Grants for a green home

RESIDENTS in West Suffolk could be in line for grants of £350 to pay for energy saving products for their homes.

People living in the area can find out more about the greener homes DIY scheme at an event at Whelnetham Community Centre next Sunday, September 11.

The initiative, funded by the West Suffolk Local Strategic Partnership, means people can apply for grants of up to £350 to pay for radiator panels, water butts, draft proofing and insulation.

People living in the St Edmundsbury Borough Council area can also apply for a £500 grant towards the cost of installing a renewable energy system.

Find out more at the event, which runs from 11am-3pm, or contact Andrew Oswald on 01284 757622.
