Transition Larkhall (TL) is an unincorporated association with its own constitution. Initiated in 2008 by Hyla Holden and a small group of Larkhall residents as ‘Larkhall saves the Planet’, from 2009 it became Transition Larkhall to align with the wider Transition network.
The Transition movement, which is now world-wide, began in 2006 in Totnes, Devon. Following the movement’s principles of working for a post-oil economy through local communities, Transition Larkhall aims to initiate and promote non-carbon and sustainable living for residents and businesses in and around the Lambridge ward of Bath.
The Alice Park Community Garden was the first Transition Larkhall project to get off the ground, it now flourishes as a semi-autonomous group with regular volunteer sessions and activities for both children and adults.
Transition Larkhall’s other recent activities include promotion of local shopping, cycling, and energy conversation. It works with other local groups, such as Bath and West Community Energy, and relevant parts of Bath and NE Somerset Council. It supports the St Saviour’s Infants Solar Schools Initiative and the Clean Air Campaign for Bath.
Any resident or business in Lambridge or the adjoining wards of Walcot, Lansdown, and Swainswick is welcome to join.
