Stroud Community TV is a Transition Stroud project. Here’s what was written about this film which was made by Patrick Shepherd of Elephant Song:

Transition Stroud is a volunteer-led network for local people and groups working on the transition to a locally-based low carbon lifestyle. We began in 2006, and are one of over 1000 similar initiatives around the world developing practical answers to the question: How can our community respond to the challenges, and opportunities, of Peak Oil and Climate Change? See our website for more information:, or find us on facebook (…?) and twitter (

This film showcases some of our projects and things that are going on in Stroud that are part of a wider movement of ‘Stroud in Transition’, in particular:
StroudCo – who as well as offering locally produced food for collection as explained in the film can deliver, see:
Stroud Brewery –
Fix It For Free cafe events occur every season, or so, email to find out the date of the next event
Transition Stroud organises annual events called Open Eco-Renovation Homes and Open Edible Gardens, enabling members of the public to be inspired and ask questions about ways they have made their own living arrangements more sustainable.
Links to further information about these events is available on the website.
We welcome anyone who would like to get involved!

    Illuminating film about a problem that can no longer be ignored. Solution focussed and nicely edited and filmed. Covering climate change transport food and pushing for a more community orientated approach using examples of some local projects which are part of Transition Stroud movement. Could have made more use of music track to heighten impact but gets point across simply and effectively.
