THE THIRD THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH
Our second event is taking place in the upstairs space at The Old Monkey (Portland Street), and we hope to see you there between 6.15 pm – 8 pm. Our speaker Rev. John Huges will be talking about what was the inspiration for starting a community energy project, how it has had a positive effect on the community, what the challenges of the project are and what St John’s Sunshine have in store for the future.
"Take one community asset – a south facing church roof, for instance, add a solar panel or two and before you know it you are helping to power a community. But what about the other energy that powers society – the creative energy of the people who live there? That energy, like sunshine or wind energy, is in every neighbourhood, but harnessing it and making it work for the benefit of all is a much greater challenge. In Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, St John’s Sunshine set out to do exactly that". Find out more at www.stjohnssunshine.org.uk
