Is Winter Getting To You - Ideas To Make Your House Warmer And Cheaper To Heat 
Q&A session

13 January at 8pm using zoom.

As a follow-up  to our sessions on property and energy efficiency at the Heatons Climate Action Festival, there will be lots of time to quiz our panellists:  Sara Darwin of  phi architects, Mel Godfrey of Warm in Winter, and Steve Howarth, local eco-home owner, about how to improve the temperature in your house and save money too. There will also be time to find more about new government initiatives, like the Green Homes Grant, to help us to fund changes in our homes to improve energy efficiency.

Everyone is welcome. Please tell anyone you know who is planning house improvements – joining in this session will be time well spent!

Contact greenhomes@slheatons.org to book a place and we’ll send a link.
RECYCLING OLD SMARTPHONES

In SLH we never want to miss a good tip to reduce waste and stop things going to landfill! We just heard about a great initiative.   

Your old phone could be a lifeline to someone. Stockport Council is distributing recycled smartphones to the vulnerable and to households that don't have access to the internet. The phone needs to have an intact screen, to charge properly, and if possible the charger that goes with it. The smartphone can be dropped off at any of the open Stockport libraries (that includes Heatons Library). The phone will be refurbished and people getting the phone will get 12 months free credit provided by O2. Find out more here:  https://www.hubbub.org.uk/communitycalling

LOOKING AHEAD

Coronavirus restrictions unfortunately mean that usual SLH activities cannot happen at the moment.  These are tough times but like everyone we hope that the vaccine means that there will be brighter times ahead and that later this year we can safely plan to meet and have some of our regular events, as well as new ones. We are tentatively beginning to think about the SLH-led local bike rides, what we can plant and grow in the SLH raised beds, when we can start maintaining our ancient hedge together, and even about some new projects! 

This newsletter is one of the many ways you can find out about SLH events.  SLH are proud to have a mailing list of nearly 700 people! If you know someone who would enjoy finding out more about SLH activities get them to contact info@slheatons.org  so we can add them. 

Everyone can also find out about our activities and events through Heatons Post, which comes out monthly, and through our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds.

MONTHLY MEETINGS

The SLH monthly meetings continue to be via ZOOM, on the first Saturday of the month 10.30-12.00. The next one will be Saturday 6th February 2021.  Please contact us beforehand at info@slheatons.org if you would like to join in, and we will send you the link. Everyone is welcome-do come and meet us!
