“One small step for Widcombe, One giant leap for the World!”
Our vision is to assist as many Widcombe residents as possible to:
- stop burning fossil fuels and reduce carbon emissions,
- increase the use of renewable energy
Go Green Widcombe is a volunteer group.
- BANES has declared a climate emergency, aiming to be carbon neutral by 2030
- For residents, the biggest cause of CO2 emissions is household fuels (gas, coal and oil).

- Widcombe mainly has older homes that are hard to make energy efficient.
