Breathing Spaces In Transition

Posted on 29 November 2021

The directors and staff of TTW are absolutely delighted to welcome Breathing Spaces into the TTW “family”.

Those involved in the excellent and inspirational Breathing Spaces, have recently come to the decision to cease to be a Community Interest Company in their own right and will instead become a project under the umbrella of Transition Town Worthing CIC.

In 2022 Breathing Spaces, a TTW project,  will continue to offer volunteer sessions at the Maybridge Keystone Centre flower farm and woodland garden in Worthing, and also at Dankton Lane Barnyard, Sompting. They will still produce beautiful sustainably-grown cut-flowers and they will continue to develop the barnyard for wildlife including wild bees. The project will continue to welcome people with learning difficulties, mental health challenges, refugees, and women in recovery from trauma.

We all believe we will be stronger working together at a time of climate and ecological crisis when people will increasingly need to support their wellbeing through connection to nature at the same time as working to restore nature.

Claire and Lisa have been a key part of our organisation since the very beginning, so this feels like a very appropriate next step for us all. Breathing Spaces will continue to operate autonomously but, like Plastic Free Worthing and Cortis Ave Wildlife Garden, will also sit under the TTW umbrella – very soon.

More details to follow in the near future as this announcement is hot off the press – watch this space…
