11th November: Community bids farewell to Garry and Anne Charnock: Ashton Hayes Community Energy (GCN project), AHSRA and members from the Parish Council and community shop threw a party in the Pavilion to say thanks and goodbye to Garry & Anne Charnock. Garry thought up the idea of the Carbon Neutral Project in 2005 and has worked, with Roy Alexander and many others, on reducing the village carbon fooprint for the past 12 years. The group wished them both a happy time in their new home on the Island of Bute - which is trying to be a carbon neutral and zero waste island!
