Turn Lyme Green promotes sustainable living in Lyme Regis. Set up in 2007, we engage the community in environmental issues. We meet regularly, plan campaigns and events, and have fun. Collaboration with other environmental groups in West Dorset and beyond is an important part of keeping everyone informed and up to date. TLG acts local, thinks global.
LATEST CAMPAIGN NEWS: PLASTIC FREE LYME REGIS
SUCCESS! In June 2018 Lyme Regis gained title, Plastic Free Lyme Regis, from the Plastic Free Communities initiative of Surfers Against Sewage. Lyme Regis is the first town in Dorset – and 24th in the country out of over 300 applying – to receive this accolade. Local businesses, organisations and residents are all taking steps to reduce single-use plastics. For more information, visit our new web site for Plastic Free Lyme Regis:
Holyford Wood Walk
Tuesday, 14 May
7pm Seaton Tower layby
Graham Jones will lead a ‘slow walk around a mature woodland’ for our meeting in May. You will need to let us know if you are coming on this walk so we can forward details of the meeting location. Please contact Jo Smith Oliver email@example.com Everyone who walked with Graham last year at Trinity Hill loved every minute; this will be a very special occasion too.
And don’t forget that Graham is also leading some seasonal history walks at Trill Farm. These explore the medieval landscape around the Farm. The next one is May 22nd, 11am – 12.30pm, a free event.
JUNE: CARYMOOR EDUCATION CENTRE – Somerset
Tuesday, 11 June – evening field trip
You may recall that we had to cancel this outing last June because not enough people were able to go. Many were disappointed so we are trying again this year. Carymoor is an environmental education and nature conservation charity providing inspirational outdoor learning for all ages and communities. It was set up in 1996 on 100 acres of capped landfill and since then has transformed itself into a haven for wildlife and sustainability. Based near Castle Carey, it is built on an old closed landfill site. There is an active one nearby so our guide will talk about the interesting juxtaposition of sustainability and waste.
It is just over an hour away from Lyme Regis and car shares will be arranged. To make sure this outing goes ahead, please contact Jo Smith Oliver for further information and bookings.
