It is October and h.Energy is here again. This is its fourth year and it’s bigger than ever, with about 130 sustainability focused events taking place between 12th and 20th October. As ever it’s organized by New Leaf, and there is a link below to their latest newsletter which in a couple of sides summarizes the week’s activities and has links to the full brochure and to lots of the individual events.

What is billed as the keynote event takes place at the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford on Tuesday 15th October at 7.30 pm. The event is titled ‘Re-energising Herefordshire: Taking the opportunity to meet our energy challenge’ and it will also be the launch of the new carbon reduction charter for Herefordshire. Rob Garner from New Leaf and Roger Phillips from Herefordshire will talk about the charter, what’s been done and what’s planned, I’ll speak about some of the exciting possibilities of what could be achieved, and Jane Davidson will speak about the Welsh experience of this kind of agenda. Guardian journalist Oliver Balch will be chairing proceedings. There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and to participate.

I know that this blog has a scattering of readers all over the world, but a lot in and around Herefordshire, and I would urge all of you who can make it to come along to the Courtyard on Tuesday 15th. The event will start promptly at 7.30, but do come around 7.00 pm to chat and network in the foyer, and do introduce yourselves to me if you read this blog but do not yet know me!
