THE group met on Saturday, November 4 when several topics were discussed with further actions decided.

These included:

Switch Off Your Engine campaign. It had been decided that the town clerk and the Mayor would be approached to further consider what can be done.

Code for Sustainable Homes. This was introduced in 2006 to encourage continuous improvement in sustainable home building but withdrawn by the Government in 2015.

This was discussed but. as far as we were aware, there are no solar panels on new build houses in this area.

Henley Community Energy Project. It would be fantastic to put solar panels on the roofs of schools, churches and businesses. People have been emailed with a view to starting a group to work on this idea.

Retrofitting Insulation. Sue Roberts, of Sustainable Wallingford, gives advice on insulation.
