Free energy and money saving advice day

A special event is being held in Witney’s Market Square to give people free advice on how to save energy, help the environment and reduce their costs.

The Environment Day will run from 11am to 3pm on Friday 22 July and has been organised by West Oxfordshire District Council in conjunction with Oxfordshire Waste Partnership.

Among the activities will be a ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ demonstration by a chef cooking up culinary treats using leftovers and giving tips on how to make the most of foods to cut waste and costs at home.

There will also be energy-saving and green travel advice, composting tips from West Oxfordshire’s own local resident ‘Master Composter’ and the ‘Wild Waste’ education bus.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “The Council is committed to reducing its own impact on the environment and encourages all of our residents to do the same. This day is about raising awareness of some of the simple steps that people can take to do this.

“There are savings to be had by reducing energy consumption and cutting down on waste, and we hope people will take this opportunity to find out more.”

For further information about the Environment Day, call 01993 861349. You can also visit www.westoxon.gov.uk/environment to find out about some of the Council’s work on environmental and climate change issues.
