Climate Action Frodsham is the current working name for Frodsham Transition Initiative which began in January 2012.
We are a group of local people who are concerned about climate change and the effect it is already having on the lives of people and wildlife locally and globally.
We are also affiliated to Friends of the Earth.
The purpose of CAF is to help the community of Frodsham live a more sustainable way of life and to become happier and more resilient in the face of global uncertainties.
We help local projects get started, talk to people at events, give talks to local groups and schools. Organise workshops and green days. Send out a monthly newsletter usually by email. Produce information on what action we can all take and encourage people to join us.

Going into 2024 we are continuing to run workshops on how to use thermal imaging cameras and reduce heat loss from homes.
With grant money from Frodsham Town Council we have bought a thermal imaging camera for local people to borrow.
Our focus for 2024 is Travel and Transport. Keep an eye on our website for details.
