Home and Building Energy: Reducing Energy Use and Saving Money

Join Melinda Tomkins, Community Champion, Act On Energy.
Are you a household currently struggling to manage your energy use and want to know more about how to take practical steps to feel more in control?
Has the recent cost of living crisis worried you?
The pressures of the last 2 years have left more households than ever struggling to pay their energy bills. Having a better understanding of fuel poverty, and what steps can be taken to tackle it, could help to support you through the current crisis and feel more confident and in control of energy use.

Green Travel: Cheaper, Better, Easier

Join Councillor Matt Jenkins for a common-sense session aimed at how to travel greener in the light of the cost-of-living and energy crisis.
We will look at the relative impact and costs of different modes of transports, options and solutions, including the use of electric bikes, cars – for hire or sharing, walking, public transport, and holidays abroad. Many people are just not aware of how well electric cars, bikes and vehicles perform and the session will include the chance to try out electric bikes around College Green.


Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund as part of its ‘Together for our Planet’ initiative, the events are free to attend.
