Friday 22nd March - Saturday 8th Jun: Water usage survey opens

online 10:00
The water group is keen to find out what water saving measures we can promote to help alleviate the problem of water shortage. This last winter has been wet but droughts are becoming frequent. Summer 2019 was particularly bad. Hence a survey: what are we already doing and can we encourage others to do it too? Please fill in the survey - and you can enter a prize draw for £30 shopping vouchers. Tell your friends and family - we all use water, not just in Cambridge.

Friday 24th May: Energy Group - Shared Solar and Micro-grids

Marmalade Lane Common House and online 20:00-21:30 add to google calendar
The topic for May is Shared Solar and Micro-grids. We know that it's difficult to use all your own solar energy, especially without batteries. Can you use more by sharing with your neighbours? Or if you don't have your own roof space, can you build a shared system with your neighbours? Is it a good idea, and can it be done "fairly"? We'll look at the technology, costs and benefits. And other ways to get renewable energy without your own roof space, such as Ripple Energy. Chris W will lead and we will meet at the Marmalade Land Community and also online. Please ask Nicola for the zoom link.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all. However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations. You can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Thank you!
