Now, more and more people, in town as well as countryside, are enjoying the pleasure of keeping hens in the garden and reaping the reward of those freshly-laid eggs every day. Virginia Shirt has lived with chickens for over 15 years so her knowledge of these fascinating birds is conditioned by practical experience.

The next Community Energy Group Network event will take place in Exeter, 11-3pm on Tuesday 27 August 2013. This event will be all about finance and there will be a presentation from WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) about the Rural Community Energy Fund. This is another great opportunity for communities in the south west to get together and share learning as well as find ways to finance projects.
The Community Energy Group Network is an important element of the Regen SW Community Support Programme, part funded by our European project ACE. This is the third meeting of the network and is open to any communities interested in climate change and community energy solutions. Places are limited, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. To book your place please reply to this email with CEGN in the subject header.
