Village Day

Ashtead Village Day was a really enjoyable day – the sun shone, there was  great community feel and we met lots of lovely people!

We have now emailed everyone who left us an email address, so if you haven’t had the invitation to Transition Drinks tomorrow, (Monday 14th June, 8pm at The Brewery),  we may not have your correct email address, so please just add your name and email address on our newsletter page or get in contact and we’ll put that right!

The results of the little survey we did alongside the free raffle were very interesting. Watch this space on 20th June to see if you have won  a prize! 40 people took part and a whopping 83% of you say you recycle as much as possible! Nearly 70% say their loft is well insualted and 65% are interested in saving energy in the home. See the table below for the full results.

There was a good number of people interested in The Garden Share Scheme too.

If you would like to get involved in a Transition Action Group focusing on any of these issues, let us know!
