* Tuesday 23rd March at 7:30pm: How to Super-Insulate Your House to make it Warm and Comfortable - and Reduce Your Fuel Bills! By Andy Walker
This inspiring and at times humorous talk will present a host of straightforward ways to significantly improve the warmth in your home – without it costing the earth. Andy Walker is the Technical Editor and Co-Author of the best-selling Haynes Manual on Home Insulation. Andy also ran the SURE Insulation Community Interest Company in West Yorkshire for four years which successfully installed Super-Insulation in many local homes (including at least one member of CAM!)Encouragement will be provided to ‘Do It Yourself’ – with guidance from a free downloadable booklet. This booklet was produced for a Housing Association and covers a wide range of techniques for improving insulation and airtightness. Also described will be the idea of ‘House Warming Parties’ where groups of friends have a tailored workshop to start the project to insulate one of their homes. After the workshop the group of friends will have the skills, knowledge and confidence to work on each other’s homes. This session will be conducted on Zoom.
