WREN is a community based organisation. We seek to put on events for both the membership and the wider public. These range from informal social gatherings such as the WREN Christmas Party to Town Hall events which bring together experts on energy efficiency and renewable technology and also give the community a chance to share their own knowledge and expertise with each other.
One regular event we are developing is a family drop in Saturday at the shop, with varying activities. We will advertise these days on the website and in the Energy Shop window.
We also participate in a range of events put on by other organisations, such as the Low Carbon Team’s Green Tent at Royal Cornwall Show, the Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust exhibition at the Eden Centre, Wadebridge Town Council’s Jubilee Celebrations or the Cornwall Renewable Energy Show.
Vote for locally owned energy
The Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) has applied for two grants from Energyfund Cornwall to make a significant step forward for locally-owned community energy. However, to have a chance of winning them it needs to demonstrate support through on-line voting by its supporters for both projects.
The 5 Wren note made its debut at Wadebridge Museum on 30th July.
The Wren is Wadebridge’s local currency, the only one in Cornwall.Read more...
A £10,000 fund is available for community projects to benefit people living in Wadebridge, St Kew, St Mabyn and Egloshayle.
The money comes from the Middle Treworder Solar Farm under a “Section 106” agreement made when it was given permission to go ahead, and is available as grants to voluntary and not-for-profit organisations and community groups in the area around the solar farm.Read more...
