The ‘Helping Richmondshire Heat, Eat and Meet’ Event
Organisations will be on hand to provide residents with information, advice and support to help heat their homes, eat cheap healthy food and access affordable transport solutions.
The event, hosted by Richmondshire Climate Action Partnership (RCAP), will be held 10am to 3pm, 1 July, at Tennants Auction Rooms, Leyburn.
A broad range of local authority, charitable and private sector organisations will be able to explain how to access food bank and food share schemes, and how to economise on energy costs. Alternative options for organising travel including car share, e-scooter, and public transport will also be showcased. Advice on community food schemes and community energy projects may be of interest to residents or parish councils, as will information about grants that are available for transition to renewable energy.
Organisers are still confirming a rolling programme of short presentations by participating organisations, which will be complemented by a range of stalls manned by expert advisors.
