Transition Rayleigh/Hockley/Wickford/Rawreth/Rochford District?

Rochford (District in Transition) on Facebook with 18 fans

It all starts that simple – a group of interested people comes together and starts talking about setting up a Transition Initiative and then it goes where it wants to go.


Here are two short videos on the 12 steps of Transition. Video 1 and Video 2

“A Rayleigh resident is seeking to form a Rayleigh / Rochford District Transition group. If you live in the Rochford District Council area or have relatives or friends that may be interested, please contact Stuart at stuart.burrell@googlemail.com

Martin got in contact with Transition Westcliff. As a resident of Wickford he was interested if there are any locals wanting to chat about setting up Transition Wickford. If you are one of them – get in contact.

Martin’s email is mfargher@btinternet.com

Interested in a chat about Transition Hockley?

Rawreth – PAUL TRATHEN <paul.trathen@btopenworld.com>

There are around 227 official Transition Initiatives in the world with a few hundreds of communities interested in starting their own one. Transition Westcliff was the first one in Essex but recently we’ve been in talks with Transition Maldon and Transition Writtle. It is great to find out someone is interested in starting one in Rayleigh/Rochford District area. They could well use your time and support so get in contact to keep things moving. And enjoy.

    I am trying to put the core group together. I did send an email a few days ago but it may have been blocked. I have resent.

    I’ve given you a plug at



  4. Hi Stuart

    I have already given a short presentation to the parish council over here in Rawreth about wanting to get a Transition Group together, so am delighted to discover you putting some energy (!!!) behind this also…
    I would be very interested to get involved in what you are doing.


    PS FWIW, I already do a certain amount of teaching (in a professional capacity) around sustainability and Peak Oil issues – I would be glad to expand on this, is useful.

    I have just picked up this thread and am interested in these Transition initiatives. I live in Wickford and have been wondering what is happening in the area and whether it would be practicable to establish a Transition Town. Maybe a single Town would initially be more robust.
