Climate & Environment Strategy
Have your say and tell us what climate and environment issues matter to you so that we can shape the plan for Warboys
Warboys Climate & Environment Group is led by the Parish Council and works on projects to encourage positive change within our village. The group will meet bi-monthly on the following dates throughout 2024:
- 15th January
- 4th March
- July tbc
- September tbc
- November tbc
If you are passionate about climate change and our local environment, have relevant skills or experience to share, or simply want to contribute toward making positive changes within our village, we’d love to hear from you so please get in touch:
Contact the Clerks at email@example.com
One positive change you can make for the environment is to reduce your waste, re-use where possible and recycle the remainder.
Confused about what goes in your blue, green or grey bin? Take a look at Huntingdonshire District Council’s What Goes in Which Bin? webpage or the following documents:
The Parish Council have also collated a list of additional recycling sites that are available locally for items such as batteries, baby wipe pack, pens, soft plastics and small electricals, details can be found in the Local recycling poster (PDF)
Thermal Imaging Project
Volunteers from the Warboys Climate & Environment Group are carrying out thermal imaging surveys in December and January to assess how much heat some village households are losing from their homes. Using a state of the art thermal imaging camera, householders can visibly see areas of heat loss and are then able to focus on the places where more insulation could make a big difference in reducing energy consumption and costs.
Why do we need energy efficient homes? Aside from the obvious cost saving of reducing heat loss, an energy efficient home reduces our dependence on non-renewable energy sources, burning less fossil fuels and putting less carbon into the atmosphere.
