'The UK’s active current support of new exploitation of fossil fuels – the UK shale gas fracking industry, the expansion of its North Sea oil and gas fields, the expansion of airports as well as the planning permission for a brand new coal mine – is beyond absurd...Did you hear what I just said? Is my English OK? Is the microphone on? Because I’m beginning to wonder.'

We'll be joining Devon Carers at their Kingsbridge Advice Fair on 13th June from 10am - 1pm at Kingsbridge Library. If you are a carer, why not pop along and see what support is available to you.
We'll be there to help with any home energy queries, if you bring a recent bill we can check if you can save money by switching to a cheaper and better supplier. We can also advise on grants for heating and insulation.
We are delighted to be part of the Ocean Discovery Zone at Devon County Show this year.

We'll be at the stand on Thursday, not on Friday, and again for a little bit of Saturday when children are free to enter the show.

We'll be on hand with free and impartial energy advice and would love to be able to help you reduce your energy bills, switch supplier and make your home more energy efficient.
