Drafty House 02

Bucks County Council has just given a grant of £3,000 to Haddenham in Transition to buy equipment for testing air tightness to improve insulation in local homes.

Essentially this is a high tech way of identifying areas in rooms where improved draught proofing would reduce energy bills.

The HiT group is proposing to offer this as a service to local householders with a particular emphasis on households on low incomes and the elderly.

We need volunteers to help with this project — any help gratefully received even just a few hours at some time in the next few months.

Could any one able to help with this please let us know by emailing Robin Aitchison at: robin@aitchisons.org

It would be wonderful to re-use them on an annual basis.One suggestion is that we create a 'pop-up' display, which can be used each November.If you would like to be involved or if you have any ideas...
