Anthony Mangnall MP meeting

Simon Oldridge from the Climate Action Group met with local MP Anthony Mangnall yesterday to discuss Staverton Parish’s Net Zero emissions initiative including the Energy Audit for which Riverford are donating an organic gift box worth £50 (prize draw at the Breakfast Market)

Mr Mangnall was very interested in the project and extremely keen to support it.  He offered to come and speak at the Staverton & Landscove Climate Fair currently being planned for later this year.

Simon explained that more up-front grant support is needed as most people in the parish don’t have the financial resources to afford the outlay to upgrade their insulation, or replace their oil boilers with air source heat pumps.

Mr Mangnall was very supportive of the energy audit, and asked our Climate Action Group to come and meet with a panel of climate experts that he is setting up to explain the needs of our local community.
