Climate Action and Re-Betchworth

Rewilding, recycling, reducing, reusing, restoring, rethinking, reinventing, reconnecting

Re-Betchworth is the village initiative formed to mitigate the effects of climate change and create a greener, more bio-diverse and sustainable local environment.  We work to enhance our own lives and well-being now, and those of generations to come.

Much has been achieved already:

  • A core team has formed to improve biodiversity, both in our gardens and communal spaces.
  • 120 bird boxes have been assembled and put up, along with some bug hotels.
  • A wildflower strip has been established on the Green.
  • We’ve held five online educational talks and built a website.
  • We’re working on making our local footpaths more accessible and held our first village cycle ride.

Forward plans include:

  • Establishing a Jubilee Woodland
  • Building teams to get a Forest/Outdoor School going.
  • Sharing more information on domestic energy options, and e-cars.
  • Looking at waste reduction and recycling.
  • Bringing our village apple orchard back into production.
  • Encouraging active travel: improving our walking and family-safe cycling options.
  • Working up the many other ideas that emerged in village discussions.

There’s much more to do, so please join us on this journey.  To contact the core team, please email
