Eco Open Houses Day

Eco Open Houses Day

Green inspiration with a cup of tea!

Six houses in Steyning, plus the FIre Station will be opening their doors to show off the steps they’ve taken to make their homes cosier, cut their energy bills, and trim their carbon footprint.

A wide range of properties will be on display, from this old Victorian pub to a former council house and a brand new home.  You’ll be able to see a range of eco-measures up close, including:

  • Solar PV
  • Battery storage
  • Heat pumps 
  • Insulation improvements of all kinds
  • Draught proofing
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Wildlife-friendly gardens
  • Electric vehicles

You’ll be able to speak to the homeowners and find out what prompted them to make these changes, what challenges they faced, and how it’s worked out.  With a bit of luck you’ll be inspired to take similar steps yourself!

Pick up a Green Card and get a free drink

As an added incentive, several High Street cafés are offering a free drink to visitors who are taking part in the Eco Open House event.  Just pick up a ‘Green Card’ from one of the open houses and you can trade it in for a free tea or coffee at participating cafés, provided you buy a snack or pastry at the same time.  

The Eco Open Houses Day is on Saturday 31st August.

Entrance is entirely free an homes are open from 11am to 5pm.

You can pick up a brochure with a map and details of all of the properties from the Library, Steyning Book Shop, and most of the estate agents and coffee shops in town – just look for an Eco Open Houses poster in the window.  Or you can download one from the Greening Steyning website:  www.greeningsteyning.org/EOH
