The next regular monthly meeting of the Giles Group will be on Monday September 13th, at 2pm in the Alresford Community Centre.
There will be a speaker, probably a young lady called Ellie, from The Environment Centre in Southampton (www.environmentcentre.com). They are an independent charity that aims to reduce carbon emissions, encourage sustainability, improve air quality and provide affordable warmth. They are financed by Hampshire County Council, and help local residents in Southampton, Portsmouth and rural Hampshire by providing tailored advice on energy use, heating, and insulation: they also advise on support such as the priority services register, and switching energy tariffs.
Ellie and a colleague will give a brief talk about these topics, and their “Hitting the Cold Spot” Service…. and then answer any specific questions you may have about home heating in general. They are also available on 02380 336172.
Afterwards we will have the normal teas and cakes, plus the raffle.
For our October meeting, on Monday October 11th, Mark Turner, the Chef and Restaurant Manager at Wayfarer Place will give a slide show covering his visit to Machu Picchu, the 15th-century Inca citadel in Peru.
