Welcome to the home of Marsden & Slaithwaite Transition Towns (MASTT).

We are the 28th Official Transition Town in the world!

We are a group of volunteers from within the community who work together to create a hub in which fantastic green projects can happen!

We have already inspired a number of successful Transition Businesses (Green Valley Grocer, The Handmade Bakery and Edibles), we even have a Transition Church (St Bartholomews in Marsden).

We would love to set up more subgroups with YOUR help! Just get in touch by emailing us via this website. Please take a look around and email us if you would like to get involved or have an idea for a project - info@mastt.org.uk
