Friends Meeting House
12 Jesus Lane, CB5 8BA
18 of us heard homeowners’ varied stories: choosing, installing and living with a variety of energy-saving measures. We learnt how and why they now live in beautiful, energy-efficient homes, what’s it been like? What are the benefits — and the problems? Lively discussion continued and people found it hard to leave!
- Lorna Rayner and her family won a year rent-free in a ZeroCarbon home in Lingrey Court. Moving from a draughty older home could have been daunting, but through good design it’s comfortable and family-friendly, but with some teething problems! See Lorna’s presentation with links
- Antony at Sherlock Road is an engineer and DIY enthusiast. He and Kathryn wanted “to reduce our carbon footprint and lower our bills” which they’re achieving with an ambitious eco-renovation and extension of their home.

- Colin has built 2 semi-detached timber-frame houses in Silverdale Avenue for his business and home, aiming for “a practical, low-maintenance, comfortable home that was as sustainable as possible at an affordable cost” We heard how he got on! See Colins’ Presentation
