Electric car charging
The Esk Valley Camphill Community is committed to removing the carbon emissions from our transport needs by 2028. This means more walking and cycling for those of us that can, and more electric bikes and scooters for those who need a bit of help up the hills.
Our rural location means that to stay connected with the wider world, we rely on our car share scheme which is the main cause of our carbon emissions. We have been systematically replacing our petrol/diesel run vehicles with electric for the last 5 years. We currently have 5 vehicles and 1 electric scooter in our scheme. An essential step in achieving our goal is to increase the number of charging points within the community. At present we only have one installed charging point and we plan to install a further 5 units at a cost of £20,000.
The Camphill Foundation, UK and Ireland has kindly agreed to fund half of the project which means we are asking our friends and supporters for help to raise the remaining £10,000. If you can help, please follow the link to our website.
New property appeal
We are planning to purchase a property that will allow us to offer a new Shared Lives home to people currently awaiting such an opportunity, and provide facilities to expand and develop work opportunities for our members.
Properties that would serve this vision don’t come up very often and they sell very quickly. That’s why we are asking for your help so that we can be ready when the right property comes on the market.
