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.



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:


Tuesday, 11 June – evening field trip

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. Please bring a plate of food to share for our picnic.

Please contact Jo Smith Oliver for further information and bookings.
