Who we are

Transition Llambed Development Trust was formed from Transition Llambed a branch of the Transition Network, a movement of communities uniting to build a sustainable future. Primarily formed to perform the daily running of the Victoria Hall, we oversee the function of a diverse set of community projects.

What we believe

We believe working together as a community, we can unleash our collective genius to have a greater impact together than we can as individuals.

Our Vision

Our vision is to develop and promote positive possibilities by using creative ways to engage and involve people in building resilient communities. In the process we introduce communities to alternative ways to create a sustainable future without the use of fossil fuels.

What we aim to achieve

“Increasing opportunities and developing a sustainable future for Lampeter’s residents by building a resilient community”.

General Aims and Objectives:
