Power the Night with Sunlight in Golberdon

Vote here now to help make it happen.

South Hill parish is just 17 minutes from Tavistock.

The Parish Hall in Golberdon village is the heart of all activities and needs money spent on it to keep it going. We aim to “Power the Night with Sunlight” … store the energy generated from the solar panels installed on the hall roof 2 years ago so it can be used when the sun isn’t shining. This will help with running costs and ensure the hall is sustainable for the future.

We have successfully been shortlisted for a M&S Energy grant and now need VOTES, LOTS of VOTES to win the funding. We’re asking all our neighbours and friends and their friends to vote starting on  Sept 4th through to Oct 20th 2017.

We hope with all our efforts and your votes we can make a real difference in our community.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR VOTING. We Need Friends.

Recycle Devon is putting on a series of REPAIR IT events across the county for householders to bring along their broken electrical appliances, including computers, to be fixed by local menders at no cost and the West Devon event takes place in Tavistock.

Organised in conjunction with Transition Tavistock and Tamar Community Energy, the event will run from 10:00 to 12:30 and repairs will be carried out on a first come, first served basis so please be prepared to wait.  Please note that they won’t be able to fix CRT TVs or monitors, electric blankets or microwaves, for safety reasons.

Kate Royston, from Transition Tavistock, says ‘Local businesses and community members with the right technical knowledge are amazingly supportive of these events and contribute their time voluntarily.  We’re delighted to have IT repair business; Western Web Computer Services and electrical repair whizz Myles from Yeltv on board alongside a number of skilled local people, for the Tavistock REPAIR IT.

Emma Croft, Re-use Project Co-ordinator added, ’Research shows that more than 75% of the small electrical items that come into recycling centres could be back up and running if they were repaired.  These events are designed to help householders waste less and enable them to save money and resources by not having to replace something broken.’

Get in touch with Emma on 07966 566435 or via emma.croft@devon.gov.uk; or Kate on 07969 569 444 to find out more.

Devon County Council’s Re-use Project promotes re-use of durable household items – specifically clothes, electrical goods, furniture and bicycles through a programme of community and third sector engagement.

The REPAIR IT events have been funded by the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Distributor Take Back Scheme.
