  • Riverside Road.  This group made loads of changes to their homes and habits whilst it was running, and then decided to launch a Riverside Road Film Club!

Riverside Road

  • Our Wheathampstead group was more of a Transition Village.  They have gradually made wide-ranging changes like draft-proofing and LED lights, including one household  installing a biomass boiler.  They are going to keep going with shared veg gardening and a joint bee-hive, and are researching community energy.
