Our projects and groups
Under the umbrella of Sustainable Tring are a range of projects and groups run by volunteers from our community.
Repair Cafe Tring
At our monthly Repair Cafe, we offer a free repair service to help reduce waste. Our brilliant volunteers have the skills and tools to help you fix your broken items and get them back in working order.
Tring Community Garden
Our award winning Community Garden in Duckmore is a wonderful green space for all the community. A group of volunteers hold monthly gardening sessions.
We want to see our town develop sustainably. We believe we should use our combined power as a community to hold councils and corporations to account and to bring about sustainable change wherever possible. We are currently engaged in contributing to Dacorum’s Local Plan. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more.
Our volunteers offer a range of services to help you save energy and reduce your bills. During winter months, we offer thermal imaging assessments to show you where your home could be losing heat. We also loan out power meter plugs from Tring Library so you can monitor the energy used by your electricity appliances
Tidy Tring Team
A street cleaning initiative that arranges monthly litter-picking in different parts of the town. It is a great way to meet neighbours and make friends, while also helping to keep our roads and green spaces clean.
Hedges in Tring
A community group dedicated to preserving and protecting hedges in Tring. Volunteers are surveying the hedges in the town, noting the native species and monitoring biodiversity. The aim is to calculate how much carbon is being sequestered.
Plastic Free Tring
An initiative which seeks to reduce plastic waste in Tring.
