SEPTEMBER 28th & 29th EVENT
Our third citywide open homes event has just taken place. Enthusisatic visitors went to meet, listen and talk to householders who have made their homes energy smart, more comfortable, cleaner for the environment and cheaper to heat.
We will be looking at the feedback and numbers very soon but all indications are that this was another succesful event. Updates will be posted here this week.
Many, many thanks to all who came, volunteered and most of all opened their homes. It really felt like a celebration of individuals, families and organisations retrofitting / refurbishing homes to make them fit for the future.
Please note; Bristol Green Doors can not offer advice on retrofitting, we let the householders speak for themselves. For more information on many of the measures installed in our homes go to our Next Steps pages. For free advice on domestic energy use to householders in Bristol, Somerset and South Glos, call the CSE Home Energy Team on 0800 082 2234.
Helping set up other UK Open Home events
Since our first event in 2010 we have been sharing our experience, learning and resources to help others run open homes events like ours around the country. Now we are helping to set up a National Green Open Homes network as part of an exciting partnership with funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
A huge amount of the success of Bristol Green Doors is attributable to the commitment and enthusiasm of our team of volunteers and we are now building our team of Event Stewards for the weekend event.
This is a great role for those looking to meet the public, support what we do and learn about homes fit for the future. Come and be part of the team.
