TTW Community Event Exploring Air Pollution

This event will be held at CREW 8/9 South St Worthing BN11 3AL
Tues 9th May at 2pm Admission free

Air pollution is damaging our environment and our health. Between 28,000 and 36,000 early deaths are attributable to air pollution each year in the UK. Road transport is responsible for 80% of roadside NO2 pollution where legal limits are being broken. Urgent and increased action by governments is necessary to reduce air pollution to safer levels. In the transport sector, governments must be set ambitious modal shift targets underpinned by significant leadership and investment. Governments must do more to help people leave their cars at home for everyday journeys and make more sustainable trips (by foot, cycle or on public transport).

Breathing Spaces at CREW – 12th April

Our next Bread & Roses evening at CREW, 8/9 South St, Worthing BN11 3AL on April 12th, 7-9pm is going to be about Permaculture. We’ll have at least one guest, Pauline from TTW, and we’ll try to introduce you to this fascinating subject (in 2 hours!).

Permaculture is about designing resilience, so it’s not just about gardens and growing, and really it will change the way you think about everything! We’ll have our usual mindful beginning and a look at pattern in nature, there’ll be local examples and interaction, and even a cuppa.

Book a place via CREW’s Eventbrite booking system:

Sustainability Map of Worthing Online Event

Having done a soft launch of our Sustainable Worthing Map for New Year, we are now contacting all the organisations involved to check entries and to invite them to join us for our next free mapping event (kindly organised by SECA) on Thurs 9th Feb at 6.30pm, details of which can be found here:

You are all most welcome to sign up for this if you’d like to find out more about the map, how to use it and how to create your own map. As it’s an online (Zoom) event, we have more flexibility with numbers so do join us if you wish.

Seed Swap Event 2023 Update

A few people have asked us when our Seed Swap event is going to be. Due to reducing capacity, both in terms of time, energy and money, we have decided to just do it as part of the regular Sustainable Market and have a couple of stalls for our seeds and plants to swap or buy.

So please do package up any seeds you may have saved, clearly marking them with what they are, and when they were saved and tuck them safely away ready for swapping at this event, which will be on Sunday 5th March from 9.30am – 1.30pm. More details nearer the time.

Winter Solstice Celebration – 21st Dec

Amanda Waring has agreed to lead a Solstice celebration at Coast Cafe on Weds. 21st December and we will be there from 5.30-8pm if any of you would like to join us during that time.

If you’d like to come, there will be a fire pit so please bring some wood to put on the fire if you can.

The ceremony will be at 6.30pm and last around 20 minutes. Coast will be open for people to purchase hot soup and a roll as well as drinks and light snacks from 5.30pm, and they have agreed to extend opening hours until 9pm if anyone wants to stick around for a while after the fire. We are hoping we might have a couple of surprises as well, but still trying to organise that.

We’ll post the event on the home page of our website and also on our Facebook group if you want to check anything on the day or just before. If the weather is really bad, it will still go ahead as we can be inside the cafe but may have to play how we do the ceremony a bit by ear if it’s raining hard.

Sustainable Christmas Market – Sun 4th Dec

The next Sustainable Market will be on Sunday 4th December from 9.30am-1.30pm at Freedom Works car park – opposite the Assembly Hall, Stoke Abbott Road, Worthing, BN11 1HJ.

The last one had to be cancelled due to high winds and heavy rain so we hope this one will be able to go ahead, as we have lots of plants available and various bric a brac items, as well as Twitten Maps.

Sustainable Market – Sunday 6th November

Sunday 6th November – 9.30am-2pm, Freedom Works car park – opposite the Assembly Hall, Stoke Abbott Road, Worthing, BN11 1HJ

Come and support this lovely monthly event in the centre of Worthing. We will be there with plants and bric a brac in exchange for donations and ready to chat about what’s going on locally.

Come and help support your local traders, localism is the way forward!

We often need volunteers to come along and help at the Sustainable Market so if you’d be happy to help man the stall for an hour or so, please email Pauline at [email protected]. It’s good fun and you get to meet some really interesting people, including the other lovely stallholders.

Green Dreams Festival

Sunday 25th September, Field Place Manor House, Barns and Grounds – just off The Boulevard, Worthing BN13 1NP – 10.30am-4pm

After a year of planning and organising, we have finally arrived at a point when all the stall layouts are done (for both wet and dry scenarios, but we do so hope it will be dry as it’s so much nicer) and the workshop, talk and entertainment programme is complete (we hope!). Please see copy of rough draft – which will give you some idea of what to expect on the day.

We do hope you can come along to this delightful, fun filled family event – showcasing local green groups, performers, artists, makers and producers. There will be street food and drink available onsite and a very wide range of things to do for all ages. If there is a particular workshop you’d like to take part in, you might like to arrive fairly early to get your name down for it, as these could prove to be very popular. We hope to see you there!
