The recent Bath Green Homes Open Homes Weekend was a great success, with 18 open homes across Bath receiving more than 700 visits.
The event organised by Transition Bath, Bath Preservation Trust and Bath & North East Somerset Council was supported by more than 80 volunteers who gave up their time to help with stewarding, leafleting and even bunting making.
Cllr Paul Crossley (Lib-Dem, Southdown), Leader of Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: “This year’s open homes weekend was a real success; the homes that were open provided great inspiration to residents wanting to make their own homes warmer, greener and cheaper to run. We thank all the home openers and volunteers who made the event possible.”
