Green Open Homes 17/18 May, Big Eco Refurb Share 20 May

Green Open Homes Weekend : Sat 17 & Sun 18 May

The Hornb

eam Centre presents the first ever Waltham Forest Green Open Homes Weekend – an opportunity to visit homes around the borough and find inspiration to make your home more energy efficient, warmer and cheaper to run.  All of the householders have great stories to tell about why they decided to make their homes more energy efficient and how much warmer, more comfortable and usually richer (!) they are as a result. So if you want to find out about energy and water efficiency, solar panels, building with reclaimed materials, insulation, draught proofing and more, do come along.

There are a wide variety of homes to visit, some are drop-ins but most require bookings via http://walthamforest.greenopenhomes.net
