East Garston Eco Group (EGEG)

East Garston Eco Group (EGEG) was set up in 2022 and aims to help local people reduce their carbon footprint and protect our wonderful biodiversity.

We organised a Green Weekend in the Lambourn Valley’ in April 2023, and again in October, to bring people together to celebrate and explore the range of eco projects in our local area.

We have created several small biodiversity projects around the village hall, Millennium field and Friends meeting house and are using a grant from Veolia to develop these areas further.

We produced an information sheet about local recycling and worked with West Berkshire Council to provide a mini-recycling centre in the village.

We are about to purchase a thermal camera, to help people reduce their energy bills.

We have meetings on the first Sunday afternoon of the month for people to work together to reduce our carbon footprints, following the information on our ‘We can reduce the climate & biodiversity emergencies’ leaflet.

We would love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved. For more information, please follow us on facebook.com/lambournvalleyecocommunity or contact Penny or Pat at ecoeastgarston@gmail.com or 07768 981658.
