The Parish Council is currently engaged with, and is investigating funding for Solar panels and Electric Vehicle charging points for the Parish Hall.  It is also investigating other initiatives that would help reduce the carbon footprint of our Parish.

Living in a rural location, without good transport links, the average carbon footprint of our households is potentially higher than the footprint of someone living in a town or city who uses public transport regularly.  However, there are still many ways we may be able to limit our use of fossil fuels and our impact on the environment.  The Parish Council, through its Working Group is currently looking for possible dates and venues for an open meeting where we can exchange ideas as to how we can try and achieve carbon zero as a community. Please check this website monthly, and also look out for future announcements in the Parish Newsletter.
