** Press Release

** Two prominent local environment groups have joined forces

** Transition Town Market Harborough [TTMH] and the newly launched Market Harborough Environment Group [MHEG] – with its Love Where You Live and Morsbag initiatives – are two grass roots groups aiming to impact positively on the local environment. In combining resources each has renewed their commitment to working with the community to make a more sustainable Market Harborough.

The move – celebrated at the AGM on Saturday – is especially welcome because MHEG – formerly the Harborough Improvement Team [HIT] Environment Group has had a period of uncertainty following the winding up of HIT.

Darren Woodiwiss from TTMH said:

“We are delighted to welcome the Environment Group to Transition Town Market Harborough. There is a natural synergy in our aims and by working together we can both be more effective.”

Mary Danks from the newly formed MHEG said:

“We are very excited to be working alongside TTMH as we enter a new era in our recycling and litter action work.”

** Transition Town Market Harborough runs local community led projects to rebuild local resilience and sustainability. It was founded in 2007 and is the 22^nd member of the Transition Town Network.
