Welcome to Cuckmere Valley Transition

Local solutions to global problems.


Who are we?

We are a group of local folk from The Cuckmere Valley in East Sussex, excited by the ideas and actions arising from Transition Initiatives world wide.


What do we do

Our aim is to find inspirational and accessible ways of increasing resilience amongst our community, in the face of Climate Change and Cheap Oil.


Much has been achieved

  • We have raised awareness in the valley by holding many film shows and open space activities to gather ideas.
  • We take part in the local festival with many “Transition” activities and much helpful information.
  • Many of us are in the process of retro-fitting our houses with energy saving materials


We have had clothes swap shops, planted trees, celebrated the changing seasons, with local food and cheer.

We distribute Positive News.

We helped the local school to design a beautiful cloth bag.

We have our own logo.

Community allotments are being re-planted and re-planned

A Transition library is being compiled with Books and DVD's on loan.

We hold CVT meetings every fourth Thursday of the month.


We need to do more, much more. Petrol prices continue to rise. The climate becomes increasingly erratic world wide. There is so much we can do. Together we can achieve so much. We need your ideas and input.
