We are sadly having to part company with our Nissan Leaf as we have not achieved the level of membership to enable us to run the car effectively in 2012. We are keen to sell it to another community or Local resident. The proceeds will be invested in projects that make our village more sustainable and reduce carbon. The key problem seems to be that, in a village with no public transport, most people are geared up with independent transport and hiring the car is not proving an attractive proposition. We tried! Email one of our team if you are interested. (see contacts)
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).
