This is our Community Year of Green Action, working with other Horsham based community and faith groups we are really excited to announce the launch of the Sussex Green Hub, opening Saturday 31st July.

When: Last Saturday every month

Where: United Reformed Church, 45 Springfield Rd, Horsham RH12 1PT (behind Wilko just off of West Street).

At Sussex Green Hub on the last Saturday of every month there will be a range of environmental services, solutions and advice, along with lots of friendly and welcoming volunteers who want to help you take small green steps to save money and the planet. Plus a community café where you can enjoy a drink and light refreshments.

Refreshments

The United Reformed Church, hosts of this monthly event will be offering drinks and light refreshments, supported by the Horsham Community Fridge.

Repair service

The Horsham Repair Café volunteers will be on hand to help people learn how to repair household electrical and mechanical devices, computers, clothing, and other items.

Renewable energy service

Sussex Green Living are able to offer advice on reducing energy use in the home, a cost comparison and switching to clean renewable energy. It takes less than 5 minutes to look at your current electricity and gas (if you use it) supplier(s) to eight clean 100% renewable energy suppliers. Let us help you purchase clean energy which is power generated from renewable sources – sun, wind, water (rivers, tides or wave power) and biofuels (usually gas released by rotting food and agricultural waste). Unlike electricity generated by burning dirty fossil fuels like oil, coal and gas, clean energy has very little impact in terms of climate change and air pollution.

Recycling advice

Our Sussex Green Living volunteers will be available to talk about household recycling, what you can and can’t put in your council kerbside bins and lots of ideas as to how you can recycle more single use plastics through our TerraCycle recycling scheme and through the supermarkets who generate so much of the waste.

Regrow

Transition Horsham will be present to talk about sustainable live with a particular focus on growing food and making our gardens more wildlife friendly. They have a community allotment and are always looking for more members of the public to join them. Learn about their Horsham District Council Community Climate grant funded SEED CIRCLE and much more.

Reading

We will be offering a book exchange, bring along any read books and exchange for another, or donate your book for someone else to enjoy.

Respond

Horsham Eco Churches help churches and individuals respond as they care for God’s wonderful world.

Refill service

We will be offering a cleaning product bottle refill service. Whatever you are looking to clean in your home (household or personal hygiene), we have a great eco range to choose from, and three main suppliers mean that we cover virtually all your household requirements in an eco friendly product! Bio D, Ecoleaf and Faith in Nature are all great environmentally sound products with the added benefit that they work brilliantly too.

This service was founded by the Horsham Quakers in 2013 with the aim of providing environmentally friendly products at affordable prices and reducing plastic bottle recycling in Horsham District. It became an integral part of the Horsham Repair Café and is now managed by Sussex Green Living and a team of wonderful volunteers.
