Farewell to HoTT

In May 2022 we held our HoTT Transition Party to mark the closure of HoTT and to celebrate its achievements. The event was well attended and included a brief AGM in which we voted unanimously on the resolution to dissolve HoTT  and transfer its remaining assets to HVCAP Charity (see the HoTT 2022 AGM minutes and the HoTT final accounts (Provisional at AGM)). This transfer seemed fitting as HVCAP Charity is the support arm of the Holme Valley Climate Action Partnership and will be there to support the remaining active HoTT interest groups that have elected to become independent.

These groups are:

  • HoTT Edibles,
  • Bums on Saddles,
  • Repair Cafe,
  • HoTT Energy and
  • HoTT Waste & Recycling.

If you wish to join one of the groups, or become actively involved in HVCAP Charity as a volunteer, they will be pleased to hear  from you – please email hvcapmail@gmail.com or call 07536 982503.

Would you let us know if you’d like your details added to the Holme Valley Climate Action mailing list to say in touch with local climate action. HoTT cannot do this without your permission. You can do this by emailing HVCAP Charity as above or clicking the link below to add your name directly to the mailing list.

Much has been happening locally in terms of climate action:

The Holme Valley Parish Council continue to promote such action, through the work of their Climate Emergency Co-ordinator and the  Climate Emergency Standing Committee. Last month, as part of the Jubilee celebrations, members of the Standing Committee gave presentations in local schools on  climate change,  distributed bee bombs, introduced a poster competition and launched a tree planting initiative.

The Council’s Climate Emergency website describes resources available and provides information relating to local climate action in the Holme Valley

The recently formed Bright Green Business Fund, sponsored by HoTT Wind, opened this year and the independent panel have made their decisions and their grants have been distributed to smal business for saving carbon. To find out more about these funds and who can apply, visit the HoTTWind@Longley website.   The Bright Green Community Trust, similarly set up by HoTT Wind and and administered by One Community, met recently and made decisions for this year.  To find out more about the fund and who can apply see the BGCT fund website.

Growing projects in the Valley  have been flourishing including the HoTT Edible garden in Holmfirth; Earthworks – New Mill Community Garden; Cinderhills Park; Holmfirth Library sensory garden; and Honley Community Growers. For more information contact: hvcapmail@gmail.com
