This CAP project which has been meeting for the last two years has received ‘Advancing a Shared Economy in Preston’ funding. It will be used to employ someone part time to progress solar installations.
Have your say on the future of this project to develop everyday cycling at The Larder July 16th 2.30-5.00pm.
See lots of updates on the Projects page.
There was a good turnout on 17th June for Robin Jones’ presentation on the progress of Community Energy Preston. Clear explanations of what CEP’s solar offer is, showed the audience that the project is well on its way to viability. An expected grant will enable the part-time appointment of someone to work with the volunteers and coordinate the next steps. Julie Ridley also had exciting news of the success of an application to LCC’s Access Fund for ‘Preston Pedals’ to move into the future.
Members of the public were invited to write ‘Letters to tomorrow’ recording fears of increasing threats to the natural world and demands for political leaders to act. These were published on the Great Big Green week site.
May 13th 10-3 at CEC 32 Flag Market, Preston
