OUR ENVIRONMENT – OUR COMMUNITY – OUR FUTURE TOGETHER:  SUSTAINABLE BLEWBURY TALKS

Marianne Suhr, local resident and co-author of Old House Handbook and Old House Eco Handbook, kicks off our new series of talks with Old House to Eco House: making your historic home more energy efficient. Marianne will be talking about houses built before 1900, and the challenges homeowners face when trying to retrofit them to reduce heating bills. As well as ‘quick wins’, she will show case studies of more complex interventions, and discuss the issues regarding moisture movement and condensation.

This talk will take place on Monday 18 October at 20.00, Melland Room in Blewbury Clubhouse (doors open 19.45).  Tickets £6 including a drink of your choice.

Dr Brenda Boardman, Emeritus Fellow at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford, will lead our November talk and discussion on one of today’s most urgent topics:  15-Minute Neighbourhoods and other local issues:   what do we need within a short walk from home?  For an introduction to Brenda and her work, just listen to her on BBC Radio 4’s Life Scientific on 21st September 0900, also available on BBC Sounds.

This talk will take place on Monday 22 November at 20.00, Melland Room in Blewbury Clubhouse (doors open 19.45). Tickets £6 including a drink of your choice.
