Welcome to Sustainable Tiverton.
Sustainable Tiverton is part of the Transition Network, which inspires and supports communities to become more sustainable in the face of climate change – building resilience, supporting bio-diversity and reducing CO2 emissions. We encourage local projects that combat global warming and environmental damage; by supporting community groups to set up, run activities and events, get publicity, and work with others nearby.

Our local councils have agreed to act on the Climate Emergency and we need to build up local action. Could you help?

APPLE DAY DATES 2019
This year we are planning our first Tiverton Community Apple Day in the Pannier Market!
So we will have 2 events in October:
Tiverton Pannier Market Oct 12th 10-3pm
Sampford Peverell Village Hall Oct 26th 11-3pm
Both days will provide juicing for your own apples or community juice from unused orchards/trees. With refreshments, music and ‘apple-y’ activities.
It would be great to find more ‘unused’ apple trees in our area, if you know of any please get in touch so we can record them and arrange for picking.
And if you’d like to join in creating the juice (it’s fun!) or have a stall at the event please contact:
Do you have something that needs repairing?
A group of volunteers meet regularly to repair small items.
Free of charge, donations welcome to cover costs.
Our next repair session is on September 7th.
Contact us to make arrangements to drop off and collect your items.
