Randwick Village Hall shortlisted for award
This year’s South West Green Energy Awards has apparently attracted a record number of entries, with 46 different nominees for the various awards. I submitted one for the Open Homes event with the exhibition at Randwick Village Hall - it didn't quite fit the category but we were invited to submit and my hope was to encourage others to take up the idea across the SW - at the moment Stroud is really one of only a handful of towns in this country doing an Open Homes event - infact I've been writing up the report last weekend of the event to look at how best to proceed next year - sadly I just don't have that many days to give as a volunteer again - but already ideas are taking shape....but more of that in another post I am getting sidetracked.....
The Village Hall also put an application in and I heard yesterday evening that Randwick has been shortlisted with Bovey Action Group - see shortlist below...very well deserved indeed for the Village Hall Committee and indeed all those who helped get the project off the ground. The awards ceremony is on 25th November so keep your fingers crossed for Randwick!
The shortlisted entries are:
· Best business innovation:Zenex energy-saving boilers, Nu-Heat training facility, Forest Fuels, and Alvesta Anaerobic digestion unit
· Most Proactive Local Authority: Bristol City, Torridge, Swindon
· Best Sustainable Energy Community:Bovey Climate Action, and Randwick Village Hall
