Garry Charnock (left) was delighted to host a very quick visit by Charles Simon (right) of Eden Mills in Ontario, Canada - our twin town in North Ameria. Charles visited back in 2007 to discuss the GCN project and then went back to Eden Mills and started a village project there. They had achieved great things and are now hoping to be the first carbon neutral community in North America as this document explains. Well done Eden Mills.
Now in Association with
Ashton Hayes Community Energy CIC
Located in rural Cheshire, Ashton Hayes is a well knit community of about 1000 people that is aiming to become England's first carbon neutral community. We started our journey in January 2006 and since then we have already cut our carbon dioxide emissions by 40% - by working together, sharing ideas and through behavioural change. We now have our community owned renewable energy company.
This website encapsulates our journey towards carbon neutrality and offers free advice and guidance. Please feel free to use anything from our website (we'd like a credit if you can).
