looking for people to help turn our vision of a sustainable Bookham into a reality. If you share our interest in the environment please get in touch!
Our aims are to develop local resources and expertise in:
