News from Transition Leominster

In the coming months, Transition Network will be starting work on plans for a Hub for England and Wales, co-designed with Transition groups. The first step is to form a steering group we’re calling the Caretaker Group who will oversee and shape the beginnings of this process. We’re inviting applications for this exciting role and there is funding to support people to participate.

The Hub has the potential to be a gamechanger, creating a focal point for our movement to come together, to strengthen and support the work of individual Transition groups and to grow our impact. We want you to be part of it.


The charity, Lightfoot has a long record of helping people to make their homes more energy efficient.
“Since 2005 we have been offering home energy advice to householders via our Household Energy Survey (HES) scheme. This is a part professional, part volunteer-based scheme to deliver advice in the most effective way.  We have trained volunteers that visit people that have requested advice in their homes. The volunteers talk to the homeowner and gather information about the house and the family’s energy consumption. This local community-based approach helps to build trust. The volunteers send the information to our team of professional energy experts to convert into a report of recommendations, which is then passed back to the homeowners via the local volunteers. This is a great opportunity to help members of your community reduce their fuel bills and carbon emissions.
As you’re aware, Lightfoot is a charity and we do not sell or install anything ourselves, so that we are able to provide advice that is, to
the best of our ability, impartial and unbiased. This is especially important at present with escalating fuel prices, but is also important to help all of us to make our individual contribution to the reduction of the effects of climate change.”
