Energy saving workshops in Bishopston, Cotham and Redland

  • Are you fed up with a cold, draughty home?
  • Do you want to save money on bills?
  • Perhaps you don’t know where to start an energy saving project that will meet your needs….?

Then come to a taster session to explore how a short course, organised jointly by community groups Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Energy Group and MakeyourhomeEco, can help.

The cost of the taster session is £5.00, refunded if you sign up to the full course.

Sessions are tailored to both home owners and tenants, and cover low cost and seasonal measures, tips for choosing appliances, understanding the jargon, either to develop your own project for your current or future home, speak to installers or get support and grants.

It’s designed to be enjoyable as well as informative, featuring games and hands on activities, plus a series of worksheets that focus you on your own priorities and situation and will help you start saving money right away.

“In the immediate term it has provided access to resources and practical ideas (some of which are very low cost) which I can implement.  It has also given me insight into more major projects that I might undertake in the future when I have capital.”
