1200 Lewes Eco Open House visits


The Eco Open house event finished on Sunday 23rd and most of the householders and volunteers gathered for a celebration at the Lewes arms that evening. Final attendance figures were gathered together and we were able to announce a record breaking attendance of over 1200 house visits! More than 50% up on the last event in 2014.

We all shared our experiences and it was great to hear that the majority of visitors came seeking information and shared expertise, to get their own eco house projects under way. Giving inspiration and confidence to others is definitely the way forward.

The new booking system also seemed to work well and helped regulate numbers and make householder presentations more manageable. Lots of ideas were shared to make the next event even better.

We would like to thank all the householders who took part for generously opening their homes and giving up so much free time to help others. Similarly we couldn’t have done it without the army of volunteers working at the houses and the team behind the event. Finally, we should acknowledge the very generous backing from the Big Lottery and the very useful grants from  Lewes Pound and Lewes Town Council. Neil Williams

For future reference, and for those who couldn’t make it, Neil has produced a leaflet going ideas on how to make your own home more energy efficient, with particular focus on high impact/low cost measures.


What is Transition?

  When with TTL, Rob Hopkins asked people "What is Transition?". Here's what they told him...

Transition Town Lewes (TTL)  is a network of Lewes people. We’re working on local solutions in response to the global problems of climate change, economic change and the end of cheap energy and other resources.

Please get in touch if you would like to meet some of the people involved in project work for TTL.

And don't forget to subscribe to the TTL monthly newsletter to keep up to date with our news and events.

Transition is about the creation of resilient communities. It's not about campaigning but designing. It's about putting in place systems that will help us to deal with the big changes that are on the way. Those changes will be in three main areas: energy, the economy and the environment. Read more and get linked in to the bigger picture!
