Pictured above are the new solar panels which have been doing very good business over the last few weeks. They have generated an average of more than 200 KWhrs each day for the whole of April. This is a massive 6000 KWhrs for the month of April, or approximately 1.3 tonnes of carbon saved.
April has also seen the planting of nearly 1000 trees. These will provide a great habitat for local wildlife, a natural screen for pitches and a fuel supply for our hungry wood burners in the years to come. Varieties include Silver Birch, Hazel, Rowan, Wild Cherry, Holly, Ash, Crab Apple and Oak. The Woodland trust has recommended tree types and quantities after analysing our projected usage figures over the next two decades. This ongoing programme will enable our fossil fuel requirements to be virtually eliminated in the service block and bar.

The Quiet Quiz and Easter Bingo
Over £200 was raised for the Cumbrian Air Ambulance at Easter with the answering of some very tricky questions. Thank you to our quiz master Chris Durham and for all those who took part!
The new ladies showers and Toilets are now fully open. Large showers, free hair driers, Italian loos etc all help them to be fairly posh. The best bits however, as always, are the things that you dont see! These include aerated showers, underfloor heating, recycled WC flush water, high thermal insulation etc.
Da Da Da Daarrr.. The Quiet has a piano again..! The official opening of the keyboard will be on Saturday 14th May. Please come for a sing along or just to enjoy the atmosphere.
Do you play an instrument or sing? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can organise a date for a music evening where you can all come and perform.
