Do you need support energy-proofing your home? Join our monthly Housewarming meetings

Following the launch of our Housewarming Guides, we will be running a series of monthly ‘Housewarmings’ – structured meetings with local residents. Everyone who lives in North Oxford is warmly invited – if you have not yet joined the existing networking group, you are welcome to do so now. The monthly meetings will start on Tuesday 11 October and continue until July 2023 and will be held at the Woodstock Road Baptist Church, 198 Woodstock Road, OX2 7NQ (corner of Beech Croft Road). All the meetings are on the second Tuesday of the month, every month except for December and April. They start at 7.30 pm and finish at 9.00 pm. 

The Housewarmings are friendly, informative meetings designed to help you through the decision-making involved in making your home warmer in winter, cooler in summer, and in saving energy. You don’t need to sign up to all of them – come to one, several or all.

In each meeting we’ll explore an aspect of one of the six Housewarming Guides, and allow plenty of time for peer support and sharing experiences. We ask you to do a little bit of preparation for each meeting, usually in the form of a short questionnaire. Please save the dates, and please tell friends and neighbours.
