CREW and Doddington & Rolo Community Association (DRCA) are working together on an exciting energy efficiency project. The DRCA are a community venue and small business workshop host in Battersea. We have agreed to fund and help install 570 LED light bulbs across the community centre and its network of small business workshops. The superior energy efficiency of LED bulbs over traditional light bulbs will help DRCA save more than 70% on their annual lighting energy bills!
At the moment CREW are in the process of applying for funding to start the project and developing a legal agreement that will ensure the continued success of the project (and carbon emission savings) over the next 5 years.
We hope to share more with you later in the summer.
We are delighted to announce that CREW member and long-time advocate Leonie Cooper has been elected to the London Assembly!
Leonie will represent Merton and Wandsworth at the Greater London Assembly, winning her seat by over 4,000 votes. Among other responsibilities, Leonie will champion environmental issues in the Assembly as Chair of the Environmental Committee.
We want to congratulate Leonie on a momentous win, and wish her luck with the next 4 years representing SW London on behalf of all its residents.
