Library of Things
Ever wondered why we all need a drill, a wallpaper table, a gazebo or a sewing machine EACH? Why can't we just share and save the Earth's resources. Well soon, in Exmouth, we can do just that. Launched in 2021 by a partnership between Transition Exmouth, the Library of Things group and Littlemead Methodist Church,
www.exmouthlibraryofthings.org is a treasure trove ! Email if you'd like to know more. New volunteers always welcome.
Shared eCargo Bikes for Exmouth
Transition Exmouth's ExeCargo bikes are here to prove that an eCargo bike can do as much as a car - and more.
They are available for hire for just £10 a week, to Exmouth businesses, community groups and individuals.
You can borrow an eCargo bike for a week or longer.
We have a Raleigh Stride and a Tern GSD.
If you'd like to find out more about ExeCargo, or get involved with promoting the scheme, please see our ExeCargo webpage here,
We aim to reduce the amount of litter in our town, whether on the street, public space, country lane or beach. This group incorporates Clean Street Exmouth which facilitates people joining with neighbours to keep their own street clear of litter. We organise litter blitzes where we spend about an hour in a group cleaning an area or a country lane. Go to the Facebook page to find out more, or contact Roger via email.
Exmouth Tree Project
Active Travel Exmouth
Active Travel Exmouth is a new group campaigning locally for better provision for walking and cycling. Walking or cycling around our town eases congestion, reduces pollution and is good for us. There are lots of paths and cut-throughs you may not know about in the town; have a look at our website: https://www.gettingaroundexmouth.org/ or Email for more details.
Look out for our Active Travel Day coming soon (date TBC post lockdown)!
Launched in 2019 by EDDC, Wild Exmouth helps enhance the environment of the town, engaging residents with green spaces and improving access to nature. Transition Exmouth are on the steering group and partner on community events, volunteer days, campaigns and mapping projects. Find out more on Facebook or the Wild Exmouth website
Many of our members want to respond to Planning Applications, but find the process can be unwieldy and confusing. Transition members, Health Nikels and Jan Gannoway have written an excellent guide which helps you link your appeal to evidence, in law or local policy, to support and strengthen your argument and be a voice for nature.
If you'd like to find out more about how to respond to planning proposals please
