As a director of Transition Town Worthing, Pauline spends a lot of her time at home organising projects and events (like this one) all aimed at reducing impact on the environment.  Pauline and Alan's home is a living example of small achievable steps.

Their approach to water and energy conservation is impressive. It is a 2-bedroom bungalow with both Pauline & Alan at home most days, but their water consumption is equivalent to less than one person in a one-bedroom property, so how do they do it?

Go along and see just how simple it is to achieve, through eco appliances and settings, water butts and a conscious choice to use mains water at a minimum. And let’s not forget their zero-cost built shed, and their home-made pond, created from recycled materials.

Their solar PV panels will be paid back after 7 years, allowing them the luxury of being guilt and carbon free as they enjoy a cosy, comfortable and environmentally positive home, exuding efficiency, yet has come together from a make do and mend philosophy using and reusing everything.

Come and talk to Pauline and Alan… Be wowed by simplistic efficiency that's actually very easy to achieve.
