Neighbourhood Heroes

People are at the heart of thriving neighbourhoods where we all want to live, walk and play. We want to keep shops and services, and the people that work there close to you. The government is undertaking the biggest shake-up of the UK planning system for a generation. We are campaigning to make sure they understand the need to keep the shops and services we value within walking distance. Together we can send a strong message that we don’t want them to close.

Making Havant a greener town

Published in the Portsmouth News on 14th March 2011

A VOLUNTARY group which is attempting to transform a town into a greener community has celebrated its first birthday.

The Havant Transition Network’s members want to change the attitude of residents, encouraging them to become a low-energy, low-waste, more resilient and self-reliant community.

So far the group has installed a recycling point for low-energy bulbs in the Meridian Centre, West Street and set up the Havant quilt project where residents are working together to make a giant patchwork quilt using recycled materials reflecting parts of the town’s history.

They are also planning a community play called Bob and Doris Are Not Afraid. The play offers the opportunity for ordinary people to become involved in a creative project exploring climate change.

The group celebrated at The Pavilion with live music and a cake decorated with the group’s logo.
