BICKERTON Village Hall held its first Eco Fair on Saturday with visitors coming from across the region to learn about renewable energy and environmental initiatives in the district.
The main focus was harnessing the sun’s energy with The Green Electrician, Tushingham, displaying solar panels for producing electricity and Plumb Eco, Whitchurch, showing how to heat water using a roof-mounted system.
The sun was also being used to run the lights in Bickerton Village Hall thanks to the new solar PV array on its roof.
It also ran the solar plate spinner for the children and a rechargeable battery unit.
Other companies included the Energy Saving Trust, Master Composters, Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Low Carbon Communities Network and EcoNet whilst Tattenhall’s Manor Farm shop ensured that no-one went home empty-handed.
