Winter 23 Newsletter

Welcome to your winter 2023 Sustainable Hayfield newsletter, packed full of material, and with a focus on positive experiences and actions. Click here to see it. 

As you read, we'd ask you to do three things, if you'll be so kind:
1. look out for the events/discussions signalled on pages 2 and 3 and consider joining in (January 5th, 12th and 20th);
2. consider signing up for our very successful Home Energy MOT scheme, as over 90 of your neighbours have. Cut your energy use, bills and emissions, all for free!. It makes so much practical sense (contact details are on page 4)
 3. consider, if you have not done so already, becoming a member of Sustainable Hayfield. It gives you some rights supporters do not have, and absolutely no obligations. And it's free! Contact Pennie Roberts at and she'll confirm your membership - simple!.  

We hope you enjoy this issue of the newsletter. As ever, we're happy to receive any ideas or suggestions for future content. Let us know at Thanks!.  .

Show the Love this February!

Why not  #ShowTheLove for our planet this February / Valentines Day? People across the UK will be painting, drawing, stitching, printing or otherwise designing green hearts for window displays to demonstrate their public commitment to work for a greener, cleaner, safer world, which values biodiversity, fairness and sustainability. Might you join them? And, if you wish, why not write a letter to our MP, enclosing a grreen heart and ask him to do what he can to promote government actions which help secure that reality and make more progress on the huge tasks facing us to achieve net zero within a decent period. He couln't help but notice a cluster of green hearts arriving in his mailbox/bag.! Details of the wider campaign are at

Thank you!
