Transition Town Worthing is delighted to be continuing our exciting collaboration with Low Carbon Trust, Henry House Therapy Centre and Worthing Homes, to bring you fifteen varied and inspiring Eco Open Houses, workshops, tours and talks in Worthing, Lancing and Ferring.
Some of the houses are old, some are new, and many may seem quite ordinary. But what they all have in common is that the people living in them have low energy and water bills, and enjoy warm happy homes in winter. And it doesn’t necessarily take expensive renovation to cut bills: behaviour changes and small alterations can make a big difference. In visiting an eco open home you can meet householders who will share their experiences and advise on practical steps you can take to improve your own home.
It is free to visit any of the houses and all are welcome. Please note that booking is essential for the SNUG Draught Proofing workshop, the solar PV workshop and tours of Splashpoint Leisure Centre.
So whether you are a home owner or tenant wanting to find out what you can do in your home to save money and feel healthier and warmer; a builder looking for better ways to build for your clients; or just simply curious; come and be inspired by visiting an Eco Open House near you!
For the first time, there are also workshops on draught-proofing, solar photovoltaics (PV) and energy switching, tours of Splashpoint Leisure Centre and Downsbrook School that highlight their energy and water saving features and behaviour change tips from children at Community House. Something for everyone – so why not make a day of it.
