New Year’s Eve Ceilidh 2021 – cancelled

We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s New Year’s Eve Ceilidh due to current situation with the new coronavirus strain.

We thought it better to cancel now rather than wait until next week when we expect the Government to be placing more restrictions on activity indoors and the number of people meeting from different households as has happened already in Scotland and Wales.

Green Homes grant

– improve the energy efficiency of your home with a grant via your local authority with work being done by Eon.

Residents of the districts of Redcar and ClevelandHambleton, Richmondshire, Ryedale and the borough of Scarborough with an annual income below £30,000 and a low energy efficient property (energy efficiency rating of D, E, F or G) can apply for the full cost of having a range of energy efficient and low carbon measures installed in their homes.

The measures available include external and cavity wall insulation, double glazed windows and doors, loft insulation, solar panels, air source heat pumps and smart heating controls.

Improvements to energy efficiency can help to make your home warmer, reduce the cost of utility bills and lower the carbon emissions produced.

The energy provider E.ON is working with the four councils to deliver the scheme and will be installing the energy efficiency measures in customer’s homes.

The easiest way for you to apply to the scheme is on the E.ON website. Alternatively, you can email E.ON or call them on 0333 202 4820, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

You do not need to be an E.ON or E.ON Next energy customer to apply.

General information and local case studies on the kinds of measures that can be considered in this scheme are available on other pages of this website. See how to increase energy efficiency with insulation and read about air source heat pumps, solar PV panels to generate electricity and solar thermal panels to provide hot water.

If your home has an Energy Performance Certificate it will be used as the starting point in the application process. You should have one if you have bought or begun renting your home in recent years but if you are unsure about your home’s energy efficiency and cannot find your certificate you can use the page find an energy certificate to view and download one.
