Save energy and money

To ring in Climate Action Week, dozens of residents joined us at our energy event at Our Lady of Fatima church in White City.

Local charity Green Doctors shared tips and practical tricks on how to save on energy bills while keeping our homes warm and healthy.


  • tested their knowledge on which appliances at home consume the most energy
  • benefitted from 1-to-1 consultations with Green Doctors’ energy experts
  • and enjoyed a free lunch and complementary energy efficiency goodies, including LED bulbs and draught proofing.

Reduce food waste

Lots of laughs and fantastic foods were had at Tuesday’s surplus supper at the Nourish Hub.

H&F’s popular community kitchen invited residents to connect with their local community over a wholesome and delicious two-course meal made from rescued ingredients.

Around 40 diners came to join the food waste fight, and stayed for a delicious Indian medley of onion bhaji, dal and raita, topped off by some apple pie and toffee sauce.

Guest speakers from the Nourish Hub and Too Good To Go helped raise awareness about the detrimental impact of food waste on the climate and household budgets.

For more details on their daily leftover lunches, current training opportunities and future events, visit the Nourish Hub website.
