How do I get involved?

Here you will find opportunities to come together to do something to support our community and reduce our impact on the planet.

Transition Crich meet every second Tuesday of the month from 7.30 pm at The Crich Comrades Club. 

Come along to see what's on offer and add your voice.


Wild Flower Walk

Sunday, 16 June, 11.00 am, Crich Market Place

Join us for a two hour walk around the beautiful countryside in Crich, enjoy the views and discover more about the wild flowers in this area as we share our collective knowledge.

The walk includes a hill, but no one will get left behind and we will have plenty of stops to appreciate the flowers and views. Towards the end of our walk there will be an opportunity to stop off at Crich Stand Tea Room for refreshments.

There is parking in and around the market place. We will be meeting by the bus shelter from 10.50 am, ready to set off at 11.00am.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear and if the weather is hot and sunny, don’t forget to pack some water, shades, hat and sun cream!
