SNUG Draught-proofing Workshop

The Sidney Walter Centre was built as Sussex Road School in 1902. The school closed in 1964 and two years later was re-opened as a community centre. It is used by a wide range of clubs and organisations for events and classes, including assisted gardening in the therapeutic garden created in 2014 by Breathing Spaces, a local social enterprise.

The centre retains many original features, but does not (yet) include any energy saving features. Transition Town Worthing’s ‘Community Energy Local’ project has started an energy assessment process. This will identify the most appropriate measures to reduce energy consumption and save money, both in the main building and in the garden shed. The latter is used by Breathing Spaces’ Mind and Memory garden club for people with dementia.

The first step will be to improve the insulation. This SNUG workshop will show participants how to install draught proofing in their own home and reduce the energy lost to draughts at the centre.

SNUG workshops are fun, practical and hands-on showing you how to draught-proof timber framed windows and doors inexpensively using durable, high quality products that really work. So if you’d like to make your home warmer and cosier, and reduce your energy bills, then this workshop is for you!
