New Community Shop Opening in Wigginton
Wigginton's Community Shop opens on 1st December, with its official opening on 7th December.  It includes a cafe where the coffee will be served in compostable cups.  Why not give the shop a try? We wish this venture every success.   Remember the old adage "use it or lose it" (which applies equally to shops and services in your own town).

Meantime, the community shop in Wilstone goes from strength to strength.


 
Christmas Tree Carbon Footprint Real Tree vs Artificial Tree

Christmas is coming.  Some of us will be thinking about buying a Christmas tree, or maybe dusting off an artificial tree.  Thinking about carbon footprint, should we buy a real tree or an artificial tree?  The BBC asked John Kazer at the Carbon Trust this question.  You can read his reply at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-38129835
 
Thermal imaging is on offer again this autumn and winter by our volunteers.  Thermal imaging identifies where heat and thus £££'s are being lost from buildings. 

Anyone living in HP23 postcode area can ask for a survey, whether for your house, or a public building. 

Renters can have a survey as well because there are often some simple things you can do as a renter to reduce your energy bill.

Surveys are done midweek evenings, and followed up by an electronic report which suggests practical ways to reduce heat loss that are specific to your building.  We request a discretionary donation of £15 for the survey and report.

Are you or a friend/neighbour interested?

Cruise Ships Powered by Waste Fish

No, your diary is not on the blink!  It is not 1st April.  Apparently, the Norwegian expedition cruise line Hurtigruten plans to convert six of its cruise ships to run off biogas made from residues from fish processing factories.  Read more about it at

Let's hope they are also sensitive to the creatures that their passengers go to see.....
