- A number of low energy bulbs have been fitted. Others have been identified with a short-term programme to replace.
- All accessible hot water and heating pipes insulated.
- Locally sourced supply of sustainable wood used on log fires.
- Water from the stream in the garden is used to water plants.
- Programme to use 'A' rated electrical appliances for replacements.
- Toilet 'Hippos' fitted to reduce water consumption.
- Free range eggs collected from our own hens so no packaging.
- Please use refillable toiletries etc.
- Use of recycled paper products for toilet paper/tissues etc.
- Council doorstep recycling of bottles, cans and paper.
- Garden and kitchen waste is composted.
- Shoes go to a local collection site.

- You may like to help in the following ways.
- Please do not leave any unnecessary lights on when you go out.
- At night please close the curtains before you go out.
Please do not leave the TV in stand-by mode.
- You can adjust the radiator valves in the bedroom and bathroom to suit your own comfort. (Too high a setting and having the windows open at the same time will only contribute to wasting energy.)
- Ensuring that in winter months the front door is kept closed to retain heat.
- Support local businesses...it helps to keep them viable for all of us.
- Please place papers and bottles at the side of your room's waste bin as it helps with our recycling efforts.
