This FREE energy training workshop is for you.

The Environmental Information Exchange (EiE), funded by the Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment (TOE2), is running 4 half-day workshops on energy efficiency in village and community halls in Oxfordshire. The first workshop will be held in South Oxfordshire on 12th July from 9.30am and the second will be held in the Vale on 10th October.  There will be subsequent workshops in Cherwell and West Oxfordshire.

Workshop on 12th July
All Saints’ Youth and Community Hall in Didcot hall is a newly built hall and incorporates a ground-source heat pump to feed low energy/cost under floor heating and rain-water harvesting to reduce water usage.  There will be a chance to see the energy efficient features of the hall.

Workshop on 10th October
Wootton and Dry Sandford Community centre was refurbished and extended in 2010. It incorporated under-floor heating, sensors and timers and has introduced tight management practices to control energy costs.  There will be an opportunity to tour the hall and talk to a member of the hall committee.

These two energy training workshops will be morning sessions finishing with a locally sourced light lunch, and they are FREE for the first 2 delegates per community building.  Each workshop will include information and advice on reviewing energy use, identifying problems and finding solutions.
