Projects and groups
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.
We want to see our town develop sustainably. We believe we should use our combined power to hold councils and corporations to account and to bring about sustainable change wherever possible. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more.
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.
Look our for our occasional Film Nights, with a focus on the environment and the climate emergency. Watch a thought-provoking film, have a discussion, and socialise in a welcoming space. See announcements on the Sustainable Tring Facebook page.
Tring Community Garden
The award winning Community Garden in Duckmore Lane is a wonderful green space for all the community. A group of volunteers hold gardening sessions on the second Sunday of each month.
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 energy used by your electrical appliances.
Hedges in Tring
A 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.
