OPEN HOUSES : Sunday 15th March, 13:00 to 17:00

Concerned about climate change? Wondering what you can do? The action that will have the biggest impact is to reduce your use of fossil fuels, so :

  • Can you improve your house insulation?
  • Can you replace your car with an electric car which has a similar range?
  • Can you replace your oil boiler with something with low carbon emissions?

The answer to all of the above is “yes” – the technology is improving in leaps and bounds, so come and talk to those who have already installed it and are using it. They will tell you the pros and cons, the costs and their real experience of these technologies.
