News from Sustainable Harwell
With major new commitments to tackle climate change made internationally this weekend it seems timely to also let you know a bit more about our ongoing efforts to help here in Harwell.
The tree-planting group have arranged a planting session to take place this coming Sat and Sun Dec 19th and 20th at the village school. The project leaders would welcome extra help so if you can spare an hour or two for this worthwhile activity please let us know. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be in touch with more details.

Installing low-carbon heating systems…
We held the December meeting last week with our guest speaker focussing on how to go about installing low carbon heating systems in homes. There were some great questions and an interesting discussion afterwards. With significant government grants available, it seems like a good time to consider the options.
If you missed the talk we recorded the presentation so if you would like to watch it please email us at email@example.com and we will send you a link.
We also provided a short update at the meeting about all the other activities that are going on in Harwell both at the group and the project level. You can see a summary on the web-site by clicking here.
Next meeting date…
The next group meeting will be on Weds February 3rd starting at 7:30 pm. More details will follow.
Harwell Parish Council – Climate Emergency
The Parish Council have recently joined many other organisations in declaring a climate emergency. This is good news and we hope that it will provide a strong focus for further action in the parish. As part of this the council have requested help in tackling the problem and a few of us are currently working on some possible activities for consideration. We are aiming to share these ideas more widely shortly.
If anyone would like to be more involved with Parish Council you may have seen that there is a vacancy for a Councillor right now so if you think that’s something for you please let them know.
There is a lot more going on so please do take a look at our website for more information on the projects we’re involved with.
With our very best Christmas and New Year wishes.
