Retrofit Talk & Q&A with Local Architect & Panel

Join us on Tuesday 25th January 2022 for an inspirational, practical and encouraging retrofit talk and Q&A session with local architect, Sarah Kemp, as part of our postponed Eco Open Houses event.

This event held in The QEII Room, Shoreham Centre, between 6pm-8pm, will be looking at a whole-house, phased approach to reducing your home’s carbon emissions. Based in Shoreham-by-Sea, Sarah Kemp set up Eskay Architects in 2004 and works with homeowners and developers on extensions, renovations and conversions, specialising in creating comfortable and energy efficient homes (which can also save money on fuel bills).

The panel includes 3 Eco Open Houses householders (who have retrofitted their homes, one of whom is also a business owner), a local builder, an energy adviser who also has experience in draughtproofing, a solar expert and hopefully a Passivhaus architect (latter to be confirmed).

BIFFA Site Visit As Part of Eco Open Houses

We are so pleased that we have now been able to reschedule the site tour of the Mechanical Biological Treatment Plant at Warnham as part of our Eco Open Houses event.

The tour offers you the chance to learn what really happens to all that black bag rubbish! West Sussex have some of the most state-of-the-art waste & recycling plants and processes in the UK, which help to dramatically reduce the volume of waste going to landfill in our county. Some of us took this tour a few years ago and found it really interesting and informative!

The tour will take place on Monday 21st February 2022 at 10am-12pm.

Places are very limited, so if you would like to register for your FREE place, please do so asap via https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/visit-to-biffa-site-warnham-as-part-of-eco-open-houses-tickets-217701490017

Winter Solstice Celebration – 21st Dec

On Tuesday 21st December, on the beach in front of Coast Café from 5.30pm-7.30pm we will be having a Winter Solstice Celebration!

Come and join us round the fire, bring acoustic instruments, wood for the fire and celebrate the turn of the year and the returning of the light with us. Coast Café will be open for warming drinks, hot soup and bread – and cake of course!

A new Worthing Morris side, Worthing Larks** will be dancing for about 20 minutes from around 6.30pm, audience participation included too!

This event is always very weather dependent and the Morris can’t dance if it’s wet, so please bear that in mind. Coast will be open, whatever it’s like and we will be there and hopefully have a fire (we’ve done fires when it’s been raining hard in the past so that shouldn’t stop us!) but we may not do anything on the beach if it’s raining really hard. Naturally, this event is subject to current Covid guidelines (as are all our events).

**Worthing Larks – “Worthing’s very own Morris Side and one of the newest on the South coast, following our break from another local Side in 2020. A mixed morris team for members over the age of 13, enthusiastically performing a selection of Cotswold, Border and our very own Broadwater dances to traditional folk instruments.”

Plastic Free Worthing December Beach Clean

Take part in Plastic Free Worthing’s December beach clean on Sunday 12th December, 10am – 12pm at Steyne Gardens. Dress in any Christmas themed adornment please!.

Supported by our A&W Council Rangers who will sort and collect any waste we gather and our Local Geocache Group will be joining us. Thanks also to the support from Level 1 for joining us with our new logged Hi Viz jackets so you can’t miss us. See you there!
