An update from Carole Lawford & Honey

STOP PRESS! We now have permission to announce that our new garden will be at Sedgefield Primary School! We will work in partnership with them and have use of their land, greenhouse and raised beds to grow our produce to support the community. I’m thrilled and excited about our Market Garden (Sedgefield) C.I.C. project. It will help so many of us. Carole.

We’re back! Since I last wrote, I’ve been having treatment for my MS and have moved into one of the beautiful adapted properties in Caden Court. Named after Father Caden of this parish I’m told; some history in the new. I wish I could promise you a COVID 19 free zone, but it’s bounced us into a new direction with the Market Garden project and I am excited to share it.

Energy Switch

Sedgefield Energy Switch is an initiative from Sedgefield Development Trust

Working together with iChoosr, we're trying to help Sedgefield residents save money on their domestic gas and electricity bills.

Key dates:

  31st March-Registration Opens
  18th May-Registration Closes
  19th May-Day of Auction.
  1st June-Offers letters issued
  31st June-Offer acceptance closure

Registering for the energy switch commits you to absolutely nothing. Once registration closes, there is a tendering process after which you will receive a personal offer. You then simply choose to accept or not, if you think it is worth it.
