Energy switching: advice and practical help – bring a copy of your most recent energy bill!

The Maybridge Keystone Centre is the home of Maybridge Keystone Club, a youth club for 8-19 year olds, as well as offering fitness, sport and learning experiences for all age groups. For example, there is a weekly IT hub to help older people learn how to use a computer and get online. Breathing Spaces, a local social enterprise run assisted gardening for people with dementia.

In 2010, funded by Worthing Borough Council and the Government’s Community Assets Fund, the original building was given a much-needed renovation and a new sports hall added. The Centre has automatic sensory lighting in the toilets and outside, taps that turn off automatically and natural light flumes in the foyer, which is insulated by a sedum roof. Installing solar panels is being considered for the future.

Outside, Breathing Spaces, Oak Grove College and many groups and volunteers have planted native trees and built a therapeutic woodland garden. The next phase is to create vegetable growing areas and have cookery sessions using fresh ingredients, with the youth club and other groups like Maybridge Children and Family Centre.

There will be a brief presentation about this work as well as the workshop on energy switching. Hazel Thorpe will explain how Adur and Worthing Council’s ‘Energy Switch’ helps householders make energy price comparisons.

Community Energy Local, a community run energy advice service, will offer free, impartial, on-the-spot help with switching energy supplier or tariff.
