At the heart of WREN is the Community Fund which exists to benefit the whole community (you can find out more about the Community Fund by clicking here). For this to work properly, we need everyone to take an interest or even better still, get involved with WREN.
It is WREN's members who decide how the Community Fund will be spent, which local projects will benefit from it and fundamentally help to shape our future community and the town in which we live.
The team (of mostly volunteers) at WREN are constantly working to bring new initiatives and incredible offers to the area, all designed to help reduce fuel bills and save you money. As a not for profit organisation, we don’t have the funding to spend out on constant advertising, so our membership database is vital when it comes to communicating this information. If nothing else, just by being a member, receiving the information we send out (and maybe passing it on to a few friends and family along the way) really helps us to achieve our goal to put more money into the Community Fund.
Membership costs just £1 and you can join WREN by calling into the Energy Shop on the Platt, or you can download this form and send it, along with UK stamps to the value of £1 to:MembershipThe Energy ShopHamilton HouseThe PlattWadebridgePL27 7AA
We are run by people power! The more you get involved the more we can make happen.
Volunteering at WREN is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, get involved with the local community and add to your CV. WREN would not exist without the amazing team of volunteers that run the energy shop, offer advice to visitors and help out at events.
