Sign up now for the free taster session in May, and see how taking part in the Sustainable Bishopston course for residents can help you.

Free taster session 

Monday 9th May is the date for a free taster session offered by MakeyourhomeEco, a local learning initiative that's supporting Bristol residents to make their homes more energy efficient to save money and carbon. This is being held at The Presbytery, St Bonaventures, Egerton Rd, Bishopston. All are welcome and it runs from 6.30 to 9pm.

Please email to register so we can prepare for numbers coming. The session will cover:
  • how can I benefit
  •  what's involved
  •  what will I learn
  •  meet the tutors
  •  meet other interested people in the neighbourhood
  •  pick up course details and book a place
It wil be informal, interactive and a good way to find out what you want to know about the course.

The 6 week course

This will start the following week and runs from Monday 16th May to Monday 20th June. It's tailored to the local area and helps demystify information and jargon so you can learn, step by step, with others, how to take control of your energy at home.

Previous participants have saved energy, money and carbon and gained confidence talking to architects and installers to get solutions that meet their needs.
Places will be available for up to 20 people on the full course, with reduced rate of £40 for older people, thanks to the Neighbourhood Partnership, and some concessions for those on low income (usual adult education criteria) of £60, and all other places at £85. You'll learn how to apply no-cost and low cost ways to save energy and money, and plan projects that suit your budget, values and lifestyle to make your home fit for the future. 
Please contact us if you have any questions or to reserve a place

We look forward to seeing you!

MakeyourhomeEco is a new, practical, learning-based initiative designed to enable the people of Bristol to start their own home-based eco-projects, and to complement and enhance other green, community-led initiatives. For more details see
