The Greening Wingrove Project

The project focuses on saving energy, recycling, keeping the area looking tidy, holding sessions to show how to grow vegetables in the back yard or on the balcony. It has become a community focus and holds regular events which are well attended. The church has also benefitted – its members have saved money on their electricity through community switch and the hall at the church has been insulated by Greening Wingrove to show the difference insulation can make to energy bills.
