'Working together for our community - some of the projects so far'
We Love Littleworth is part of the Council’s work to ‘Promote environmental quality’ and to ‘Reduce our carbon footprint and encourage our residents to be more environmentally aware’. Working with a range of partners the aim is to improve environmental quality and promote more sustainable lifestyles in the area.
Over the last couple of years, lots of activity has been quietly taking place.
Energy audits have been carried out to help cut energy bills and save money at St John’s Church, Littleworth Community Centre, Littleworth Guide Hut, Perkins Sports and Social Club, the Sea Cadets HQ on Riverway, plus NVS hair studios. These have led to practical action such as installing a new boiler, fitting wall-heaters, upgrading radiators and lighting systems, fitting security lights and replacing draughty doors - as well as installing a new notice board at the church.
Other work has promoted cycling, tackled litter, helped to conserve wildlife and encouraged vegetable growing.
‘We Love Littleworth’ has also secured a good chunk of external grant funding too, bringing in almost £30,000 towards local projects in 2016 alone.
The ‘Festival of Refashioning and Repair’, held in July, showcased how easy it is to repair, upcycle and restore things - rather than throw them away. The event really inspired people!
Working with local organisations, including schools, businesses and the hospital, there’s much more in the pipeline! We’d love you to get involved!
