 Following input from the community at last week's meeting, Transition Scilly will concentrate on these projects in 2018:

Community Orchard

  • Improving the management of the Orchard

  • Increasing the number of people visiting

  • Improve amenities for the Orchard

  • Increase the reach of the orchard to include fruit trees in gardens that people need help pruning/planting/harvesting

  • Celebrate key points in the orchard year

  • Provide easily accessible advice on orchard management


  • Support measures to reduce plastic waste

  • Look at opportunities to turn waste in to resources, especially waste wood


  • Raise awareness of water issues on Scilly

  • Look at the feasibility of water fountains in public places


  • Encourage the creation of a car club for locals on St Mary's using electric vehicles run on low carbon electricity

Outreach and engagement

  • Increase the number of articles in local magazines/papers and on websites

  • Improve communication, including a redesigned and updated website

  • Engage with and provide representation to key documents, such as the Local Plan

  • Celebrate the achievements of all community groups and voluntary work

If you would like to get involved in some of these projects please get in touch on Facebook, send us an email or just look out for more news about upcoming projects and events.

Our thanks to those people that turned out last week and to the Scillonian Club for hosting us.

An orchard year

Here are lots of great photos of 2017 in the community orchard at
Trenoweth on St Mary's. It's been a very productive year and the whole
site has looked great. Here's to a great 2018!

Planning for 2018

We have got to the time of the year when it's time to take stock, celebrate what we've done and look forward to the next year. We've organised a get together at the Scillonian Club on Tuesday 12th December at 8pm.

We hope to see new and familiar faces, discuss what we've done and welcome new ideas and enthusiasm! If you can't make the meeting but would like to get involved, have questions or suggestion please email
