January Meeting

Our January meeting was a talk by Erica Thompson on the One Planet Scheme. It was a very informative meeting and many members who attended were very interested in how the scheme worked. Erica explained what was required of anyone interested in going down this line of building and was happy to take anyone interested through the stages.
