Transition Buxton Event at Poole’s Cavern

Come and learn about keeping your home warm

On Saturday 19th January Transition Buxton will be holding a course on saving energy in your home. Although the course is primarily intended for people wishing to conduct energy surveys it could also be of interest to anyone who cares about the environment – and keeping warm! The course will be in the Poole’s Cavern School Room and will run from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon with a break for lunch (and, of course, Poole’s Cavern Café serves some excellent meals).

If you think you might be interested in attending please get in touch with Charles Huff on 0203 290 7227 or email him at

Heritage Heroes Evening

“The Buxton Civic Association were delighted to see the positive response to our idea of celebrating the many individuals and groups who work tirelessly to help conserve and share the outstanding human and natural heritage of our town. It was excellent that so many people came to Poole’s Cavern to hear about the often unsung work of these people and to witness them receiving our BCA Heritage Hero awards. We hope this will encourage others to join in with this important work and maybe put themselves in the running for our Heritage Heroes Awards in the future.” Peter Phillipson Acting Chair Buxton Civic Association
