Welcome to Sustainable Dawlish (Transition)
Dawlish Walking Festival Sept 24th to October 2nd, 2022
We're delighted to be back thanks to the generosity of our new sponsor Oakcliff Holiday Park, supported by Dawlish Town Council and volunteers. Many walks are led by community organisations and individuals who generously give their time during the festival. There is a variety of walks on offer with different special interest groups, so have a good look through our programme.
The Principal Sponsor of the Dawlish Walking Festival 2022 is Oakcliff Holiday Park. Oakcliff is an 8-acre holiday park in a prime location in Devon’s premier holiday resort of Dawlish Warren, just 600 yards from the beautiful Blue Flag beach, sand dunes and 500-acre nature reserve. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Oakcliff has the David Bellamy Silver Award for its environmental qualities and the Four Star “Excellent” Award from the English Tourism Council for its high park standards.

The Home Energy Saving Forum, The Strand Centre, Dawlish March 12th
We estimated that we had over 60 people drop in for free Energy advice. Among them were some people who were really struggling already - even before April when the energy price cap will go up by 50%. Devon Communities Together who help people in fuel poverty were pleased to have 7 contacts to follow up. As a result, Exeter Community Energy are going to hold drop in regular free Energy Advice sessions at The Strand Centre in the future. We have had positive feedback from the participants and visitors, thank you to everyone who supported the event. For more information see here
