about


Who are we? What do we do?

Downton Green Group is part of the New Forest Transition Hub.  We are a small group that meets on the last Wednesday of every month (except December) in the White Horse at 8pm.

You are welcome to come and join us to share ideas on how to promote a better local environment and sustainability more generally.  Either just turn up for a meeting, or email contact@downtongreengroup.org.uk.

We run events in Downton on various aspects of sustainable living - Seedy Sunday, Apple Day, Green Energy Day.   On Saturday  7 October we will be running a BEE FRIENDLY FAYRE to help raise the profile of the importance of wild bees for pollination.  See Events and News for more information.  We also aim to make our voice heard through articles in local magazines/newsletters, responses to news or opinion items in the Salisbury Journal, and comments on local planning applications.

 We are non profit making. Any monies we make are donated to local community/environmental projects. In previous years these have included the village defibrillators and the provision of nest boxes for bats and owls.  Recently we gave donations to the Pantry Partnership, Alabare Trust, Downton Primary School for the their Forest School project and the Purple Community Fund (a charity run by the Downton Baptist Church to aid the disadvantaged in the Philippines).
