We invite you to join us and help make Cobham a healthier, happier village to live in.
Transition Cobham is bringing change to our community and it's easy to get involved. You don't need any specific skills, just plenty of enthusiasm. Help us to build a more sustainable future and have fun along the way!
We're a grassroots organisation working on creating a greener and more sustainable Cobham.
We aim to build resilience, encourage sustainability and connect the community. The key areas we're addressing are Food, Transport, Waste and Energy.
News and Events
We are still in extraordinary times but it is now a time to show some optimism about returning closer to normality. To that end there have been announcements about reopening of activities, albeit subject to provisions designed to keep us safer.
Chatterbus. From Monday 13th July, the full Monday to Saturday service is resumed with added Covid protections. The same friendly service with the same friendly drivers and the previous timetable. It is hoped that you will give support in these difficult times as it receives no direct Covid subsidies. Full details at Chatterbus.org.uk
Cobham Community Garden will hold its first open morning for volunteers on Saturday 18th July 10 am to 12 noon and it is hoped that the garden can be open on every Saturday morning after that. It will be necessary to comply with social distancing and you would need to bring your own gloves, together with a mask for any close contact. Hand sanitiser will be available. Those wanting to attend should let the garden know by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Elmbridge Healthy Walks. Another welcome sign is that Elmbridge Borough Council have reinstated a Healthy Walks and Cycle Rides programme as from 13th July. It will be seen that Elmbridge do still have to operate quite differently from normal in that all walks and cycle rides will have a maximum of 6 participants, including the leader, with social distancing. It will be necessary to book and not just turn up. The timetable for July is available to view at https://www.elmbridge.gov.uk/sports-and-health/healthy-walks-and-cycle-rides/ where you will also find a booking form.
