Since April 2021, Transition Bookham has been operating only as an umbrella organisation for the Plastic Free Bookham project. Find out about the project at



Eco-crafting day Saturday 14th May 2022. We're holding an eco-crafting and make do and mend session in the St Nicolas Pastoral Centre on Saturday 14th May 2022, from 10 am until 2.30pmCome along for the whole session or drop in at any point to make greetings cards from recycled and reused materials, get help with repairing and upcycling jewellery, or bring along a repair project of your own (nothing that needs electrical tools) to share skills and pick up tips. If you're planning on making cards, it would be useful - though not essential - if you could bring along your own scissors and glue.

Entry is £2.50, which includes tea and coffee, with an additional small charge for card blanks/ envelopes and any jewellery materials used. There will also be a fund-raising stall with craft items, books and bric-a-brac.

Transition Bookham

Bookham Squareabout
What will Bookham look like in future?
Transition Bookham was formed in 2010 by a group of local people who were concerned about the environment. The Transition Towns movement is a network of over 1000 Transition communities throughout the world who are all working to make their local neighbourhoods more sustainable and self-reliant. 

From 2010 until 2020 we held regular meetings and events to raise awareness of the issues about the damage our lifestyles do to the environment. From 2021 onwards we are concentrating solely on gaining Plastic Free accreditation for Bookham.

Can you help?

We're looking for people to get involved with the Plastic Free project by signing up as Business Champions or Community Allies. If you represent a local business or organisation and are interested in joining our Plastic Free journey, take a look at the project website (address above) to see what's involved. 
Outside of the project, if you are interested in organising a local environmental talk or event under the Transition Bookham umbrella, please get in touch at the email address below. The main subjects we're interested in are:
