Window Wonderland!

Thornhill Windows Advent Calendar

As you know there won’t be a Light Up Thornhill celebration this year (boo) ……… but the Thornhill Christmas Fairy (TCT) thought we should try to brighten up the village in another way (hurrah).

So, each day during Advent a different decorated window in the village will be revealed. We hope you will enjoy looking out for these windows as you go about the village.

If you can’t make it to the village you’ll be able to see photos of them at https://calendar.myadvent.net/?id=803cfb0418f116bd4bcf16f25ec1176f

Home Energy Scotland Webinar

Home Energy Scotland webinar: How saving water helps save money on energy bills

Around 17% of the average heating bill relates to heating water. As we are all home more due to coronavirus restrictions, our water and energy use will be affected meaning our energy bills could increase. This online workshop provides practical advice on how to save water and money, including using water wisely when taking a shower, washing your clothes, or making a cup of tea. On top of that, there’s the value of not wasting such a valuable resource and contributing to the broader good of helping to manage supply, now and into the future.

This workshop is open to all, colleagues, family and friends could benefit too.

Once you have registered, Home Energy Scotland will email you a link to join the session that is being held using Zoom.

Thurs, 26 November 11am – register for your free place now

If you aren’t able to attend the session, for new dates and more information, contact Jacqueline.mackenzie@sc.homeenergyscotland.org.
