Forecast is for a ‘Green’ Christmas in Blackrock….


Never mind a ‘White’ Christmas…..it’s a ‘Green’ one all the way in Blackrock on Saturday 1st December!
But forget about reaching into your pocket to buy trinkets or baubles or Christmas decorations, this is a ‘Green Fair’ with a difference –one that will actually save you money and have long term savings into the New Year and beyond!
Blackrock Tidy Towns are hosting a ‘Green Christmas Fair’ in the Community Centre in Blackrock from 11am – 1pm on Saturday 1st December to provide householders with lots of information, tips and advice on how to ‘green’ up your home, making it more sustainable, cost efficient and environmentally friendly.
As well as providing practical advice and money-saving offers this is also a fun family event with lots of attractions for children and parents alike. ‘Martin the Magician’ will be making an appearance with a number of free magic shows, not to mention Pamela Whitaker of Groundswell who will host a ‘wreath-making’ workshop for children, using materials from the Biodiversity Forest Garden in Blackrock Park. As well as being great fun, crafting nature into the home is a wonderful way to green the home environment with nature’s splendour.
From a practical point or view, with winters getting colder and energy costs continuing to soar, it makes more sense than ever to check out your home and see where savings can be made. From food waste to energy and water conservation, Blackrock’s ‘Green Christmas Fair’ will have a host of exhibitors on hand with lots of advice and money-saving offers to help you improve your home. Information on energy surveys, BER ratings, solar panels, insulation, triple glazed windows, food waste ‘digesters’ and water saving devices will be available, in addition to tips and advice from ‘An Taisce’ and ‘Electric Ireland’. There will also be a Greenhome information stand manned by the National Greenhome office which will facilitate interested householders to register for this sustainability management programme, saving money and saving the environment.
With spot prizes, energy and water saving devices to be won, it will be well worth your while to come along so make sure to visit the Community Centre in Blackrock on Saturday 1st December between 11am and 1pm! Further information is available at blackrockvillage.ie)
