We host events that promote sustainable living and encourage activities to inspire positive change for our local and global environment.
Our areas of interest include advice on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and wildlife-friendly gardening.
We aim to support local shops, promote local skills, and work for sustainable transport solutions (safe routes to school, electric bike try-out events). We hold our famous Swap-it days twice a year that – for more than 10 years now help to reduce waste. And we collaborate with the Parish Council and Transition Haslemere on activities that protect the local environment.
Chiddgreen organises talks and debates, arranges events to swap and share local skills, and acts as a network point, connecting like-minded people and groups with others who share our values.
Membership is open to all: if you live or work in Chiddingfold and share our interests, you are welcome to join. We don’t have a membership fee, and most of our events are also usually free, to encourage wide participation.
We count our membership by the number of people who subscribe to our News and Events email. Please sign up!
The group is run and managed by a small committee led by Jane Devlin. We meet periodically -email for more details. firstname.lastname@example.org
Funding comes from donations and sales. There is no regular funding.
Please support the Chiddgreen ‘smoothie stall’ at Chiddingfold Village Festival in June. Take a ride on the famous Chiddgreen Smoothie Bike and enjoy a well earned refreshing drink. And become a member of the exclusive Chiddgreen Smoothie-operator club!
We usually ask for donations for attending our other events. The money is spent on hiring local venues for our events. Any surplus funds are donated to charities with a local connection whose purposes are aligned with the aim of Chiddgreen.

If it’s to do with the environment and our community then it’s a subject for Chiddgreen!
