The Action Group will co-ordinate ongoing projects and oversee new ones that could be adopted by our community organisation.

All members are welcome to join in... along with anyone who wants to get involved, or has an idea for a potential new project for Buxton Town Team.

​If you'd like to join the  Action Group meeting, please email action@buxtontownteam.org

We'll then send over details of the Zoom link.

Keep Buxton Buzzing!
Despite normal activities being put on hold planning is continuing to 'Keep Buxton Buzzing'.

This project will see native wildflowers and a wildflower meadow planted at Ashwood Park.

The aim is to increase biodiversity and attract pollinating insects. Funding has been secured to pay for the wildflower seeds; the hire of tools to carry-out the work; and some educational provision.

Details on when and how you can get involved will be made available at a later date.

Buxton to Matlock walking and cycling routes

To add to the work, we’ve been doing on the Buxton Safer Walk & Ride Network, members of the BTT Access, Parking, Traffic and Transport team have also been working on ideas for new walking and cycling routes from Buxton to Matlock.  A nine minute video has been produced to gather opinions, which you can view by following this link: https://youtu.be/yVDjUoUZ-mQ
 
Before you watch:
  • As, at this stage, the video is just to gauge interest in developing the Trails, the detailed maps are not included.
  • When you have watched, please either respond using the QR code provided at the end or go to:
  • Feel free to forward the video link to anyone you think might be interested.
  • The video link will be put on the website soon but, for now, only Town Team Members and a few others are previewing.
The Proposal ties in with the APTT work on sustainable and active travel and the development of the whole town Sustainable Travel Plan – due out for consultation very soon.  

So brew up, feet up watch and let us know what you think!
Slopes Team

It feels like Spring has sprung and the Slopes Team are ready to get back to work once they can.

Since it first started with the aim of improving the look of the Slopes the team has  expanded and developed its focus to take in other green spaces around town.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid lockdown its efforts had to be suspended but will resume as soon as restrictions are lifted - watch this space for more information!
Buxton Market CIC 
One of the early projects which the Town Team five years ago supported, through a loan, was the setting up of Buxton Market CIC. Directors are pleased to report that the loan has now been repaid.

The market is one of the few markets which has continued to open through all the Covid lock downs and has seen an increase in stalls over the last year.

It is now looking to recruit a Team Leader to run the setting up and taking down of market stalls on saturdays and Tuesdays. This is a paid role.

If you - or anyone you know - likes early mornings and working outdoors,
in Buxton weather,
please email: admin@buxtonmarkets.co.uk for a further information.
