St Agnes Green DoorsNow in its fifth year, the St Agnes Green Doors Open Day is going from strength to strength. Come along and be inspired to make your home more energy efficient and find out how you can save yourself money! They guarantee an interesting weekend.

Five properties in St Agnes parish will be open to show you what and how you can make your home more environmentally friendly, particularly more energy efficient. Find out how much it will cost and what savings you can make.

You can see a building made of cob, another of rammed earth, another of traditional stone, another of timber, and some modern eco-huts, too.

It's not just about the buildings. Study the descriptions for each property - you can see a solar food drier, a home-made wind turbine, an electric car, a compost toilet, some raised beds, a rainwater storage system, some solar cookers, a battery backup system, and a tree house.

Please respect the opening times set by your hosts. Details at:

Plastic Free Penzance

Plastic Free PenzancePlastic Free Penzance is a new group set up as part of the Surfers Against Sewage 'Wasteland' campaign (see

They hope that the group becomes a platform for the community to work together and to promote positive change in order to reduce single use plastics in the town. They'll be working with a range of organisations and businesses, visiting schools and holding beach cleans and other events to raise awareness and share information. It's a really exciting project and they've got a lot of work to do. So, if you'd like to lend a hand, please get in touch with them!

They've had lots of questions on what individual action people can take on single use plastics. So, think what things you're finding it hard to replace? They'll look into the alternatives and share ideas.
