Streetwise

Today a group of seven households started a Transition Streets journey to a lower energy lifestyle, thanks to support from SCDC Greenprint Forum, building on an earlier pilot and training course in Suffolk led by David Greenacre.

This should help us to save money, reduce our carbon emissions and minimise our reliance on fossil fuels, whilst building a stronger community.

Over the next few months we shall explore our household habits, bills and opportunities in the areas of ENERGY, WATER, WASTE, TRAVEL and FOOD. Read the rest of this entry »

Suma registration

It’s very easy! And upto 30% cheaper.

Since 2011 a food purchase scheme has been run by the BCG with Suma but many other suppliers are available depending what your group wish to purchase.

A food group can be as small as one household or as large as the number of people who want to join in.  A named person contacts Suma for a customer number and password, which then enables that person to access the prices on the website and place an order.

In Boyton (and surrounding area) we have seven households who regularly place an order, and two people who alternate placing the order. We sometimes split packs with each other so that we don’t end up with too much of any one item. We generally put in an order every other month.

It’s not only food that can be bought in bulk – you can also buy things like toilet rolls, washing powder, nappies, soap and shampoo. Read the rest of this entry »
