We are starting to plan the next HGN members meeting – and intend to get everyone together in early September.. at which point we can reflect on the summer we’ve had and look forward together to the work of the Autumn & Winter.

If anyone would like us to try to meet sooner, or like to be added to the mailing list for this meeting, please contact Kate: contact@hgnetwork.org

 

And some good news for this weekend in case all else is feeling bleak… on Wednesday this week renewable sources of energy generated more than half of the UK’s electricity for the first time. You probably already knew – but good things are worth repeating…

Charging Electric Vehicles

Do you worry about where you are going to charge your electric vehicle? Are you put off buying an electric vehicle because of the lack of charging points? Do you have a charging point that you could let others use?

chargie.net is a new idea to allow peer to peer sharing of charging points. It’s like Airbnb for EVs!

It would be good to see some more charging points across the Marches showing on this map so please share this link widely!
